There are many different circumstances that influence the development of lower back pain. Some of these circumstances are due to infections or genetic conditions, while others are brought on by the activities that you choose to participate in. Lower back pain can even be caused by such seemingly trivial things like incorrect posture or prolonged or repetitive activities, such as sitting at a desk all day, which put additional stress and strain on the muscles of your lower back. During the summertime months, when more outdoor activities are on the agenda, you can experience a sudden spike in lower back pain, due to the change in your normal routine combined with a body that isn’t quite ready for the new stress and strain. Participating in certain sports, such as tennis, baseball, cycling or softball can result in a back which is out of alignment, which in turn leads to, you guessed it– lower back pain.
When you experience lower back pain, there are a number of different ways that you can handle it. If you are searching for a way that will provide you with long-term relief from your lower back pain, without the use of medication or surgery, consider chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors use manipulations of the spine to help rid you of lower back pain. Essentially, we check the alignment of the bones in your back, correct anything that is out of place and put them back in their proper places in order to alleviate pain. Our ultimate goal is to get your body to a state where it can begin to heal itself.
