Minnesota Lower Back Pain Treatment
In the United States back pain is the second leading cause for physician visits and is second only to childbirth for hospitalizations. It is also the most prevalent chronic medical condition and the number one cause of long-term disability. Back pain, headache, arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders combine to cost employers $61 billion per year in lost productive time alone, according to a 2003 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Many people who seek chiropractic care have low-back pain. People also commonly seek chiropractic care for other kinds of musculoskeletal pain (e.g., neck, shoulder), headaches, and extremity (e.g., hand or foot) problems.
Stop Living With Back Pain!
Chiropractors practice under the consensus that there is a significant interrelationship between the spine and the nervous system. When the biomechanics of the spine are not aligned, the nervous system potentially may be affected and lead to pain.
Lower back pain treatment is probably one of the most common reasons that people seek out chiropractic care. There are a vast number of things that can cause lower back pain. In some cases, pain may start in another part of the body but the nervous system actually reveals the pain in your back.
There is almost no person who is immune from having some sort of lower back pain at some point in their life. Most often we see people who can trace their lower back pain to auto injuries or work injuries, poor lifting habits, poor conditioning, poor ergonomics or poor posture. In some cases, a onetime injury to the lower back may not lead to long term damage and can be cleared up with just a few treatments. It is the long term behaviors and unattended injuries that tend to require more attention and possibly longer treatment regimens.
