Low Back Pain Treatment From Our Blue Springs Chiropractor
Most people experience low back pain at some time in their lives. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke estimates that up to 80 percent of the population will have an episode of low back pain at some point. Back pain problems may occur strains or sprains experienced during work duties or during sports activities. They may also result from falls or other accidents. In some cases, the disks of the spine degenerate, or they may bulge out of position. In other cases, compression of nerves may be at fault. Nerve involvement generally occurs in stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal, or due to the compression that occurs in sciatica. Other health issues can also produce pain in the lower back. A careful diagnosis can determine the exact cause of the problem. Our Blue Springs chiropractor can help to relieve low back pain, using a variety of specialized techniques.
Acupuncture For Back Pain Treatment
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical technique that uses very fine needles that are inserted in specific energy centers in the human body. The needles help to direct energy to various parts of the body. Research indicates that acupuncture helps to improve blood circulation and the production of certain healing chemicals that the body naturally produces. Acupuncture can be used to aid a variety of health problems, and it has been used to effectively treat lower back pain for many years. Recent studies indicate that acupuncture is an effective treatment for low back pain for many individuals. Your chiropractor can utilize this ancient technique to relieve your backache and improve your spinal function.
