Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain:  More than 80% of the population suffers from lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most cases of lower back pain can be linked to the most common causes, which are muscle strain, injury, or overuse. But it can also be attributed to a specific condition of the spine: Herniated Disc, Degenerative Disc Disease, Spondylolisthesis, Spinal Stenosis and Osteoarthritis. Less common conditions that cause low back pain are sacroiliac joint dysfunction, spinal tumors, fibromyalgia, and piriformis syndrome. Pain is caused by damage or injury to the muscles and ligaments of the back. Dr. Alex Jimenez’s compiled articles pertaining to low back pain outline the importance of understanding the causes and effects of this uncomfortable symptom. About 80% of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes, often leading to sciatica and other complications. Through various of his articles, Dr. Jimenez emphasizes on the assortment of alternative treatments and solutions for individuals suffering from lower back pain, including chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic focuses on restoring a person’s strength and flexibility to gradually help improve symptoms of lower back pain.
