Back pain is the number one cause of disability in people aged 18 - 46, and the second leading cause of missed workdays. Back pain is generally due to poor posture and lifting techniques, failure to seek medical care following an accident, failure to receive adequate treatment for back injuries, and decreased physical activity. Chiropractic care focuses on the cause of your problem and does not rely on medication for short-term relief of symptoms.
Recent studies show that at any given time more than 10% of Americans are suffering from neck pain. The neck is comprised of many delicate and pain sensitive structures, and is frequently exposed to abuse and stress that may result in neck pain. Some common factors involved in neck pain are incomplete recovery from past injuries, poor posture, and prolonged sitting. Regular spinal alignments generally help to prevent neck pain due to these sources.
Lower Back Pain
More than 80% of Americans report suffering from lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain is the leading disability reason stated in workers' compensation claims. When left untreated, lower back pain can severely restrict mobility. Most lower back problems, which result in lower back pain, require proper treatment in order to achieve complete rehabilitation.
