Debilitating Pain

If you’ve ever witnessed someone suffering from the agony of extreme lower back pain, or if you yourself have experienced it, you know how debilitating it can be. It hurts to lean over, to straighten up, to get in and out of bed, or in and out of the car – or even rising from a chair. You are constantly grabbing at your lower back to somehow lessen the pain or to stop the spasms.

Lower Back PainThe low back, (also called the lumbar region) serves several important functions for your body, including structural support, movement, and protection of certain body tissues. When a person is in a standing position, the lower back holds most of the weight of the body. The lower back is involved when we bend, extend, or rotate at the waist. This explains why pain in the lower back limits a number of normal activities.

Interacting Problems

Causes of lower back pain usually stem from a combination of conditions, such as overuse, muscle strain, or an injury to the muscles, ligaments and discs that support the spine. One problem can lead to another. For instance, muscle strain may lead to an imbalance in the spinal structure. This then causes tension (and increased wear and tear) on the muscles, ligaments, bones and discs. Now this area is even more susceptible to injuries.

Lower back pain is categorized as either acute (a recent occurrence) or chronic (the patient has suffered the pain for an extended time). This type of strain usually happens to people in their forties or older. However, certain injuries to the lower back can happen at any age.

Barring a traumatic injury, back pain does not occur overnight. It is usually the result of years or months of a condition that has been neglected. Eventually the lower back gives way and the pain sets in.

Spinal Adjustments

As with many painful conditions, most people begin their own treatment by taking pain medication. While this may provide temporary relief, it ignores the root cause, therefore, the problem is sure to reoccur, and perhaps with more severity.

Seeking the services of a chiropractor is an effective way to treat that root cause. Chiropractic treatment includes, among other things, a spinal adjustment. This adjustment is designed to return motion to an abnormally locked (fixated) spinal joint that is in some way causing pain and discomfort.

Invasive treatment such as surgery should always be a last resort. A visit to your San Diego Chiropractor will save you time and money. Studies have shown that patients with chronic pain derived extended relief from chiropractic treatments. It has also been revealed that acute care patients who sought out a chiropractor enjoyed healthier physical outcomes than acute care patients of medical doctors.

A wholistic approach to health and pain relief means the avoidance of prescription drugs and their many side effects. Chiropractic treatment can mean pain-free health for you today and in the months and years to come.

About five months ago I began to experience pain, discomfort, and numbness and tingling throughout my neck, arm and fingers. I thought it was a pinched nerve and thought it would pass.That of course ended up not being the case. I was recommended to Dr. Curda from a friend and through xray, was made aware of the actual problem. Digenerative disc disease( osteo arthritis). Through his recommended treatment plan, all of my ailments have diminished immensely. Where the adjustments will not change the fact that I have this condition,they have definitely made life for me, comfortable again. Thank you Dr. Curda!!!
