Eighty percent of Americans suffer from lower back pain.
The numbers of cases are continuing to increase and the costs are going up every year. When you factor in treatment costs and wages lost due to time out of work, the totals are staggering.
Most lower back pain is due to simple mechanical problems in the spine and pelvis. Chiropractors are experts at detecting these patterns of problems and correcting them. Using physical examinations, x-rays and trained and experienced hands, chiropractors not only can locate the cause of lower back pain, but also they can correct the problem safely and restore a person back to health. Treatments range from chiropractic adjustments to spinal decompression therapy.
What about surgery?
Many think surgery is the answer, but we disagree. Not only is back surgery dangerous, but also it can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars… and there are no guarantees as to outcome. In fact, studies have shown that back surgery is only effective 50 percent of the time. Once someone has spinal surgery, they are never quite the same. And if it doesn’t work, and there are serious complications, there is no going back to the way you were before.
Thousands of people use chiropractors every day to effectively deal with lower back pain and numerous studies have shown that chiropractic treatment remains one of the most effective approaches a sufferer can take to address their pain.
