Back Pain Treatment in Pleasant Hill

low back pain relief with chiropractic care

Have you ever experienced back pain in Pleasant Hill? Maybe it was a quick episode after working in the garden for too long, or maybe you wake up with it every day? It might be a local, pinpoint spot, or it might go from your neck all the way to your bottom. The fact is, nearly 80% of people (that’s 4 out of every 5 people) will experience back pain in their lives!

Back Pain in Pleasant Hill – It Can Become A Real Pain in The Butt, Can’t It?

It is estimated that Americans will spend $50 billion on back pain remedies this year, most of that money going towards over-the-counter medicines. Unfortunately, these medicines are typically used to cover up the pain, rather than address the problem. (Want to read the study? Click Here).

Most back pain problems start at the spine, due to spinal alignment, mobility, muscle function, and posture. While back pain can be caused by organ and/or disease-related problems like fractures or infections, much of the population does not have chronic back pain stemming from these concerns.

Chiropractors look to address the root of back pain concerns, by looking to the spine for areas of interference. This interference, when left to fester, can cause pain and discomfort in the back and other areas of the body. Unfortunately, pain is one of the last symptoms to appear with back concerns, and on top of that, only 18% of the nerve fibers in our bodies have pain receptors in them! That’s a lot of space for nervous system interference to go unnoticed.

Get Adjustments before it's too late

A comparative study showed that of people who received a chiropractic adjustment for their back pain, 73% saw a reduction of their pain, compared to only 17% who saw a reduction with medical care.

While we love making people feel better through reductions of their pain, we want people to come in before they have any signs or symptoms, so that they don’t have to experience pain in the first place.
