How a Chiropractor Can Relieve Lower Back Pain

Do you suffer from chronic lower back pain? Do you find it hard to sit for long? Is this pain bothering you for more than 1-2 weeks? If you are suffering from chronic lower back pain, you are not alone. Lower back pain is one of the most common health conditions that people suffer from.

You may be consuming over-the-counter painkillers such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or using a cold pack to relieve the pain. However, these measures are only temporary. And using pain-killers can lead to problems more serious than back pain.

A chiropractor can provide long-lasting lower back pain relief with proven treatments.

Causes of Lower Back Pain

While some people suffer from low back pain after an injury, most of us experience this pain because of our lifestyle and habits. These include:

  • Poor posture for longer periods,
  • Incorrect posture while lifting heavy objects, as well as
  • Abrupt, sudden movements of the trunk.

These results in overstretching and tearing of the ligaments and also causes damage to the involved muscle fibers. The sedentary lifestyle of many Americans increases risk for these types of injuries.

Sports, auto accidents, and other traumatic injuries are also common causes of lower back pain. But what actually causes this pain? Trauma-related bone fractures and nerve compression lead to chronic pain. Poor posture leads to abnormalities in your spine such as degeneration of the jelly-like disc between the bones of your back that results in immense pain. Dislocation of bones at the joint due to accidents also leads to the onset of pain.

Who is at Risk of Developing Lower Back Pain?

If you do not do regular exercise and maintain your weight, you are at an increased risk of lower back pain. People who are under constant stress or who suffer from health conditions like arthritis and cancer are also subjected to lower back pain. If you fit into any of these categories, you may experience back pain in the near future.

How Chiropractors Relieve Lower Back Pain?

When we talk about the conventional treatments for lower back pain, medicines provide temporary relief. Surgery is another option for some conditions, though many people shy away from that because of the recovery time.

One of the best healthcare givers is the chiropractor for lower back pain. Chiropractors manipulate your spine using different techniques that relieve pressure over nerves and the disk between the spine's bones.

Approximately 7.7 million Americans avail the services of chiropractors for lower back pain. Higher success rates of chiropractic treatment of lower back pain signify the efficacy of this treatment modality for chronic pain.

A chiropractor for lower back pain can give you long-lasting pain relief without the need for heavy medication or surgery.
