Almost 90% of all Americans will experience some sort of back pain within their lifetime and many of those are chronic sufferers. There is no need to suffer in silence. People are constantly looking for a back pain remedy.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused from a number of problems or be insidious in nature. Some conditions that cause back pain are sciatica, disc herniations, scoliosis, wedged vertebras, metastasis, autoimmune disorders, rib subluxations, sprain/strains, increased thoracic kyphosis or lumbar hyperlordosis, spondylolisthesis, piriformis syndrome, fractures, and many more. While many individuals have experienced the positive results of Chiropractic care, many more shy away from their treatments and reach out to their allopathic physicians for pain medication. Although the pain medication will eliminate the pain for an undetermined amount of time, it will not eliminate the cause of the underlying condition from which the pain surfaces.
Chiropractic will not only reduce or eliminate the patient’s pain, but correct the underlying condition of why the pain started in the first place. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ and body part in the human body. Chirorpactors will use static and kinetic palpation to find hypertonicity, restriction of individual segments, and decreased global range of motion in either the cervical, thoracic, lumbo-pelvic, or extremity. After determination of the involved area, the chiropractor will deliver a high velocity low amplitude thrust to the segment to correct the subluxation, or mis-alignment. This restores motion to the joint, decreases inflammation, and also decreases or eliminates the patient’s pain.
