Spinal Manipulation Therapy for Low Back Pain in Toronto at Back2Life Chiropractic
Are you having trouble with low back pain? You’re not the only one. Low back pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint and affects 80 per cent of the adult population. Low back pain can interrupt your day, prevent you from performing daily tasks including work responsibilities and disrupt you from your sleep.
Both men and women are equally affected by low back pain. If you’re suffering from low back pain, your back may feel constantly achy or dull or you may experience a sudden painful sharpness. Low back pain is sometimes a result from an accident or lifting heavy objects, but it can also happen gradually as you age. Most of the time lower back pain is temporary or short term, lasting for a few days or a few weeks. If the pain persists more than 12 weeks, it is considered chronic low back pain and it can certainly feel like it’s taking over your life.
Spinal manipulation therapy, better known as a chiropractic adjustment, is a common method performed by chiropractors to help reduce low back pain. It can also be a vital option for those who are suffering from chronic nonspecific back pain. Studies have shown that individuals with chronic non-specific low back pain started showing improvements within two weeks of getting adjusted. Every visit had a new improvement and by the 12th visit, approximately 75 per cent of the patients had improved.
After each session with a chiropractor using spinal manipulation therapy, patients can expect to feel:
1. Their pain gradually decrease,
2. Greater mobility in the spine,
3. Improvement in physical function
