Low Back Pain

If you're suffering from lower back pain, you're not alone. More that 80% of North Americans will at some time in their life suffer from the disabling confines of lower back pain. Low back pain is second in prevalence only to the common cold! The majority of back pain patients have not experienced any trauma, accidents or major injuries prior to the onset of their problem. The cause of most back pain is the cumulative affect of improper sitting posture, poor work habits, incorrect lifting, lack of proper exercise and other lifestyle-related factors. All of these factors cause stress and imbalances on the spine which eventually lead to pain. This is why people often injure their back by just bending over to pick up their shoes. The spine was already compromised and just the simple act of bending was enough to set off the problem. When this occurs, the surrounding back muscles go into spasm to protect the stressed or injured tissues of the back. Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists in low back pain! There are several studies that show that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice. In 1994, the US government found that chiropractic is the most effective methods of care for acute adult low back pain. They also revealed that bed rest was harmful. Further, it stated that muscle relaxers and surgery can be unnecessary and even dangerous. In Canada, a 1993 study, concluding that chiropractic care for those with low back pain was far superior to medicine in terms of safety, science and cost-effectiveness. And above all the finding revealed superiority in the area of patient satisfaction. The facts also prove that chiropractic relieves chronic, severe pain in half the time it takes medicine. Numerous studies prove chiropractic is both effective and cost-effective for low back, neck and mid back complaints within the first month of symptoms. Chiropractic aims to restore normal function to the spine allowing the vertebral column normal motion and posture. This improved function is brought about by specific chiropractic adjustments to these vertebral subluxations (misalignments).

It is important to have your spine checked on a regular basis to ensure the functionality of your lower back. Chiropractic is safe and effective. Patients under chiropractic care are often able to return to normal function and activity more quickly than other patients treated with standard medical protocol of treatment.
