Let’s cut right to the chase on this topic. There is no such thing as “normal” back pain. Pain is a symptom, a warning light of sorts, that tells you something is wrong. Do you have normal eye pain, normal pain with urination, normal ringing in your ears, or normal dizziness? You would not think of these symptoms as normal. If you had those symptoms you would follow up with your family doctor to see why you hurt.
Back pain is so very common in our lives that people often mistake the pain as being normal. Society thinks it’s simply part of getting older. Back pain affects 75% of people at some point in their life.
It is pretty safe to say that you will experience back pain at some point and will need to come see me. The bigger question is this: When you have back pain will you ignore it and hope it goes away or actually take care of it and fix the problem?
Chiropractic care has been shown to be 95% effective in treating back pain. That is better than ibuprofen, physical therapy, pain medications, and muscle relaxers when it comes to clinical trials. Not only is chiropractic effective in relieving some of your pain quickly, it also fixes the actual problem that is causing your pain. By correcting the misalignment of your spine you are preventing future problems. I’m sure you know someone that had back pain, it went away, only to return again a few months later. It came back because the problem was never fixed, the warning light was simply turned off for the time being.
