Your body is designed to move, but if you have ever experienced lower back pain, then you know how it hinders your body’s movement—even simple activities become difficult when you are in pain.
The lower back includes the lumbar spine and pelvis. The lumbar spine consists of five vertebrae identified as L1 through L5, the sacrum and two ilia (hip bones). The function of this important area of our musculoskeletal system is to carry most of the body’s weight.
Unfortunately, many adults will experience low back pain during their life. The good news is that for most people that pain is relatively temporary, but if you are experiencing persistent pain, chiropractic care can accelerate your recovery time!
Chiropractic treatment can reduce pain through manual manipulation of the spine, which corrects misalignments and improves mobility. For those of you that prefer a gentler approach, the Activator Method can be utilized. To learn more about Activator Method go to Activator.com. At Pro-Active Chiropractic, we work together with the patient to reduce pain and discomfort, improve your mobility and decrease the inflammation that causes pain.
