Chiropractic adjustments as a treatment for back pain may help to normalize spinal function and reduce painful symptoms without drugs or surgery.
Pain of any kind is a sign that something is wrong. Some people silence the pain with drugs – but that can be the equivalent of removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector. In other words, silencing the painful alarm may cause us to overlook the true cause of our pain. In some instances, treating the pain instead of the cause may allow the spine to degenerate to a level that chiropractic treatment and even medication may no longer be able to help.
Many of the spine’s pain-sensing nerves are located in the joints at the back of each spinal bone, which help to control how the bone moves. The normally smooth surfaces on which these joints glide may become rough, irritated and inflamed.
Lower back pain can be attributed to many factors – including bad posture and lifting techniques, over-exertion, trauma, and inherited spinal abnormalities. Another cause may be a bulging disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or a nearby nerve root. The result is often numbness, tingling, or pain down the leg.
The chiropractic approach to lower back pain treatment is to help restore a more normal motion and position of the affected spinal bones through specific chiropractic adjustments. The simplicity and success of this approach has been documented in numerous research projects and has helped many patients avoid risky surgery. Of course, individual results vary which is why a history and examination are important.
