Lower Back Pain is One of the Most Common Spinal Injuries that We Treat at ASFCA

Chances are at some point everyone has experienced some form of back pain. Whether it be a minor injury or something more severe, one thing remains the same, spinal subluxations or back injuries that are left untreated, can result in debilitating pain symptoms, and lifelong spinal conditions that can have serious impact on an individual’s overall health and wellness.

One of the most common forms of spinal subluxation that we see patients seeking chiropractic treatment for is a lower back injury.

In fact, studies have shown that up to 23% of the world’s adults suffer from chronic low back pain (Balagué F, 2012). The lower back, also known as the lumbar and sacral spine, are a complex area of the body that supports the upper body’s weight, enables movement, and protects the spinal cord and nerves. The lumbar spine consists of five vertebrae (L1 to L5), cushioned by intervertebral discs, and surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Listen to Your Body to Know the Difference in Pain Symptoms

One thing that nerve injuries have in common are the symptoms, but every patient and condition is different. Don’t wait and cause nerve damage by ignoring the symptoms of radiating pain, aching, numbness and tingling. Some patients experience more severe pain symptoms than others. The severity is not the best indicator of the degeneration happening but the time and number of incidents that it has occurred. It’s important to listen to your body when you begin to feel the warning signs of a potential spinal subluxation and lower back injury and to see your Chiropractor when it’s mild before it worsens.

The Most Common Signs or Symptoms of Lower Back Pain

  • Muscle Strain: The most common cause of lower back pain is muscle strain or sprain. Overexertion, lifting heavy objects, sudden movements, or poor posture can strain the muscles and ligaments in the lower back.
  • Seated and Sedentary Lifestyle: With the rise of desk jobs and a sedentary seated work lifestyle, many people spend prolonged periods sitting in front of computers or engaging in activities that lead to poor posture. This can lead to weakened back and core muscles and increased stress on the lower back vertebrae and discs.
  • Obesity: Excess weight, especially in the abdominal area, can strain the lower back, lead to excessive back arching and contribute to pain and discomfort.
  • Age: As people age, injuring and misalignments start to accumulate. When the joints are not in proper alignment the discs between the vertebrae in the spine start to degenerate and an accelerated rate, just like a tire that is out of alignment. This degeneration leads to conditions like osteoarthritis or herniated discs, which can cause lower back pain.
  • Injuries: Accidents, falls, and sports injuries can damage the structures in the lower back, such as the discs, joints, or nerves, leading to pain.
  • Structural Issues: Some people may have structural issues with their spine, such as scoliosis or other spinal abnormalities, that can lead to lower back pain.
  • Stress & Anxiety: can manifest physically, including in the form of muscle tension and back pain.
  • Poor Mattress and Sleep Posture: An unsupportive mattress or poor sleep posture can lead to or exacerbate lower back pain.


Diagnose and Treat Lower Back Pain Naturally with the Team of Experts at ASFCA

A lower back subluxation or injury is not only physically painful, but it can also be financially and mentally draining. This can cause those afflicted to miss time from work, start taking opiod or nsaid pain killers all while racking up medical bills and not addressing the cause of the problem. The added stress can intensify pain symptoms and prolong the healing process.

Unfortunately, many American turn to quick fix treatments for lower back pain including the use of addictive pain medications, spinal injections, and in some cases invasive back surgeries that can result in lifelong complications and hold a risk for worsening the condition. One a surgery has been performed the change can never completely be reversed.
