According to research compiled by the Mayo Clinic, as many as 80% of all Americans will experience lower back pain at least once. Very often, back pain causes absences from work or school and an inability to enjoy daily life.
You can suffer from back pain at any age, but researchers find that back pain is most common among adults between the ages of 35 and 55. Back pain can result from an injury or illness and can become a chronic condition that worsens over many years.
Maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is critical to your overall health and wellness. Living with significant back pain can impede your ability to stay fit, which can further lead to numerous other health issues.
Many people who live with chronic back pain turn to prescription medications for pain relief. That can lead to harmful side effects, including problems with addiction. That's why so many people turn to chiropractic care in search of a natural treatment plan.
Several factors cause back pain, some that are in your control and others that are not. Here are some common causes of back pain:
The most common cause of back pain is strained muscles and ligaments. Back strain can result from improper lifting, sports injuries, auto accidents, or even abrupt movements.
Back pain can originate from structural issues. A ruptured or bulging disc, arthritis, sciatica, or abnormal curvature of your spine can all lead to pain and discomfort.
Back pain can also result from less common sources, including shingles, sleep disorders, infections of the spine, and cancer.
Many types of spinal pains originate from the misalignment of your body's musculoskeletal structure. It’s necessary to restore proper alignment and mobility to relieve pain.
Your nervous system is a complex communication powerhouse that transmits sensory data between your body and brain. Misaligned vertebrae or muscle interference can interrupt those signals, a condition known as “vertebral subluxation.”
Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to correct vertebral subluxations and restore proper range of motion. This procedure is what is often referred to as "back cracking" and involves a precisely targeted application of force.
