Low Back Pain and Chiropractic

Low Back Pain is the most common ailment in North America today. Our downtown Vancouver Chiropractors is able to assess, diagnose and treat your low back pain.

Generally, most cases of low back pain are triggered by a combination of muscle or ligament injury or strain, overuse, and injury to the discs that support the spine. The contention among the experts is that muscle strain can lead to an overall imbalance in the spinal structure thus leading to constant tension on the muscles, ligaments, bones, and discs, making the back more vulnerable and prone to injury or re-injury.

The causes of pain in the low back, or lumbosacral region, tend to add on to one another. For example, after straining muscles, you are likely to walk or move in different ways to avoid pain or to use muscles that aren’t sore. That can cause you to strain other muscles that don’t usually move that way.
