Loss of work and suffering
Lower back pain results in millions or people missing work or becoming less productive due to the constant pain. Many factors can be the root cause for lower back pain including slouching, heavy lifting, trauma, inherited spinal abnormalities or overexertion. Chiropractors use specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve lower back spinal function.
Chiropractic care is safer and more effective than surgery
Chiropractic care is safer and more effective than surgery. The pain-sensing nerves of the spine are in the facet joints. They normally have smooth surfaces for the joints to glide, however these joints can become rough, inflamed and irritated. Surgical treatment involves removing these facet joints, which exposes the spinal cord and can lead to future problems.
A bulging or herniated disc can be another cause of lower back pain. This puts pressure on the spinal cord or nerve root and can cause numbness, tingling or pain down the leg. Surgery involves cutting away the herniated disc tissue which can permanently alter its ability to cuschion the adjacent bines. However, this still doesn’t address the underlying structural cause of the problem.
Chiropractic adjustments specific to the lower back help restore a more normal motion and position of the affected spinal bones. The success of this approach has been widely documented in numerous research projects and has helped many patients avoid risky and costly surgery.
