Low Back Pain Disorders

How did I get back pain?

Maybe you are in one position for too long it shows up in places you don’t think of like sitting at a desk, standing at a workstation, or even driving to work. The result of overusing your body in an otherwise normal way can be a pain much like any other strain.

Or maybe there is a better way to move when you do the things you do leaning forward to vacuum, shovel or rake increases the work on the low back (in physics that’s called a long lever), while twisting can increase the strain on your discs. Pain can be a warning sign of a more serious injury.Combined, mechanical related causes may account for more than 80% of back pan cases.

What can I expect with back pain?

As the name suggests, many people expect pain in the low back as their biggest complaint. It can show up anywhere from the bottom of the ribcage to the buttocks, or even as hip pain. In some people the pain is more dominant in their leg than their back – often nicknamed sciatica.

For some people it’s disabling, while for others its a distraction. It can be constant, or it can come-and-go. For some people, it’s worse when they sit or bend (like standing at a sink to wash dishes or brush teeth). For others its worse when they walk, get out of chair or out of their car, stand holding their child, or simply just stand.

Whether you are seeking back pain treatment, hip pain treatment, or sciatica treatment, if you experience low back pain for more than just a few days consult a chiropractor for an assessment. A careful evaluation from your healthcare provider will help determine if you can be helped with chiropractic care.
