Lower Back Pain Symptoms and Solutions

Lower back pain is experienced by 31 million Americans at any given time, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. The prevalence of lower back pain is common, as 70-85% of ALL PEOPLE have back pain that requires treatment of some sort at some time in life. On a yearly basis, the annual prevalence of back pain averages 30%. Studies show that when back pain is not treated, it may go away temporarily, but will mostly likely return.

So what makes back pain so common? It has to do with biomechanics, that we walk upright, loading the spinal discs and joints much more than our “4-legged” friends. Our spines show joint degeneration, deterioration and arthritis much sooner.

Most of us have bad postural habits for our structure when it comes to sitting, standing and even sleeping. We often stress our spine by carrying too much, twisting wrong, lifting and sitting improperly. This is not to mention the accidents we experience like slips, falls, work strains, as well as sport and exercise injuries. In addition, being overweight, having psychological stress and other health issues or diseases can cause back pain. The first place to start the healing process, is to receive a thorough Chiropractic spinal exam and posture evaluation.

Often the solution to lower back pain is to have better body biomechanics. It’s important to learn where the “weak links” are in our spine and to align and strengthen up those areas of vulnerability.
