Lower Back Pain
Did you know…?
According to the Center for Disability Research at the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety, patients with work-related low back pain treated solely by a physical therapist were: Twice as likely to become disabled as those under chiropractic care. And those treated solely by a standard physician (MD) were: 60% more likely to become disabled than those under chiropractic care. (J Occupat Enviro Med 2011(Apr) 53(4): 2089910352
Chiropractic adjustments at Essential Life Chiropractic can help to alleviate spinal pressure on the low back caused by either tight muscles from pelvic rotation, spinal misalignment, and disc herniation.
There are two proven ways to evaluate for misalignment of the bones in the spine that cause low back pain:
Addressing the Root of the Problem
- Your head is visibly tilted, shifted or rotated in one direction.
- Your head juts out in front of your chest and shoulders.
- One shoulder is higher than the other, turned in one direction, or your whole upper body is shifted to one side.
- One hip is higher than the other, turned in one direction, or shifted to one side.
If any of these are the case, chiropractic care can help decrease your lower back pain.
