Should You Try Chiropractic Low Back Pain Treatment in Edmonton?
Do you suffer from chronic low back pain?
Global News recently reported that nearly 40% of people who stayed home from work did so because of back pain.
The article explained that even though so many Canadians experience back pain, the condition isn’t taken very seriously. That reality is unfortunate; however, the good news is that seeking low back pain treatment from an Edmonton chiropractor can significantly reduce pain and long-term damage.
What Causes Back Pain? How Can Chiropractic Low Back Pain Treatment Help?
Back pain is caused by several issues, including:
- Muscle strain
- Spinal/skeletal misalignment
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Pinched nerves
- Muscle spasms
- Degenerative disc disease
- Various joint dysfunctions
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
- Compression fracture (a fracture caused by a bone caving in on itself, typical of people with osteoporosis)
Low Back Pain Treatment Options in Edmonton
Thankfully your Edmonton can provide a safe, effective low back pain treatment – spinal adjustments.
When the spine is out of alignment – from wear and tear, repetitive motion, or trauma – you can end up with back pain. Misalignment can lead to pinched nerves, muscle spasms, and muscle strain. And it can make many of the causes of back pain listed above even worse.
Regular spinal adjustments ease the pain and strain, providing relief and reducing your risk of long-term damage, including loss of flexibility and range of motion. In fact, a 2018 study reviewed research from 1993-2013 and found that people who received chiropractic low back pain treatment reported:
- Less pain intensity
- Improved function
- Less need for pain medication
