Chiropractic Treatment Benefits

Back Pain

Eighty percent of the population will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason to visit the doctor's office.

Until recently, researchers believed that back pain would heal on its own. We have learned however, that this is not true. Recent studies have shown that when back pain is not treated, the pain may go away temporarily, but will most likely return. It is important to take low back pain seriously and get examined by a chiropractor to help find the cause.

Chiropractors are experts at diagnosing the cause and determining the proper treatment for low back pain. There are many causes of back pain including sprained ligaments, strained muscles, ruptured disc, trigger points and inflamed joints. Car accidents as well as sport injuries can also be a common cause of pain. Structural imbalances can cause severe pain with even the simplest movement like picking up a paper or a pencil off the floor. Other causes could be posture, arthritis or emotional stress.

A chiropractor examination will help to find the cause of the pain in order to determine the best treatment plan.
