Over time, we are often exposed to major traumatizing events such as car accidents, sports injuries and minor slips and falls. Micro traumas are also part of our daily life due to living a sedentary lifestyle, having poor posture or just sitting idle for hours. The combination of these major and micro traumas change the mechanics of our body. Unless we are constantly working on maintaining and improving the health or our spine, years of neglect will eventually lead to a weakened spine that slowly breaks down over time and causes lower back pain.

If you have back pain, especially pain that lasts longer than a few days, it’s important to see a chiropractor in order to prevent further damage to your spine and overall health.

We not only provide treatment for back pain, we can also help you identify potential areas in your life that are contributing to your lower back pain. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you find relief.

Causes of Lower Back Pain

Humans are vertebrates, which means that all of the messages from the brain must pass through the spinal cord in order to reach the organs and muscles in the body. Any misalignments of the spine, called subluxations, decrease the ability of the brain to control and regulate the body, and can lead to decreased function and eventual health problems. The lower back is made up of bones called vertebrae and intervertebral discs(cartilage) that provide shock absorption and protection to the spinal cord.  Proper alignment of the vertebrae and the health of the discs are crucial to maintaining a healthy low back.  The thickness of the discs creates the space for the nerves to exit the spine unhindered so they can control and regulate the body. Any changes to the structure of the low back or damage to the discs can lead to lower back pain along with a decrease in the function of the organs and tissues supplied by the lower back nerves.
