Lower back pain can be one of the most disabling and costly of all neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Over 80% of the population experiences lower back pain at some point in their lives. Of those 80%, many will have recurring back pain â€“ each episode being worse than the one before. Common causes of lower back pain include: poor posture, injury, repetitive strains and poor physical conditioning.
Chiropractic care is a tried and true, safe and effective way to manage lower back pain. Chiropractic treatment has been proven effective in dealing with pain due to subluxations (stuck or dysfunctional joints), pinched nerves, strained muscles, degenerated joint disease, sprained ligaments, arthritis, herniated disks or flat feet.
