Over 80% of the population will experience low back pain at some point in their life
The back is a complex structure that is made of the muscles, spinal disks, and the spinal cord. This is a sensitive area for humans because it manages thousands of senses and nerves throughout the body.
Back pain is different from one person to the next. The pain can have a slow onset or come on suddenly. The pain may be intermittent or constant. There are many causes of low back pain. The vast majority of low back pain is mechanical in nature. It sometimes occurs after a specific movement such as lifting or bending. Low back pain is rarely related to serious underlying conditions, but when these conditions do occur, they require immediate medical attention.
Certain factors may elevate one’s risk for low back pain, including age, fitness level, pregnancy, weight gain, genetics, occupational risk factors (surgeons, dentists, warehouse/construction workers, and store cashiers are the jobs with the highest risk of low back pain); mental health factors and even backpack overload with children.
People suffering from back pain may find difficulty performing everyday tasks like sitting, sleeping and engaging in physical activities, ultimately your entire life is affected by this seemingly unsolvable pain problem that just won’t go away.
Yet many of those who suffer from low back pain ever experience any long term solutions to their pain problem. While most people might reach for the over-the-counter pain medications that just mask the pain, there’s another way of dealing with that pain: chiropractic care. It will transform your life bringing long term solutions to low back pain problems.
After complete medical history and physical examination and identifying the source of your pain, Dr. Anton Pyatetsky will put together a comprehensive and individualized chiropractic plan that is designed to alleviate painful symptoms of your condition.
Treatment for low back pain generally depends on on the source and severity of your back pain.
Chiropractic treatment can assist with reducing back pain, and reducing future damage by helping to maintain good joint and muscle health through physical manipulations as well as age-appropriate exercise recommendations that are specifically targeted to strengthening lower back and abdominal muscles.
