The back is acomplicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprainligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which canlead to back pain.

While sports injuriesor accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements can havepainful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, andpsychological stress can cause or complicate back pain.

Back pain can alsodirectly result from disease of the internal organs, such as kidney stones,kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss.

Back Pain Treatment

ChiropracticAdjustments are a safe and effective spine pain treatment. Some of theimmediate benefits include:

●    Reduced pain and discomfort

●    Decreased inflammation

●    Improved range of motion

●    Improved flexibility

●    Increased muscle tone and strength

In fact, after anextensive study of all available care for low back problems, the federal Agencyfor Health Care Policy and Research (now the Agency for Health Care Researchand Quality) recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the mostconservative care first. And it recommended spinal manipulation as the onlysafe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acutelow back problems in adults.

A well respected reviewof the evidence in the Annals of InternalMedicine pointed to chiropractic care as one of the major nonpharmacologictherapies considered effective for acute and chronic low back pain.

More recently, researchhas shown that there is strong evidence that spinal manipulation for back painis just as effective as a combination of medical care and exercise, andmoderate evidence that it is just as effective as prescription NSAIDS combinedwith exercise.

An article published inthe Journal of the American MedicalAssociation in 2013 also suggested chiropractic care as an option forpeople suffering from low back pain--and noted that surgery is usually notneeded and should only be tried if other therapies fail.
