chiropractic care and causes of low back pain

Over the last few decades, low back pain in Gibsonia PA has grown to be one of the most common reasons for visits to various health care facilities, with recent estimates placing it as the 5th most common. Other studies have shown that nearly 78% of people experience low back pain at least once in their lifetime and as much as 18-28% of people are currently experiencing pain at this moment.

Having lower back pain can make little things that we take for granted such as tying our shoes or getting in and out of the car a very trying and painful situation to navigate. As a result, many people lose money from time missed at work, have an inability to participate in their favorite recreational activities, and have seen a general decrease in quality of living due to this debilitating pain. In addition, the cost of treating low back pain has been enormous and placed a large burden on our health care system. This has led many people to ask the questions; what causes low back pain and what are the most affordable and effective treatments available?

Causes of Low Back Pain in Gibsonia PA

The causes of low back pain often seem endless, but it has been found through research and over time that some factors tend to be more common than others. Some of the most common causes include a herniated disc, a recent fracture, osteoarthritis, spondylolisthesis, a recent sprain of the back musculature, and spinal stenosis. Of those listed, a herniated disc is often the most likely culprit. Fortunately, our Primary Spine Care doctors are trained to provide you with the most appropriate care.

The Most Effective Treatment for Low Back Pain

The majority of people that have visited a chiropractor for the treatment of low back pain have not only gained significant relief from treatment.  Chiropractic care has been shown time and time again to be the most effective treatment for low back pain.

The reason that chiropractic care is so effective for fixing low back pain is that it gets to the source of the problem. In the majority of cases, lower back pain starts when joints in the pelvis or spine become misaligned. Small misalignments can cause pressure and swelling on the nerves that exit the spine. This pressure can lead to anything from minor pain to extreme discomfort. Chiropractors are able to re-align the spine and the joints in the pelvis to help remove the swelling and pressure.

In 20 years of treating patients with lower back pain, we consider lower back pain to be a little problem when handled early, and a big problem when not handled at all.

Patients often have warning signs and episodes of lower back stiffness and discomfort before a debilitating episode comes. Acting swiftly and being evaluated by experts can prevent a crisis and keep the spine and pelvic joints working properly.
