When your lower back aches, throbs, or convulses, it’s tempting to reach for over-the-counter or doctor-prescribed painkillers. While these medications mask your symptoms and provide relief in the short-term, they only make matters worse as your condition progresses. For long-term, natural lower back pain treatment, consider, instead, the many benefits of chiropractic care.
Why Choose Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain Treatment
Whether due to poor posture or a serious injury, chiropractic care effectively helps alleviate pain stemming from a variety of causes. A misaligned spine quickly leads to discomfort, mobility impairment, or nerve dysfunction. Even though the pain is localized in the lower back, it sometimes occurs due to issues in another part of the spine.
Through small, measured manipulations of the area, chiropractors gradually restore the spine to its optimal positioning. Each gentle movement helps realign it, which relieves tension and pain in the joints, muscles, and tissues.
In a recent study, the majority of those receiving spinal manipulation treatment reported reduced pain afterward. Over time, research suggests chiropractic treatment may also lead to improved mobility. A 2008 study found spinal manipulation is most effective when combined with exercise instruction. Meanwhile, a 2009 study found spinal manipulation to be particularly effective for treating chronic lower back pain, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NIH).
Addresses the Root Cause
Rather than simply masking the issue, chiropractic care addresses the root of the problem and helps the body heal. For that reason, it also prevents re-injury or back pain down the road. As a non-invasive, low-risk procedure, most people with back pain are excellent candidates for chiropractic treatment.
