If you're suffering from lower back pain, you're not alone. More than 80% of North Americans will at some time in their life suffer from the disabling confines of lower back pain. According to experts, lower back pain is the number one disability culprit in worker's compensation claims and accounts for more than $50 billion in expenses annually in the US due to medical care and lost production time. In addition, the latest research shows that most lower back problems which cause low back pain do not fully resolve without extensive treatment and proper rehabilitation, contrary to previous beliefs.
Low back pain has a variety of causes, including:
- Poor posture/gait
- Dysfunctional spinal movement
- Disc injury
- Muscle/ligament injury
- Prolonged sitting/lack of activity
At The Balanced Body Center, we offer a complete approach to reducing your pain, followed by postural strengthening to help prevent relapse and ensure future health. Our primary treatment for low back pain includes chiropractic adjusting techniques which balance the cervical and thoracic spine on the pelvis. Our doctors use the NUCCA upper cervical technique along with lower back adjustments performed on a drop-table mechanism that makes treatments completely comfortable and highly specific. Our office also provides additional ways to treat low back pain naturally, such as:
- Massage therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Physical therapy
- Cold laser therapy
- Vibration and ExMI magnetic stimulation
- Anti-inflammatory supplementation
Once the doctor evaluates the cause and severity of your condition, they will determine what approach will yield the quickest and best results. Our clinic emphasizes finding the root cause of your back pain and treating it at the source, rather than just masking the symptoms with temporary fixes. If you wish to avoid surgery, there really is no better option than chiropractic care.
