80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is considered as the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office. Unlike the thoracic spine, the low back is very unstable in order to allow us to have a great deal of mobility to touch our toes, tie our shoes or pick something up from the ground, but at the cost of increased risk of injury.
Low back pain could happen due to many different reasons, it could be stress, strained muscles, ruptured disks, triggered points or inflamed joints. When any of these previously mentioned reasons happen your muscles become sore, weak and loaded with trigger points causing that unbearable pain.
Research has shown that Chiropractic treatment is the most effective treatment when it comes to lower back pain especially on the long-term outcomes than any other treatments. Chiropractic treatment simply adjusts the lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis in order to re-establish normal motion and position of your bones and joints.
