Realities of Back Pain

Back Pain TreatmentIf you have ever felt as if someone just had batting practice on your back, then you are a part of the back pain group. According to the American Chiropractic Association, “70 to 85 percent of all people have back pain at some time in their life.” Hence, everyone of us will be indirectly or directly affected by back pain; therefore back pain is impartial and does not discriminate. When you do feel that back pain then you may also find out very quickly how expensive treatment can be for it.

Back problems can affect more than a dent in your wallet and frequent time lost from work. The pain can decrease your ability to enjoy or perform in normal activities; or worse- profound disability. Those already suffering with back pain will be the first to tell you how it has caused issues with their everyday life, and how back pain has stopped them from accomplishing many goals that they desire to achieve. Even the little things such as completing household chores can be difficult to do for someone with severe back problems. The pain can be that excruciating, and for that reason many invest in back pain treatment with chiropractic.

Back problems can arise through any moment in life:

  • during a woman’s pregnancy, weight increasing downward and forward pulls and can cause stress on the lower back.
  • at birth for a newborn, if the birth is a violent and traumatic experience for the baby’s body.
  • at early childhood, as the child begins to develop and starts raising their head.
  • during adolescence, changes in the body can cause subluxations and developmental problems.
  • in athletics, sports can cause trauma and place stress on the back.
  • in an injury or auto accident that affects the spine, back pain can lead to metabolic changes.
  • as we age, we can experience joint stiffness and weakening of the bones.
  • and/or from chronic disorders like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, which can affect joints throughout the body, including the spine.

The reality is, we are all susceptible to back pain and back problems; therefore we are all at risk.
