Low back pain is a potentially debilitating problem that affects millions of people each year. In fact, 31 million Americans will experience low back pain this year and 80% of people will suffer from back pain at some point in their life. Low back pain is so problematic that it results in the second most common reason for doctor’s office visits. Low back pain is also the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
 
What Causes Low Back Pain
 
Most cases of low back pain are mechanical in nature, meaning that the low back is out of alignment or has weakened supporting muscles. In Chiropractic, this is known as a subluxation. Pain can also occur from excess strain, which results in sprains, strains or spasms in one or more of the muscles or ligaments in the back. If the spine becomes overly strained, it may result in compression and damage to the disc, which may put pressure on nerves connected to the spinal cord that control body movements and transmit signals from the body to the brain. Back pain can also be caused by poor posture, stress, pregnancy, and degenerative conditions such as arthritis, bone diseases, and viral infections. Smoking can also cause low back pain as smoking reduces blood flow to the lower spine and causes the spinal discs to degenerate. As people age, strength of the bone and the elasticity and tone of the muscle tend to decrease. This leads the discs to beginning to lose fluid and flexibility, as this occurs, nerves become activated and pain ensues.
 
Treatment for Low Back Pain
 
The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research recommend that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first and it recommends chiropractic care and spinal manipulation as the only safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults. The Journal of the American Medical Association also suggested chiropractic care as an option for people suffering from low back pain. Chiropractic care aims to re-establish normal motion and position of your bones and joints to allow for more flexibility. Doctors and Physical Therapists can provide a list of gentle exercises which aim to keep muscles moving, which speeds the recovery process. Ice and heat also work well for initial treatment of low back pain. It is recommended that individuals use ice to help reduce pain and inflammation for the first three days, followed by heat to help relax muscles and increase blood flow.  Contact us for locations
