Low back pain is a common problem. It can be sudden and sharp or a dull ache. Eighty percent of all adult Americans will experience this type of pain at some point in their lifetime. Low back pain is second only to headaches as the most common pain. The lower part of your back, or lumbar region, is very important and supports your entire upper body. Living with chronic low back pain or even acute low back pain can be more than just bothersome and there is hope. Lower back cramps and muscle spasms can also result from tightness in the lumbar region. Nerve-root pressure can cause tingling or numbness in your legs along with the pain in your back. Causes for low back pain include too much exercise, too little exercise or straining by incorrectly lifting heavy objects, stress, trauma as well as other factors. In most cases it is a combination of issues that have culminated in pain.
Sciatica is another common cause of pain. Sciatica is the inflammation of a nerve in your lower back called the sciatic nerve. This nerve begins in your lumbar region and then extends down your leg. When it becomes inflamed it often results in severe low back pain that can radiate all the way down to your feet. Sciatica is not a disease, but is instead a symptom that, like other low back pain, has a number of possible causes. Herniated discs often cause sciatica, for example. Spinal cord infections and spinal cord tumors are other possible causes, but they are much less common.

Symptoms of pinched nerves can be minor to serious depending upon the extent of the pinching. Sciatica can be caused by a pinched nerve and most pinched nerves are the result of herniated discs, injuries, poor posture or obesity.

Sports injuries come in all shapes and sizes. Instead of getting better over time, many athletes find that their injuries actually worsen. Both professional and amateur athletes alike benefit from chiropractic treatments for their strains and other pain. Professional athletes in particular often turn to chiropractors because the use of drugs can compromise their standing and recovery time from surgery can be long. Chiropractic treatments for sports injuries get athletes doing the activities they love sooner and safely. Even if you are not a professional athlete and you find yourself hurting after a tough fall or lifting with improper form, you should consider consulting a chiropractor. Blows to the torso, legs, head, or shoulders often result in unexpected spinal injuries when the spinal column becomes misaligned. A blow to any part of the body from impact with another player or a fall can radiate to the center of the body and spine. Shoulders and the neck are also commonly strained and injured. A holistic chiropractor understands and uses bio-mechanics to help sports injuries heal quickly and correctly. Diagnosis of sports injuries is performed in the same way as with other neck and back pain and recovery time is usually only a matter of weeks.
