Lower Back Pain Q & A

How common is lower back pain?

According to the American Chiropractic Association, lower back pain affects as many as 31 million people in the United States. Experts also estimate that 80% of people deal with back pain at some point during their lives.

Patients with back pain often experience a diminished quality of life because of their pain. They may be unable to participate in fun activities, and they may also deal with depression. In some cases, low back pain can be so disabling that it prevents the patient from going to work.

What causes lower back pain?

Lower back pain develops for many different reasons. In some cases, patients experience back pain because of an acute injury, such as a sprain or strain. In other cases, back pain is related to a gradual breakdown of the intervertebral discs or herniated discs in the low back. In addition, obesity, poor posture, and emotional stress all make back pain worse.

Some chronic conditions may lead to back pain as well. Examples of conditions that contribute to pain in the low back include arthritis and osteoporosis.

What treatments are available?

When patients go to their primary doctor for low back pain, they may receive medications to control the pain, or the doctor may even suggest more invasive treatments. However, many cases of back pain respond well to chiropractic care. At Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center, doctors treat back pain with a combination of spinal manipulation, massage therapy, and physical therapy. The goal of treatment isn't only to alleviate the patient’s pain, but also to improve the stability of the patient’s low back so that fewer problems develop in the future.
