Lower back pain is one of the most common conditions people tend to suffer. At least four out of five adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives. The causes of low back pain vary from poor lifting techniques or incorrect carrying of heavy weights, poor posture, stress, pregnancy and general wear and tear of the physical being.
The body is supported by the spine, which carries our spinal cord and nervous system. Nerves branch off the spinal cord between the vertebrae. Therefore, injury may not only lead to local inflammation and pain, but also to irritation of the spinal nerves causing pain elsewhere in the body.
A common myth is that acute low back pain is caused by a 'slipped disc'. Discs do not slip - they can tear and bulge and sometimes this can cause leg pain, a condition commonly called sciatica.
Acute and chronic lower back pain responds well to chiropractic treatment.
