Are you experiencing lower back pain, stiffness, or discomfort that’s interfering with your daily activities? If so, you’re not alone. More than 31 million Americans experience lower back pain in their lifetime.
Lower back pain can develop for a plethora of reasons such as your lifestyle, whether it’s sedentary or active, from a chronic health condition, or injuries as a result of a car accident, work, or a slip and fall. Here is what you need to know.
When you consider how your lower back is one of the most common areas that can experience chronic pain, you can understand why this painful symptom accounts for some 264 million lost workdays each year and why patients seek treatment with a chiropractor.
When you suffer from agonizing pain toward the base of your spine, you can’t do physical labor or even manage many sedentary office tasks, much less enjoy a comfortable productive life.
The good news is that you don’t have to let lower back pain keep you down, nor do you need surgery or painkiller to stop it. Natural treatments can help you manage and conquer your lower back pain.
Lower back pain is practically inevitable at some point or another. The lower back supports the entire upper half of the body, which represents a considerable weight. An acute injury can tear back muscles; dislodge vertebrae, or herniated discs in the lower back. Constant or repetitive strain from a musculoskeletal imbalance or poor posture can lead to chronic lower back strain.
Chronic lower back pain often stems from natural changes in your physique. For instance, as you get older, your spinal discs can start to flatten and bulge, straining vertebral joints, and pinching major nerve roots. (In the lower spine, pinched sciatic nerve tissue can cause leg pain as well as lower back pain.) Spinal arthritis is another cause of age-related lower back pain.
The way a skilled chiropractor can save lower back pain sufferers from surgery or other extreme measures is by identifying and treating any spinal alignment issues that often cause or worsen the symptoms. Gentle, precise applications of force, either manually or through the use of instruments, can shift spinal components back into their proper position, releasing compressed nerves and taking the unnecessary strain off of muscles.
Chiropractors sometimes prescribe other forms of non-invasive treatment to enhance the effectiveness of these lower back adjustments. For example, you may receive a comprehensive treatment plan that includes some combination of chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, massage, and lifestyle recommendations to help you strengthen your lower back, improve your flexibility, and minimize the risk of future back problems
