The average person experiences low back pain at some point in their life. The lumbar region, which starts below the ribcage, is the most common place back pain occurs. Most flare ups heal themselves over time but if the pain lasts more than 72 hours it is important to seek help. The good news is that there are effective treatments that can help you get over your pain once and for all. Low back pain sufferers normally feel a dull ache, stabbing jolt, or shooting sensation. Standing up straight after a long period of sitting or laying down may be difficult. The pain may be bad enough that you’re even stuck laying on the floor.
Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is considered a safe, effective treatment for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or a car accident. Acute back pain, which is more common than chronic pain, lasts no more than six weeks and occasionally heals on its own. If you are looking for possible relief for low back pain then chiropractic care is an immediate relief option.
Research has also shown chiropractic to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches.
