Did you know that 80% of people will experience some form of lower back pain at some stage in their lives?Lower back pain is a very common condition that affects the way we walk and sit. It can restrict common movements such as bending and stretching, making life difficult.
Often people will seek the help of medicines so they can cope with the pain, hoping it will go away. All medication does is mask the problem. Until your back is corrected, your back problem will persist.
The problem for some people who suffer lower back pain is that they have not suffered an injury. No sporting accidents, no car accidents; nothing that they can think of which might have caused their pain.
The reason so many of us experience lower back pain despite not having had an accident is that our way of life is affecting us. We sit for long periods at the computer or in a car, or we sleep on a mattress that is too soft. We lift heavy loads incorrectly – but it’s all in a day’s work.
These actions cause us to put stress on our joints and muscles, especially in our hips and lower back. So often it’s an accumulation of actions that causes us pain, and not necessarily an accident.
In many cases, the gentle manipulation of the spine can bring long term relief. Treatment outcomes can often benefit from specific lifestyle advice, corrective exercises and massage. If you are suffering from back pain, book an appointment and get back to getting the most out of your day.
