Can Chiropractic help with my Back Pain?

It is estimated that 80% of adults with experience back pain at one point in their lives. Worldwide, low back is the leading cause of disability & one of the main reasons why employees miss work. Pain, acute or chronic, is  your body’s way of communicating that something is not right. It is not a symptom to be ignored!

Back pain

Your spine is a intricate structure made up bones, joints & discs (24 to be exact!) These bones & joints have to line up & move in a very specific way for your body to function the way it should; pain free. Ligaments & muscles also connect & support to spine, allowing extremities to move & the body to function freely.

At the root level, back pain can be caused by subluxations, or when the mis-alignment of the joint/bones due to a variety of reasons. This causes pressure/pinching of the nerve exiting out, which can decrease the nerve’s function but also cause pain.

Back pain can be caused by a multitude of factors, including:

  • Strained muscles
  • Sprained ligaments
  • Accidents or Injuries
  • Bulging, herniated or slipped discs (the spine’s shock absorbers)
  • Degenerative spinal disease
  • Poor Posture & Ergonomics
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Obesity
  • Disease of internal organs, such as kidney infections

Sometimes the simplest movements, like bending over to pick something up, can cause back pain!

Back pain, if not corrected, can lead to:

  • Sciatica
  • Leg and/or foot pain or numbness
  • Compromised posture & gait
  • Insomnia
  • Missed work & productivity
  • Use of Over the Counter or Prescription pain medication or Muscle Relaxers
  • Surgery

Medication may provide temporary relief of the pain & give you a sense of well-being. However, medication is only treating the symptoms and not addressing the ROOT CAUSE of the back pain. They essentially “mask” the problem, but doesn’t fix it. Medications not only are a “temporary fix” but they also bring a host of side effects, affecting other parts of your body not initially a problem. The root issue is still present and is not a cure.

Chiropractic care is the most natural, safest and effective ways in treating low back pain & symptoms associated with it. In fact, surgeons & orthopedics refer patients to chiropractors as the first defense against pain & spinal issues.
