The Prevalence of Lower Back Pain

The Prevalence of Lower Back Pain

To the sufferers of lower back pain, know this: you are not alone. Close to twelve million Americans reported having experienced acute lower back pain for an extended period of time. This is becoming an incredibly severe issue, particularly in the elderly. For many fifty and sixty year olds, their capacity to move and be active has diminished significantly, and the primary reason for that is, you guessed it, back pain. When the back goes, so does the body. That is why our chiropractors at Chiropractic Clinic Houston stress the important of back pain prevention. Fortunately, our chiropractors have developed a logically consistent, empirically verifiable workout protocol to help obviate back pain problems.

Ironically, a very common cause of back pain is stress. When you are stressed, your body does not operate at its best. The body tightens up; it’s no longer loose and nimble. And this stiffness, coupled with a jerky movement that puts stress on the back, can cause severe back pain. Whether you are raising kids, working long, arduous hours at a corporate job, or just doing a lot of stuff around the house, be careful for your back – make sure you are not super stressed, for if you are, there may be a big time problem looming just around the corner. No matter your age, back pain can significantly diminish the quality of your life. This may seem obvious, but for many youngsters, who feel invincible, the thought of being bridled by a back injury is almost unfathomable. But believe it or not, many young teens and twenty year olds need chiropractic care as well.

Because prevention is better than cure, we highly recommend that you make sure to do these three things: limit the stress in your life, refuse to pick up very heavy objects, particularly if you are not in shape, and stay active. If you follow these three chiropractic rules, you are more likely to obviate lower back pain. Also, another thing that ends up causing severe back pain is a sagging mattress. Sleeping on an old, decrepit mattress can indeed cause one’s back to give out. The harder the mattress, the better – so keep that in mind the next time you are shopping for one.

If you are one of those twelve million Americans who is experiencing mild to severe back pain, it is time to see a chiropractor. Keep in mind, though, that curing back pain takes a lot of time and effort. It is not for the lazy, or the procrastinators, or the people who are impatient. You’ve got to come in, each and every day, and work hard, with the mindset that things will change, that things will improve and that this back pain will, one day, go away. If you are up for the task, then our chiropractors think that we can help you get back to optimal health. We’d love to work with you.
