Lower Back Pain
Are you living a life full of lower back pain? Your pain can be caused by a number of things, but no matter the source, your pain can be debilitating and ruin your day. The pain can make doing the easiest activities seem impossible. Fortunately, there is an all-natural treatment option that can help to relieve your lower back pain without the use of harmful drugs.
What Can Cause Lower Back Pain?
The causes of lower back pain are not serious issues to be worried about. Some of the most common reasons for lower back pain include bulging discs, trauma caused by a fall or accident, or bone degeneration. Some other examples of trauma experienced might include lifting a heavy object incorrectly, stretching too much, or over exerting yourself directly after you have be inactive for a few days. When you are battling conditions that cause degeneration of the bones or muscles, bone spurs might appear and the discs in the spine will start to have problems. These discs act as cushions between the vertebrae and have centers that resemble a pulpy substance. When degeneration causes the discs to bulge, the center is pushed outwards and puts pressure on the nerves that surround the disc. If the disc within the lower back bulges into the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down into the feet, the pan is referred to as sciatica.
Although the body is adaptable and can compensate for the pain that you experience from these issues, the body does have a breaking point. When it can’t compensate for your issues any more, you experience pain. Using treatments such as pain relievers to reduce your pain, only the symptoms of your pain are addressed, and the source of the pain is untouched.
Traditional Treatments for Lower Back Pain
There is no one cure to relieve all lower back pain. Traditional treatments to relieve this pain most often use prescriptions and over the counter pain relievers to help reduce some of the pain. The thought behind this is if no pain is felt, then there isn’t really a problem. This, however, is very wrong. The feeling of being all-right when you are not can actually cause you to hurt your lower back even worse. Additionally, all pain relievers have potentially harmful side effects. Trying to increase the amount of exercise targeted at the lower back to help relieve pain doesn’t help at all. This method increases the amount of pain you feel and works already over exhausted muscles. The last treatment commonly used, surgery, is a permanent treatment that could involve removing or fusing bones. Many who have tried surgery as a treatment in the past have had to return for an additional surgery in a few short years following the procedure.
Chiropractic Care Could Be For You
The back, which houses the spine, is made up of several pieces that interlock and work together to provide different functions. When even one of these structures experiences issues, the whole body is affected. Some examples of this might include:
- The vertebrae can fall out of alignment and can cause friction between the bones or pinch the nerves that exists within the bones.
- Discs can become pinched or bulge –flattening on one side and becoming enlarged on the other –which is one of the more common types of back pain often resulting in surgery if not treated early enough.
- Degeneration of the bones from everyday use that happens during ageing can cause most of the issues that result in back pain. They are educated in how to treat sciatica pain and have been successful in reducing pain for numerous individuals in the past.
