This is the million dollar question many people ask when they suffer from chronic back pain! When a nerve in the low back becomes pinched or irritated, the body will protect the delicate nerves by keeping the body from moving and risking further nerve injury. The easiest way for the body to do this is to cause the back muscles to spasm in the injured area.

Once the body starts to feel pain, seek the services of a doctor of chiropractic for an examination to find the root cause of the back pain. Then, the right low back pain treatment can be prescribed. In the meantime, here are a few tips to see you through your low back pain:

Many people seek chiropractic care when their back goes out or their neck tightens up. But how does this form of care actually work? What are the benefits of receiving chiropractic care for nerve dysfunction compared with other healthcare options?

First, let’s discuss how the nervous system “works.” There are three divisions of the nervous system: the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems.

  • Central nervous system (CNS): This includes the brain and spinal cord, essentially the main processing portion of the nervous system. The spinal cord is like a multi-lane highway that brings information to the brain for processing and returns information back to the toes, feet, legs and upper extremities from which the information originated. This is essential to allow us to complete our daily tasks in an efficient, safe manner as information is constantly bouncing back and forth between the brain and the rest of the body.
  • Peripheral nervous system (PNS): This sensory/motor system relays information back and forth from our toes/feet/legs and fingers/hands/arms to the spinal cord (CNS). We also have “reflexes” that, for example, allow us to QUICKLY pull our hand away from a hot stove to minimize burning our fingers. Reflexes allow the information to “skip” the brain’s processing part so quicker reactions can occur.
  • Autonomic nervous system (ANS): This includes the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions that basically “run” our automatic (organ) functions like breathing, heart rate, digestion, hormonal output, and more.

Chiropractor services offer effective and safe treatment for many disorders, some the result of vertebrae subluxations caused by injury, and others just through the normal wear and tear of living. If you are experiencing any of the following conditions, please seek the services of a chiropractor as soon as possible:
