The majority of back pain patients have not experienced any trauma, accidents, or major injuries prior to the onset of their problem. The cause of most back pain is the cumulative affect of improper sitting posture, poor work habits, incorrect lifting, lack of proper exercise, and other lifestyle-related factors. All these factors cause stress and imbalances of the spine... and eventually pain. These stresses cause something called a "Subluxation" which causes a sympathetic (chronic stress) response. When individuals nervous systems are sympathetically activated due to stress, their bodies no longer heal as they were designed to. In order to 'reset' the nervous system, you need to get adjusted by your local Elkhorn, WI and Walworth County chiropractor.
Now back to back pain... When these stresses (as mentioned before) cause imbalances in the spine, it leads to instability. This is why people often injure their back by just bending over to pick up a piece of paper. The spine was already compromised and just the simple act of bending was/is enough to set off the problem. When this occurs, the surrounding back muscles go into spasm to protect the stressed or injured tissues of the back. In the US, low back pain is one of the most common conditions and one of the leading causes of physician visits. In fact, at least four out of five adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Thirty-one million Americans have low back pain at any given time. One half of all working Americans admit having back symptoms each year. One third of all Americans over the age of 18 had a back problem in the past five years severe enough for them to seek professional help. And the cost of this care is estimated to be a staggering $50 billion yearly...and that's just for the more easily identified costs.
Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned and 'stuck' vertebrae and can remove pressure/stress placed on the nerve endings that line the surface of the joint and course through the space between the joints, reducing pain and improving flexibility and function. Isn't time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family?
