While extremely common, back pain is not normal. Not only is it not a natural part of living or aging, it is highly treatable. Low back pain affects 85% of adults at some time in their lives. Many of those people will turn to medication or even surgery. However, the body is inherently cooperative and chiropractic care is uniquely poised to offer relief from back pain. Many people turn to over the counter painkillers or ask their doctor for a prescription, but research shows that chiropractic care is one of the safest and most effective solutions for back pain.

Symptoms Associated with a Back Condition

Depending on the injury and location, back pain can present in a multitude of ways in the body, not always in the back. The low back is exceptionally susceptible to injury and pain due to the complex structure of the spine. Pain in the low back often presents with a sharp, pinching pain upon movement.

Nerves in the low back supply sensation and power the muscles in the pelvis, legs, and feet.

But truly, the back is a highly functioning structure and most acute low back pain results from injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints, or discs. The body also reacts to injury by initiating an inflammatory healing response. While inflammation sounds minor, it can cause severe pain.
