Chiropractic for Low Back Pain
How can a routine Chiropractic care help relieve and manage my low back pain?
What is Low Back Pain?
Your low back is designed perfectly to provide strength, support and flexibility to your entire upper body, making it therefore susceptible to injuries and very sensitive to pain. Low back pain can be caused by many numbers of sources, and can vary in severity, from annoying niggling pain to debilitating. In 2017-2018, National Health estimated 4.0 million Australians suffered from back pain.
How can Chiropractic care help my low back pain?
Chiropractic care can be a great way to relieve pain and manage your low back discomfort by reducing the swelling in the affected joints which often is a common cause of pain. Routine Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to managing low back pain which is commonly managed otherwise by the use of prescription medication and over-the-counter pain medications.
A certified Chiropractor will deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy called an Adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce the restriction and misalignment in the injured joints, which helps your body to heal by reducing inflammation and improving function in both the affected joints and nervous system.
Health benefits of adjustments for patients with low back pain include:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Reduced inflammation in the injured joints
- Improved range of motion
- Increased muscle tone and strength
