As Chiropractors – one of the most common presentations we see in our clinics is Chronic Lumbar Back Pain. According to the global burden of disease, injury and risk factor study of 2013 – low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Most cases from the study were found to be of mechanical origin – meaning they were not caused by a serious underlying condition such as infection or fractures.
Back pain costs us time away from our roles in the work place – but they also cost money. Back or spine pain or problems are the second most common reason for a visit to the doctor in the United States, it is estimated that Americans spend at least $50Billion a year just on back pain.
Causes of low back pain vary – and every patient that walks into our office is different and their case is handled on an individual basis. Many causes of back pain can be traumatic in origin, from an accident or an injury, while others may be due to bad habits such as poor posture or pain from misalignment. When we talk to patients about correct and proper posture and alignment, we aim to get the body to be as symmetrical and balanced as possible.
