According to the American Chiropractic Association, most lower back pain is not caused by serious conditions.
Instead, many of us, sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints with the simplest of movements. We may lean down to pick something up from the floor and suddenly feel real pain.
A back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles. Poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can all cause or complicate back pain.
ACS Tells Us Pain Signals May Continue
Back injuries are a part of everyday life, and the spine is quite good at dealing with what we think of as “pulled” muscles. These very minor injuries usually heal within a day or two. Some pain, however, continues. The reasons for that are unclear. Researchers are weighing not only neuromuscular reasons, stress, and mood changes, but also the way that pain signals can continue to be sent through the body even after the original problem is healed.
Will Low-Back Pain Go Away By Itself?
A recent study found that back pain that is caused by more than a very minor injury and not treated may go away temporarily, but often returns.
To avoid chronic back pain, make an appointment with your local chiropractor. Chiropractors are trained to work with mechanical problems that can cause low-back pain. Many patients feel improvement shortly after starting chiropractic treatment—even those with chronic back pain.
Seeing A Chiropractor
Chiropractors believe wellness and routine chiropractic care should be as basic for us as healthy diets and daily exercise. They have lots of experience in keeping backs healthy.
They offer the purest form of chiropractic care, providing full spinal adjustments using the diversified technique to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of the spine.
Subluxations are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or joints. When the misalignment is corrected it may have far reaching effects on back, neck and sciatica pain. It may also help with allergies, TMJ, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
If this direct focus on wellness sounds as great to you as it does to majority of the people in the U.S., make an appointment and find out more.
