Back Pain

A Chiropractic Overview of Lower Back Pain

For 80% of people, there is some point in their lives when they experience some sort of back pain. Most of these people have such severe cases that they seek some form of medical treatment – this results in lost wages and lower levels of productivity.
Strained muscles, sprained ligaments, ruptured disks, inflamed joints, arthritis and even psychological stress can trigger lower back pain. That can stop you from functioning as effectively as you can and from resulting in engaging in exciting activities. You may try temporary solutions such as the use of over-the-counter analgesics and heating pads. Unfortunately, these don’t get to the root of the problem – chiropractic treatments do.

The two most common types of back pain are acute lower back pain and chronic lower back pain. Acute lower back pain symptoms can usually be easily improved through simple things like self-care and staying active. Chronic lower back pain, on the other hand, cannot be improved or rectified with the use of pain medication. Chiropractic treatment such as spinal manipulation is much more likely to guarantee improvement.

If you want to ensure that the problem is really in your back, you should take a look at these number of symptoms of back pain:
  • Cramping

  • Muscle spasm

  • Sensitivity of spine to touch and pressure

  • Stiffness

  • Pain in the lower back area

  • Pain in the buttock area

  • Pain after too much inactivity

  • Pain that increases in intensity
