Do You Have Back Pain?

It is very unfortunate that hundreds, if not thousands, of people in Clive suffer on a daily basis due to back pain. What is discouraging about this fact? Majority of those that are suffering have never even thought about chiropractic as a way to resolve their pain.  A lot of people don’t know what chiropractic has to offer let alone why they should see a doctor of chiropractic. We hope this information from Full Circle Wellness Center in Clive will be helpful.

Facts about Back Pain:

  • Over half of all Americans admit to experience some sort of back pain every year.
  • Doctors in emergency rooms state that low back pain is the most common complaint they hear every year.
  • Low back pain is one of the highest pain disabilities in the US.
  • Cancer is the only health care cost above low back pain.
  • 8 out of 10 people are going to experience low back pain throughout their life.
  • Back surgeries are often avoidable.

Low Back Pain Causes

There are several different causes of low back pain but the most common are obesity, arthritis, blood clots and kidney stones. Although of these conditions lead to back pain, none of them are the most common. The number one cause of back pain is a subluxation.  A subluxation is a misalignment of spinal vertebrae which may lead to nerve and/or disc impingement.

Doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to find subluxations and remove them.  By removing a subluxation, the pressure that is being put on the nerves and/or discs can be removed thus removing the pain. This also restores proper nerve function in the body.

It is very likely that the pain will get worse before it gets better if left uncared for. It is very disheartening but very common to have new patients come to use after waiting for so long that their problems are permanent. Much like a cavity, a subluxation will cause pain to spread and create more problems along the way. The difference is that the spine is more important to care for. Your spine protects your spinal cord which is the communicator between your brain and the rest of your body. The brain and spinal cord make up the most valuable system in the entire body, the nervous system.
