What will you do for your low back pain?

by dr.g

Based on my title it appears I am implying you have or will have back pain. That is because statistically you probably will have low back pain.

If you constantly take anti-inflammatory medications or frequently have to rest or be careful due to low back stiffness, you are very likely to suffer one or more episodes that will force you to seek care.

Back pain relief is just one component of chiropractic care, but it is often a patient’s first introduction. Back pain is horribly debilitating affecting all aspects of work and personal life. If you are suffering from back pain, you are not alone. Here are a few facts about back pain that may (or may not) surprise you.
•    Back pain is the number one disability for those under age 45.
•    In the United States of America alone, there is an expected 31 million people with lower back pain at any given time.

Discovering what might be the cause of your lower back pain or weakness is the first step in treatment and prevention of future pain. Chiropractor’s look to find the cause of the problem as opposed to just covering up the symptoms with medications or surgery. In fact, one study demonstrated that chiropractic care was more effective than physical therapy and medical care at preventing lower back recurrence.
