Lower Back Pain can be the worst

Lower Back Pain can be the worst

Everyone suffers from lower back pain from time to time whether from lifting a heavy object improperly, or from a traumatic accident or fall, our lower backs take a beating every day.  American’s sedentary lifestyle contributes to lower back pain and now it has been coined as the Sitting Disease.  Research indicates that Sitting Disease can raise the risk of cancers, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.  Additionally, a lack of physical activity can cause significant lower back pain.

Each year, over 20 million Americans visit a Chiropractor and nearly 10 million of those are seeking relief from back pain.  Chiropractic care includes not only hands-on spinal manipulations, but massage and nutritional counseling in full-service Chiropractor Clinics.  The human body’s musculoskeletal structure can move out of alignment in a number of ways.  Car accidents, repetitive motion, sports injuries, falls and even a lack of exercise can cause misalignment resulting in discomfort and severe pain.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment for treating low back pain, regardless of cause.  Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia can also contribute to lower back pain and a licensed Chiropractor can provide pain relief and through manipulations and adjustments, that cause the body to heal itself.  Chiropractors believe in treating patients with chronic or acute pain without surgery.  After a treatment session, unlike with surgery, there is no recovery time down time and healing commences immediately.

Some patients may find that a single musculoskeletal manipulation is enough to ease the pain; however many patients believe that ongoing treatments are an avenue towards a healthier lifestyle with less pain.  Chiropractors that believe in a whole-body wellness program are just as necessary as a regular oil change for your car or a yearly tooth cleaning.  Ongoing appointments after a trauma or accident help stave of additional lower back pain and increase mobility and flexibility of the joints and soft tissues.

Chiropractors are focused on making their patients healthier without the use of prescription medications and surgeries.  They focus on teaching their patients the best corrective exercises and lifestyle changes for healthy longevity.  In addition to manual adjustments, massage and nutritional counseling are hallmarks of a great Chiropractor.

Chiropractic care may be thought of as primarily a discipline for relieving back pain; however there is so much more it can do for the mind, body and spirit.  Chiropractic treatments are effective for treating many illnesses and conditions including headaches, ADHD, arthritis, allergies, stress, depression, asthma, and much much more.
