Back Pain Got you Down?
Back pain affects millions of people each year and can be brought on by something as simple as getting out of bed. Lower back pain becomes more common as the discs separating the vertebrae lose fluid and flexibility, which decreases the cushioning separating the vertebrae.
This feeling is often confused with aging! But the truth is it is probably from pain that has resulted from years of living with a body that is out of alignment. It might be a pinched nerve that’s been flaring up more and more. Many times you have lived with this pain for YEARS and now it has turned into a real problem keeping you from doing the activities that you enjoy for yourself and your family.
And the other confusing part about back pain, it might not be from your back! It could be from a low-grade spasm or pelvis torque and tension. It could be an imbalance of hips, adhesions in leg muscles, pinched nerves, or many other reasons that you would never equate to the pain you feel in your back.

Here are a few excerpts from studies about Chiropractic Care for Back Pain:
- “Patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians. Satisfaction scores were higher for chiropractic patients. A higher proportion of chiropractic patients (56 percent vs. 13 percent) reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, whereas nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse.” Nyiendo et al (2000), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
- “Reduced odds of surgery were observed for…those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor.” – Keeney et al (2012), Spine
- “Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients. Results from observational studies suggested that back pain patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than with medical care.” — Hertzman-Miller et al (2002), American Journal of Public Health
