With the advent of the 9 to 5 culture in institutions and workplace, and with minimum physical activity to supplement it, pain in the lower back has become a global problem which affects people of all ages. Most people don’t stop to think about how the lower back functions. All they know about it is that it is causing them a hang of a lot of pain and discomfort.
The lower back also referred to as the lumbar area actually services quite a few functions for the body such as structural support as well as protection of certain body tissues.
Because the lower back is busy doing quite a few things such as being involved in most of your movement, it is open to injury to the spine, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Common causes of this pain include nerve irritation, certain conditions of the bone and joints as well as lumbar strain.
Your lower back-pain is isolating you
Lower back pain can be debilitating, sucking all the joy out of life because it puts a halt on everything you want to do. In fact, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke tells us that this pain is the most common cause of job-related disability.
With ongoing pain in the lower back day after day, everybody knows you as a miserable chronic low back pain sufferer. Their initial sympathy has changed to impatience and irritation and they’ve quite frankly moved on and don’t bother with you anymore.
It’s time to claim your life back with the right chiropractic team. They do an awesome job with this manipulative technique used primarily to correct the alignment of the spinal column.
It is interesting to note that this method was developed way back in 1895 by Daniel Palmer, who identified some spinal adjustments that could be made to correct the displacement of the skeletal frame.
Laying on hands
Today, chiropractors from all over the world apply this method, a non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system. Spinal problems can occur as a result of so many things – poor posture, accidents, strains as well as congenital skeletal defects. Pain in the lower back can also be brought on because of certain diseases such as kidney infections, sciatica as well as infections of the spine.
The adjustment of spinal segments, however, allows nerve messages to flow freely again between the brain and the body organs.
Most of our patients come to us because they’re sick of being ‘sick’, in pain and out of things. They’re tired of treatments that just treat the pain and nothing else. At Complete Chiropractic, our focus is on neurostructural correction – making changes to the foundation of the spine by focusing on the alignment of the spine.
Once the NeuroStructural Shift is corrected then the secondary conditions such as aches and pains, muscle strains, stiffness and other forms of movement impairments start melting away. The treatment isn’t only safe but highly effective for bringing relief from pain, but also stress.
