Need Low Back Pain Treatment? Try Chiropractic
Low back pain affects about 80 percent of adults at some point in their lives. While there are different ways to address this problem, one of the most effective is chiropractic care. Whether you are dealing with low back pain for the first time or you have noticed a pattern of discomfort over months or even years, there are some good reasons to consider chiropractic care.
Causes of Low Back Pain
The most common reason for low back pain is an injury of some kind. Sports injuries, car accidents and other traumatic injuries can lead to some of the following conditions:
- Strains and Sprains: Strains affect the tendons and muscles, while sprains are injuries to the ligaments. They may occur if you lift something heavy or overstretch the back.
- Sciatica: This painful condition is the result of compression on the sciatic nerve. In addition to pain, you might also notice numbness or weakness in the affected leg.
- Herniated Discs: Spongy discs between the vertebrae can also become injured, bulging out of the spine and placing pressure on nerves.
- Skeletal Irregularities: Some people are born with deformities of the spine that can lead to pain and debilitation. One of the most common irregularities is scoliosis.

Chiropractic is effective low back pain treatment for any of the conditions listed above.
