Low Back Pain

Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives.

The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements—for example, picking up a pencil from the floor— can have painful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain. Back pain can also directly result from disease of the internal organs, such as kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots or bone loss.

With today’s growing emphasis on quality care, clinical outcomes and cost effectiveness, spinal manipulation is receiving increased attention. The epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse has also led to wider acknowledgment of the benefits of non-drug approaches to pain.

Spinal manipulation is a safe and effective non-drug spine pain treatment. It reduces pain (decreasing the need for medication in many cases), rapidly advances physical therapy, and requires very few passive forms of treatment, such as bed rest.

80% of people will have low back pain at some point in their lives.  This can be a debilitating and stressful situation. Have you ever bent down to pick up a penny and not been able to get back up or sat at your computer for too long and found you  were super stiff when you wanted to get up.  Your low back takes a lot of stress and keeps on going… until it doesn’t.  Think about your body weight being distributed, your low back (and SI) are where your body weight goes from one structure to two structures (your legs).  If there is breakdown in that distribution it can irritate your nerves and cause pain.
