Back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. Experts estimate that as many as 8 out of 10 Americans will experience a back problem at some point in their life.
Normal wear and tear, trauma, disease, overexertion at play or work (especially lifting, pushing, pulling, and reaching for things improperly), and poor standing and sitting posture result in both immediate and long-term back problems. The problems can lead to a condition known as subluxation, which is a functional and/or structural change in a joint, which can interfere with nerve transmission, disturb other organ systems and undermine general health. Spinal subluxations may have symptoms localized in some part of the back or may radiate down to the buttocks, thighs and legs and are successfully treated with chiropractic.
Our Lake Mary chiropractors draw upon a wealth of knowledge and experience with treating and preventing back pain and back injuries. Soothing and pain-reducing spinal adjustments have been developed over the last century, during which chiropractors have practiced, improved and refined their techniques. The goal is not only treat the pain, but try to keep patients engaging in their normal activities rather than resting immobile in bed, which can actually cause further debilitation. Chiropractors do not rely on surgery or medication that can be both dangerous and needlessly costly for patients.
