When you break it down, it becomes fairly simple.  There can only be three different things that can make a lower back go “bad”.

1.)       Poor movements and repetitive activities such as bending and lifting

2.)       Prolonged poor posture such as sitting slouched all day in front of a computer

3.)       Trauma

When you look at lower back classifications, you also have three.

1.)       Postural Syndrome – fix posture…fix pain.

2.)       Dysfunction Syndrome – repair and remodel dysfunctional tissue and problem is resolved

3.)  Derangement Syndrome – reduce the initial derangement, maintain that reduction, restore all other movements and educate patient on the prevention of further.

There can be a number of tissues involved as a pain generator.  These can be:  joint, nerve, muscle, bone, tendon, ligament and other general connective tissues to name a few.  It is a fact that nearly 80% of the population will have lower back pain at some time in their lives.  Lower back pain is not considered normal and there can be many complementary and alternative treatment protocols other than pain relievers, muscle relaxers and surgery.  Please call THWC today to schedule your appointment for you or someone close to you that may suffer from lower back pain.

“We all make mistakes; it’s human. But when we hold fast to a grudge it eats away at our sense of peace and serenity. If you aren’t willing to forgive, you might ask yourself what habit of ego you’re attached to. Do you want to continue life with unresolved issues hanging over you?”
