Back Pain Treatment in Chicago
One of the most common complaints among individuals is low back pain. Some sources claim that 80% of the U.S. population will experience back pain at some point in their life. Young or old, low back pain can cause even the healthiest individuals to miss out on everyday activities. Pain in the lower region of the back can be caused by a variety of factors; the majority of them are fixable. Sleeping the wrong way, abnormal lifting techniques, poor posture, and frequently sitting at a desk can all lead to low back pain.
Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in treating low back pain. It is a natural and drug free option to get you out of pain quickly and allow you to return to all the things you love.

“After an extensive study of all currently available care for low back problems, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research—a federal government research organization—recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. And it recommended spinal manipulation as the only safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults.”

“Patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians. Satisfaction scores were higher for chiropractic patients. A higher proportion of chiropractic patients (56 percent vs. 13 percent) reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, whereas nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse.”

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a safe and effective spine pain treatment. It reduces pain, decreases medication usage, rapidly advances physical therapy, and requires very few passive forms of treatment, such as bed rest.
