What is Chiropractics?

Chiropractic therapy aims at healing various health alignments, with the help of spinal manipulations. Chiropractic therapy is also very much effective in lessening of pain and improving of muscle functioning. A chiropractor believes that most of the problems related to our body is a direct or indirect result of subluxations and can be treated with appropriate manipulations. Chiropractic treatment does not involve any medicine, drug, injection or surgery, rather they emphasize on healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition.

Lower back pain

The low back, also known as the lumber area, plays important role in the human body. Whenever we stand, it supports the upper part of the body. Whenever we bend or rotate at the waist, it involves the lower back. Hence whenever we are not able to stand straight, it is often because the muscles, tendons or the spine have got injured or tensed.

Common causes of back pain:

  • Injury to the muscles
  • Overuse/Tiring of the muscles
  • Fractures
  • Inflammation of nerves.
  • Scoliosis, in which the spine does not remain erect, rather becomes C-shaped.
  • Joint degeneration, it commonly develops with the age.
  • Herniated Disc, when the spinal discs grows thin.
  • Nerve root syndrome, pain arising from nerve impingement due to herniated discs.
  • Myofascial pain, characterized by pain and tenderness in the localized area.
  • Tumors can also cause low back pain.

Other causes:

  • Infection in the bone.
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Obesity

Low back pain and chiropractics

Chiropractors treat low back pain in a very simple manner without any involvement of painful injections or medicines. They focus on spinal manipulation and alignment as it is believed that alignment reduces the pressure from the central nervous system. The adequate force applied on the affected area releases the pain and nerve irritability. It is also termed as chiropractic adjustment. The affected muscles and joints are stretched and force is applied to get relief from the pain in the affected area.

Chiropractic therapy is a safe and convenient process to get rid of muscular and joint pain. Apart from the manipulation, the chiropractors also guide us along with the diet, exercise, nutritional supplements etc.
