The Chiropractor’s Bread and Butter
Many people reach out to our Chiropractic office for lower back issues. Lower back pain affects 80% of individuals at some point in their life and 1/3 of the population on a yearly basis.
Causes of Lower Back Pain
One of the most common causes of low back pain comes from a restricted joint in your spine. Your lower back consists of 5 bones stacked on top of each other. There is a soft “disc” between each segment to allow for cushion and flexibility. Each joint in your back should move freely and independently. When one or more joints don’t live up to their potential, we call it a segmental joint restriction.
You should recognize that your problem is common and generally treatable. Chiropractic therapy has proven to be the safest, most effective treatment for joint restrictions. To speed recovery, make an appointment to come to our office as soon as possible, wear supportive shoes, and avoid activities that increase symptoms. Be sure to take frequent breaks from sitting. You may need to limit heavy physical activity, but you should avoid complete bed rest.
Make sure to tell your chiropractic physician if you have any numbness, tingling, or weakness in the butt, legs, or groin. Or if you notice any loss of control with bladder or bowel function.
