chiropractors can help with back pain

Low back pain is one of the most common physical ailments that people suffer from. In fact, the national institute of health estimates 80% of people will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. So why is it so common? Anatomically, the low back area is the root of the entire spinal column and supports the entire frame of the middle and upper body. This means the low back has a tremendous responsibility and can easily be overburdened and strained from other areas of stress on the body. Commonly lower back pain can result from over lifting or improper lifting of heavy things and twisting and turning suddenly.

Our lifestyles are one of the biggest factors for causing low back pain, such as being sedentary or standing in one position for too long. Most people don't get enough exercise and sit at work and in the car over 8 to 10 hours a day! As a result, the back gets stiff. Pain, tightness and injury ensue from there.

Chinese Medicine also talks about low back pain occurring from the loss of vitality. The low back area around L2 is said to be the gate of vitality for the entire body, and if someone has low energy, diminshed drive or willpower in their life and low stamina, they will commonly also have low back pain. This a natural part of aging, but it can and should be prevented, improved or at the least prevented from getting worse. The low back is the root which supports the body, therefore so any emotional issues with not feeling supported, or those related to our family or career (roots) may also result in lower back pain.

Treatment of lower back pain with Chinese Medicine depends on a few factors. Is the pain acute or chronic? What is the location of the pain? is it on the spine, near the spine or even further lateral or some combination of those? Finally what is the type of pain? Acupuncture and herbal medicine are effective at helping all forms of back pain, but the needles will be placed in specific areas matching the quality, location and acute/chronic nature. If the pain is sharp or stabbing, cupping and gua sha will be very effective as well. Rather, If the pain is dull and aches, moxabustion will be particularly beneficial!
