Understanding lower back pain
Lower back pain, also called lumbar spine pain, is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Lower back pain is the most common reason for missed work and the second most common reason for a doctor’s visit. Lower back pain can affect anyone. The lower back is made up of five moveable vertebra and numerous muscle groups. Research shows chiropractic adjustments are a safe and reliable treatment for the lower back pain. Lower back pain can come from the intervertebral joints, facets, disc, ligaments, muscles and nerve roots. Lower back pain can stay at the lower back or travel downward into the buttock, legs, and feet. It can affect one or both legs. Shooting, sharp, tingling and numbness down the legs can accompany more serious lower back pain.
