Understanding the Cause of Low Back Pain
One of the most understandable causes of lower back pain is the kind of low back pain that occurs when someone has an injury; such as falling, heavy lifting, over-exercising or doing weight lifting and all of a sudden – bang the back hurts. Many people have experienced this type of low back pain and sought back pain treatment for this type of acute injury. This is the type of low back pain that is easily understood,
HOWEVER: there are many kinds of low back pain that seem to be of a mysterious origin.
Davis Holistic Chiropractic Center specializes in dealing with the diagnosis and back pain treatment of what seem to be rather mysterious lower back problems.
Many of the things that can cause low back pain are: slow onset and chronic in nature.
To the untrained eye, they may not even seem to be related to the lower back pain that the patient is experiencing. For example, if someone is drinking a great deal of coffee in the mornings to get their day started, that coffee starts to weaken the kidneys. What do coffee and kidneys have to do with lower back pain you may ask? Well, the support muscles in the front of the spine, called the psoas muscles, can then become very weak as the kidneys weaken. The next thing you know the person has leaned over to simply pick up a piece of paper or just drop something into wastebasket and all of a sudden they’re back seizes up on them and they experience severe low back pain.
The patient may come in seeking back pain treatment thinking that they have pulled a muscle or some other such simple explanation, but the truth is that this low back pain is the body’s way of signaling that there are other problems that need to be addressed. Many people don’t understand how this can happen. It’s a gradual onset, even though the low back pain itself may seem to be sudden onset.
