Welcome to Health-1st Low Back Pain Page. We trust that you will find our Low Back Pain Page useful in making your decision in choosing our office.
Low back pain is a leading cause of pain and disability in the U.S., affecting more than 30 million Americans at any point in time, and causing symptoms in more than half of all working men and women every year. Because the low back is subjected to so many different types of stresses and strains throughout the day – even when we’re simply sitting or standing – finding relief for painful symptoms requires a whole-body approach that’s focused on rebalancing the body so those stresses and strains are properly redistributed.
Although taking pain relievers and even muscle relaxers can help relieve some symptoms, over time these medications can become addictive and dangerous, even interfering with the body’s ability to heal itself. At Health 1st, we understand the symptoms of low back pain and the impact they can have on your life. We offer skilled treatment based on each patient’s unique needs for real, long-term relief and improved health.
What causes low back pain?
Low back pain can have many causes, including falls and other accidents, poor posture, bad ergonomics at work, school or home, overuse injuries or repetitive motions, heavy lifting – the list goes on. The low back takes the brunt of heavy loads, and it also plays a major role in stabilizing the body during motion and even while at rest. That means it’s subjected to strains and stresses all day long. Over time, these forces can pull the lower spine out of alignment, resulting in irritation and inflammation that can press on nerves and cause widespread pain and other symptoms that often don’t respond to medication.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic works to relieve low back pain by realigning the spine so painful nerve impingements and pressures are eliminated, and healthy circulation and nervous system function are restored. Plus, by adjusting the spine, harmful toxins that can increase irritation and inflammation are flushed away naturally, so you feel better without the need for potentially addictive medications or invasive surgery.
