According to health experts, lower back pain is a common problem that will affect up to 80 percent of Americans at some time during their lives. Individuals who suddenly find themselves suffering from this affliction often what lower back pain is and wonder if it is a sign of more serious spinal problems.
At Comprehensive Chiropractic & Wellness, we can provide an accurate analysis of your back pain and individualized chiropractic care to reduce pain and improve function.
The lower back is composed of a series of bones in the “lumbar” region of the spine. Donut-shaped, flexible discs help to cushion these bones. In addition, this area contains muscles, ligaments, tendons and a number of nerves that connect to the lower part of the body. So, the area can be affected by bone injury, soft tissue injury or nerve compression. When an injury or illness occurs, pain, numbness, tingling and other symptoms can result.
People often experience strains of the back from work-related tasks or recreational activities. Moving is a very common way to experience a back sprain. Home remodeling tasks and landscaping are other ways people cause a back injury. But lower back problems can also result from herniated discs that cushion the spinal bones and from impingement of the nerves that travel through the lower back. Injuries that involve the lower spine and accidents can cause chronic pain in the back. Even osteoarthritis the progressive deterioration that often comes with age can cause lower back problems.
Your Chicago chiropractor can offer a number of chiropractic treatments to reduce lower back pain and improve your ability to move easily. Manual adjustment helps to realign the bones of the spine into their natural position for more efficient movement.

We can also provide acupuncture, an ancient Asian method of healing that uses fine needles, inserted into specific points in the body, for effective pain relief without drugs.
