Back pain is very common. 80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives – it is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work, and is a leading cause of disability worldwide.
Back pain can be painful, debilitating and persistent, and some people suffer repeated episodes. The symptoms of lower back pain can vary from person to person. It can also be associated with other symptoms, such as leg pain or sciatica. It may start following a specific incident, such as bending awkwardly or lifting a heavy weight. Or it can develop gradually over time, perhaps as a result of poor posture, an uncomfortable work position or repetitive strain or seemingly for no apparent reason which is so common.
Back pain can range from a muscle aching to a shooting, burning or stabbing sensation. In addition, the pain may radiate down your leg or worsen with bending, twisting, lifting, standing or walking.
Low back pain could happen due to many different reasons, it could be stress, strained muscles, ruptured disks, trigger points or inflamed joints. Surgery is rarely needed.
Chiropractic adjustments and Physiotherapy treatment are both very effective for treating low back pain. Each individual's case is different and requires a thorough evaluation before a course of care can be recommended.
