Lower Back Pain Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
Lower back pain is among the most common health complaints of people in the United States and around the world. It is also among the costliest to individuals and the economy, as it is the number one cause of both short-term and long-term disability in America. Millions of Americans suffer from lower back pain each year.
Lower back pain can have a large impact on an individual’s overall level of activity and quality of life. This, perhaps even more so than the pain itself, is what drives individuals to seek lower back pain treatment.
Causes of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain occurs for a number of reasons. Oftentimes, it is associated with a long-term repetitive stress injury. This may occur in the workplace, such as with package handlers who lift heavy boxes all day or with nurses who lift, turn, and roll patients.
Less frequently, lower back pain is caused by a one-time athletic or workplace injury. Oftentimes when you hear someone say they “pulled their back,” this is the phenomenon to which they are referring.
Regardless of what is causing the injury, virtually all pain to the lower back is caused by injury, illness, irritation, or inflammation of the muscles and bones of the lower back or the nerves that supply this area of the body.
All back pain should be taken seriously. If you experience this, it is important to seek lower back pain treatment as soon as possible.
How to Treat Lower Back Pain
Chiropractic care is among the most powerful tools that one can use to treat lower back pain. It involves the manipulation of the bones and muscles of the spine to bring them back into proper alignment and reduce pain associated with misalignment.
Chiropractic care can be combined with physical therapy, acupuncture, and other therapeutic modalities as well.
