Choosing Chiropractic as an Effective Low Back Pain Treatment
Do you suffer from ongoing pain in your lower back?
You’re not the only one.
80% of adults will endure pain in their lower back at some point during their lifetime. This may be a debilitating pain that comes on suddenly or it could be a dull pain that never leaves them.
Therefore, it’s perhaps no coincidence that 8 million Americans choose to visit their chiropractor, often seeking their help for low back pain.
Because researchers have discovered that the various skills chiropractors use, including manual therapies, provide an effective low back pain treatment.
Who Needs Low Back Pain Treatment?
Low back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including pregnancy, weight gain, age, and lack of exercise. However, pushing, lifting, or pulling heavy objects are some of the most common causes, particularly if the right techniques aren’t used.
For example, when you lift something, if you don’t provide your back with the right support, your lower back muscles will be put under undue strain. This can result in tiny tears that cause debilitating pain, or it may lead to a disc injury (e.g. rupturing, bulging, or herniated).
Why Should You Opt for Chiropractic Care?
When you first visit your chiropractor in Vancouver for low back pain treatment, they’ll talk to you about your medical history and lifestyle so they can understand what factors may be involved in your symptoms. A physical examination will follow and may include other tests (e.g. diagnostic imaging) to help determine what course of treatment will be most effective.
Their tailored treatment program will often include a variety of manual adjustments (specialist chiropractic techniques) that involve placing various joints and muscles under gentle force. This helps improve the range of motion in your spine.
To ensure your recovery continues while you’re at home, they’ll also provide you with some easy-to-follow advice, including simple exercises and lifestyle changes you can make that will boost the health of and strengthen your spine.
Combining all of these effective techniques will combat the pain you’re currently suffering from, while also making sure you aren’t at risk of back injuries in the future.
