Back Exercises

backpainAccording to the American Chiropractic Association, 70-85% of people will experience at least one episode of moderate to severe back pain at some point in their life.  Back pain can be caused by a traumatic event, work activities or oftentimes may present with no known cause. If you are suffering from back pain and it is not resolving quickly, visit your Doctor of Chiropractic. Your pain may result from mechanical problems that your doctor can address. Many Chiropractic patients with long-lasting or recurring back pain feel improvement shortly after starting chiropractic treatment. The chiropractic approach to treating back pain is to not only treat the pain itself but to identify the cause of the pain and treat it directly. Treatment may involve restoring motion to the spine through a combination of Chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy for the muscles and ligaments, as well as rehabilitative exercises. Often the Doctor will prescribe exercises or activities that will ensure a long-term solution to the condition by preventing its recurrence.
