If you’re like most people, you’ve had lower back pain at some point in your life. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, next to upper-respiratory infections. In fact, it’s estimated that lower back pain causes problems for more than half of the adult population each year. So, what’s the deal?
Your lower back is highly vulnerable and constantly under strain supporting your upper body. If it’s out of adjustment or has weakened supporting muscles, something as simple as taking a bag of groceries out of the trunk, picking something up off the floor or even simply bending down to pet the dog can cause a low back injury. And when that happens, you’ll want to talk to Holmes Chiropractic about lower back pain treatments and back pain management.
Chiropractor NJ for Lower Back Pain Management
Poor posture, injuries, wear and tear, heredity and excess weight are just some of the lower back pain causes that can make each day a struggle. Dull aching, burning or tingling, and numbness can develop quickly or worsen slowly over the course of a couple days or weeks. If you notice the pain shooting down into your buttocks or legs, this can be a sign of more serious problems that may require therapy for sciatica or pinched nerve treatment. Since there’s an endless array of low back pain causes, and the pain can become quite serious if left untreated, it’s important to seek professional help when you’re suffering.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be the most effective form of lower back pain treatments. In fact, major studies have shown that chiropractic back pain management is more effective, cheaper and has better long-term benefits than any other treatment. Chiropractic care is also the only treatment that re-establishes normal vertebral motion and position in the spine. All other treatments, such as muscle relaxants, painkillers and bed rest, only serve to minimize the symptoms of the problem rather than correct the problem itself.
