Nearly everyone suffers from an episode of lower back pain at some point during their lifetime. In fact, studies by the American Chiropractic Association show that approximately 31 million Americans suffer from lower back pain at any point in time. While there are many treatment options designed to combat the symptoms of back pain, these very rarely treat the underlying cause of pain. As a result, they allow back pain to return at a later time. Check out this overview of how chiropractic care can treat the source of your lower back pain for more information.
Most primary care physicians will recommend oral medications, corticosteroids, or injectables to lessen the symptoms associated with lower back pain. Unfortunately, these medications only work to treat the symptoms of back pain, rather than the source of the pain. In some cases, your physician may refer you to a spinal specialist to determine if surgical intervention is necessary—however, there are a number of post-operative complications associated with surgical procedures performed on the delicate structures within your back and spine. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, is a safe and effective treatment method for back pain that also works to restore function and mobility, and prevent further injury.
During a routine chiropractic session, your chiropractor will utilize controlled movements to manipulate the joints and bones within your body. These structural adjustments not only help to alleviate stress, but also help to realign the delicate structures of your spine, ultimately decompressing your vertebra and combating the symptoms of back pain. By treating the source of your pain, rather than the pain alone, your chiropractor can help you make a full recovery and avoid future problems.
