Chiropractic care for low back pain
More and more frequently, back pain sufferers are rejecting pain medications which simply dull pain, choosing instead to correct the source of their pain. Much of the training a doctor of chiropractic receives is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating lower back conditions. General medical training generally lacks adequate focus on this area, discounting physical treatments which can most effectively identify and treat most back conditions without the use of drugs or surgery.

Origins of low back pain
Many tissues in your body can generate low back pain, and for many patients, the specific cause of their pain cannot be determined. Non-specific back pain does not mean, however, that you must continue to suffer. While specific tissues causing low back pain are difficult to identify, a number of factors are consistently present in low back pain patients. These factors include problems in the structure of their spines, spinal misalignments, weak spinal musculature, and poor posture. By addressing these factors, the actual origins of tissue injuries which cause low back pain, your Charlotte chiropractors are able to obtain extraordinary results.
