Low Back Pain: 80% Suffer
Every 4 out of 5 young adults suffer from low back pain. Scary numbers.
Do you experience lower back pain with varying degrees of intensity at intermittent or regular intervals? Well, you should know that left unattended, this pain could impede your mobility significantly. Lower back pain usually occurs in the lumbar or waist region, which supports most of the weight of the upper body. Typical symptoms include weakness in the legs, loss of bladder control, or fever. Chiropractic manipulation is effective in mitigating any inflammation or pain in the affected area.
A sedentary lifestyle, obesity, improper posture, etc., are the most common factors that contribute towards acute or chronic back pain. Pain that generally lasts longer than six months may be termed as chronic.
80% / 20% rule applies. Pick your side.
You may have experienced a dull ache or a sudden shooting sensation at some point, making it impossible to move normally. It is now well documented that a sprain or tearing of a ligament accounts for nearly 70% of acute lower back pain. You need to take note of this fact and think twice before lifting heavy objects or moving in a way that causes a sudden jerk of the back.
Pain can also surface due to a degenerative disc as a result of aging. However, unless the injury is categorized as a trauma and needs detailed medical intervention, most cases of lower back pain can be addressed adequately using non-invasive procedures.
