Around 80% of us will suffer with Low Back Pain at some point in our lives. It is one of the leading causes of disability. Low back pain can be caused by a number of things, accidents and falls, posture, stress, inflammatory conditions or other diseases.
Low Back Pain can be described as aching, dull, burning, sharp, stiff and stabbing. It can vary in intensity from very mild to severe. It may only effect you with certain activities or it may be there all the time. Some times it can spread to other areas, up the back, down the legs, into the buttocks and even into the groin at times. Some low back pain starts suddenly and other times it develops slowly over time.
Low back pain can be agonizing, effecting your sleep, stopping you from working, socializing or playing sports, even walking can sometime be compromised!
Firstly it’s important to identify what is causing the low back pain. The anatomy of the low back is quite complicated and pain can be produced from muscles, ligaments, joints and their capsules, discs, nerves, blood vessels or even the hip. All these tissues may be pulled, strained, effected by wear and tear or damaged. It is the Chiropractors job to find where the pain is coming from so that the correct treatment can commence.
