Low Back Pain
Lower back pain is a common epidemic. It's estimated that approximately 80% of people will experience lower back pain at some point in life. The problem of lower back pain does not descriminate and can affect all ages, from children to the elderly.
A common reaction to lower back pain has habitually been to reach for a bottle of drugs, whether it be a pain killer and/or a muscle relaxer. Having a "chemical" solution for a "mechanical" problem will often cover the symptom of pain but will not address the root cause. A "mechanical" problem means that the underlying cause is a structural alignment issue.
The obvious cause of lower back pain is trauma. A one-time injury such as a slip/fall, sporting injury, improper lifting, and motor vehicle accident.
Other common causes are repetitive stresses such as prolong sitting, poor ergonomics, weak standing posture, deconditioned muscles, and repetitive sports like golf.
The Chiropractic approach is focused on addressing the root cause of lower back pain. A thorough consultation, examination, and x-rays of the lumbosacral spine (lower back and tailbone area), will determine your Chiropractic care. A program of Chiropractic adjustments complimented with a stretching and strengthening program will aid in the resolution of lower back pain.
