Lower back pain can be a sign of underlying problems involving the nerves or muscles. The pain differs from person to person, from dull localised pain, to a stinging and burning pain that moves between the lower back and the legs.
With lower back pain, it’s difficult to perform everyday motions like sitting, standing, walking, turning around or bending at the waist. Many people miss work because of this. In more severe cases, people are left bedridden and incapacitated.
In all of these cases, however, you need to get diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and correct treatment usually achieves the most effective outcome for patients.
Pain in the lower back prevents maximum functionality. The lower back, or lumbar spine, supports the weight of the upper body, and allows for movements like bending, walking and twisting. This area of the body is also the point of attachment for muscles needed to support the spine and to flex and rotate the hips. Finally, it is also the nexus for many important nerves.
The pain can be due to many reasons, such as inflammation or direct injury to soft tissues like the discs, muscles and ligaments. However, the most common cause of back pain deals with repeated stress to the back joints and muscles. The stress comes from poor posture, bad lifting form, and other day-to-day activities. Irritation of nerves in the spine can occur, producing symptoms.
Taking short-term pain relievers is not enough. While it can relieve the symptoms, a tablet won’t reduce the damage that has built up. Pain medication will not stop the tension in your lower back from coming back, or correct the cause of your problem.
When the pain is related to neuromuscular disorders, going to a Chiropractor for treatment is one of the best complementary ways to find relief. It has been proven to be effective in relieving lower back pain and in dealing with the underlying problems.
Chiropractors are health care professionals dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. They reduce pain and improve mobility and functionality through the gentle adjustment of the spine.
It is a medical fact that structural derangements of the spine can significantly affect the nervous system. Chiropractors are able to help restore the spine’s structural integrity, which can reduce the harmful pressure on nerves and muscular connections.
This safe and efficient method of dealing with lower back pain can involve rehabilitative exercises as well.
