What is Low Back Pain?
The lower part of the back is designed to provide support, strength and flexibility to the upper body. It’s no surprise, then, that the low back would present with pain and suffer injury from daily activity. It is estimated that nearly 31 million Americans are treated for lower back discomfort. Ranging in severity—pain, soreness, or spasms in the low back must be addressed for the body to function efficiently.
Where Chiropractic Care Comes In.
Routine chiropractic care offers low back pain management that is a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medications, which are typical first-line treatments for patients with lower back pain and swelling.
One of the most common chiropractic care treatments involves adjustments. Performing adjustments to affected areas reduces joint restrictions and misalignments in the spine. Targeting inflammation and increasing joint mobility improves nervous system function and overall spinal health. With routine adjustments, the body is able to better manage symptoms triggered by low back pain.
