According to the American Chiropractic Associations, “Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experiences back pain at some point in their life.”*
Back pain can be a direct result of a traumatic event, like a car accident or a sports injury, but it can also happen after doing something as simple as bending over to tie your shoe. If you have found yourself experiencing acute or chronic low back pain, that just does not seem to be resolving itself on its own, visiting a chiropractor is going to be a great first step. Many patients have found that shortly after starting chiropractic care, they begin to feel improvement in their pain levels. The chiropractic approach to treating back pain is not only to treat the pain itself, but to identify the cause of the pain and treat it directly.
Treatments involves regaining motion in the spine through spinal manipulation, physiotherapy for the muscles and ligaments, as well as rehabilitative exercise that help to strengthen all the surrounding structures which will ensure a long-term solution to the condition by preventing its recurrence
