Lower Back Pain

Do you suffer from back pain? You are not alone. It is estimated that 90% of the population has suffered from at least one episode of back pain. Only the common cold causes more absences from work.

Pain is your body’s warning system. It draws your attention to an injury and area of inflammation.

The causes of back pain vary. Some are obvious – for example, a fall, or moving a heavy couch. Other causes are not as obvious. The pain may have developed overnight, while sleeping; or sitting at the computer, or bending to lift a light object.

At the Back Care Clinic, we will perform an extensive examination to pinpoint the cause. Is the spine moving properly? Are the muscles too tight? Is the spine properly aligned? Does poor posture or poor habits contribute to the condition?

Our first goal is to help relieve the pain. But more important, our goal is to uncover any underlying weakness that will allow the condition to return. Why did it happen in the first place? Pain can become chronic, and can interfere with normal activities and affect more than your back. You may want to walk for a healthy heart, but back pain prevents it. You may worry about lifting your children or grandchildren. Or you may like to garden, but don’t think you can do it.

At the Back Care Clinic, we want to determine the cause of the back pain, free you of pain, and help you lead the lifestyle you want.
