Did you know 80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives? Back pain is considered the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s surgery. Unlike the thoracic spine, the low back is very unstable in order to allow us a greater deal of mobility to touch our toes, tie our shoes or pick something up from the ground. However, the cost of this flexibility is increased risk of injury.
Low back pain can be attributed to a number of different reasons, such as stress, strained muscles, ruptured discs, triggered points or inflamed joints. When any of the aforementioned happens your muscles become sore, weak and loaded with trigger points(small muscle spasms) causing that unbearable pain.
Research has shown that Chiropractic treatment is the most effective treatment when it comes to lower back pain, especially in terms of the long-term outcomes than any other therapy. Chiropractic treatment simply adjusts the lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis in order to re-establish normal motion and position of your bones and joints.
