As you can seen the prevalence of back pain is overwhelming.  SO what causes back pain, why is the prevalence so over whelming ?

The cause of back pain can vary quite widely.   With so many muscles, bones, ligaments and joints all working together – strains and other injuries can occur quite frequently.  Back pain can be caused due to improper lifting, poor posture, stress, being overweight, old sports injuries or even a traumatic accident.  Conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis and even internal organ diseases can cause back pain.

Chiropractic in Brantford is a very safe and effective way to treat back pain.  Proper chiropractic care can improve your mobility and decrease the occurrence of back pain.  For many patients eliminating the side effects from prescription medications is a welcomed benefit of chiropractic care.  One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic care is that it can focus on the cause of your problem where as,  most medications will only temporarily mask the symptoms.  When only treating the pain you may experience temporary pain relief but the is causing the pain will still be present.

A good chiropractor will also suggest lifestyle changes that you can make to improve your condition.  Things such as maintaining healthy weight, avoiding prolonged sitting, staying hydrated and wearing low heeled shoes are all helpful things that you can do to improve your back.
