Carrying kids on your hip or shoulders, cleaning the floors, lifting bags of groceries from the car, or that little “extra” that’s been added to your stomach area over the years. Lifting, bending and twisting, or even worse, sitting all day at work. Add to this a slip or fall or a previous car accident and it’s not to difficult to see why studies show that approximately 80% of Americans will suffer from lower back pain at some time during their life. I’ve seen patients with intense lower back pain who simply bent over to pick up a pencil. Now, of course it wasn’t the pencil causing the back pain, but rather the lower back’s structure (meaning the muscles, joints, discs and bones) losing their ability to function normally and causing the loss of normal support for the spine.
Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in finding the cause of your lower back pain. Combining spinal adjustments (chiropractic treatment) with proper exercise and stretching are the keys to eliminating your lower back pain for good!
