LOW BACK PAIN
GONSTEAD CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT FOR LOW BACK PAIN RELIEF IN ARVADA, CO.
Common Causes of Low Back Pain
Low back pain is experienced by 80 percent of people at some point in their lifetime. Many patients come in and remember an event where they were lifting a heavy object and felt something give in their lower back. Other patients experience a low back injury playing sports such as hockey, basketball, and gymnastics. Some patients do not remember how their low back pain injury occurred. Usually this is due to an older injury as a child where they fell from a high place, or some other childhood event that has been forgotten. Other times patients may have injured it due to wear and tear from a job where lifting was required. Sometimes the injuries occur due to a patient having a shorter leg on one side than the other. It is important to take x-rays to diagnose low back pain and where the low back pain is coming from. All Gonstead Chiropractors use x-rays to pinpoint certain areas of the spine and then adjust to strengthen that area of the spine and get the pressure off the nerves that are causing the lower back pain.
