Low Back Problems and Their Cause






Low back pain for many of us is somewhat of a middle age problem. Lots of patients begin to seek Chiropractic care in their 30’s and 40’s and wonder how it all happened. Perhaps it was a sneeze, a long drive, or gardening in the yard that set the pain off. But you were always able to do these things before without so much as a chirp from your low back. And now things are different. Even job stress can add to back pain. Don’t wait too long once you begin to have back pain. If you hurt your back and it continues past one week you need to be checked and treated.
