Back Pain

One of the most common problems facing people today is back pain.  This problem can range from being an annoyance to a debilitating health issue. 


Back Pain Facts:

  • Back pain is a problem for about 50% of the population at some point
  • It is one of the most common reason for emergency room visits
  • Back pain is also one of the most expensive health care issues
  • Many patients end up with avoidable back surgeries


The Common Cause of Back Pain

For the majority of people, back pain results from misalignments in the spine.  Small changes in the position of the spine can lead to swelling and pressure on the nerves exiting the spinal column.  This not only causes pain, but can lead to dysfunction in the body.


Small misalignments in the spine are generally known as subluxations.  Subluxations are thought to lead to arthritis and degeneration in the spine.  This degeneration can lead to loss of height as the discs in the spine break down, pain, and many other symptomatic issues.


It’s common for patients to put off treatment.  They hope that the problem will take care of itself, but the reality is that these issues rarely correct themselves.  The pain may come and go, but the core problem remains.  The longer it sits there the more damage it can cause.
