Is That Pain In The Small Of Your Back No Small Pain?
By Tom Herrin
We all experience pain of some kind. A lot of us have pain in our lower back, often referred to as the small of our back. We tend to diagnose it as just burning the candle at both ends too much or sleeping wrong or maybe something else. Those things could very well contribute to it, but if we have this frequently, it may indicate a problem that is not going away on its own. Unless you like living with pain, it may be time to see a chiropractor.
Maybe I Need to Just Take A Few Pain Meds
All too often people ignore pain. It seems to get in the way of their schedule. The easy way out may be to take pain medication. That easy way out can prolong treatment and mask a problem. I know far too many people who just took pain medication and ended up dependent on it. Over-the-counter drug addiction is a widespread problem in our country. For that reason, many people are choosing the healthier, natural means of treating pain. Chiropractic has been found to be the most successful means of treating back pain.
How Is It So Natural?
Anytime you can treat something without drugs and medication, it would be considered natural. Chiropractic goes much further than that. Often that lower back pain is the result of a subluxation or movement of the vertebrae in that area. When this happens, pressure is applied to the nerves which use the spine as a means of traveling throughout the body. Your chiropractor can manipulate the spine so that these vertebrae move back into place, thus easing this pressure. The result is less pain and greater comfort. You may experience total relief the first time or take a few times for complete recovery, depending on the extent of the problem.

Once your pain is gone, you’ll want to look for ways to keep it that way. Regular chiropractic can help keep your spine aligned properly, avoiding any repeat instances.
