Low Back Pain Prairie Village Chiropractic Care
How prevalent is low back pain today?
Research has show that 70-80% of the population will suffer from low back pain. That means that in the Kansas City metro area alone, over 1,750,000 people will suffer from low back pain. Often, low back pain will go away on its own. But what is a person to do when it doesn’t go away after a few days?
Enter the Chiropractor
This is where chiropractic care can offer great benefits. Why? Because chiropractic care can often find and solve the root cause of the problem. Was it restricted joints causing the pain? If so, chiropractic adjustments will help. Maybe it was core instability. If so, we can give you exercises to strengthen the muscles around your spine. Is the pain arising from the muscles in your low back? We can offer dry needling, myofascial release and other methods to eliminate the muscle issues.
The Importance of a Large Toolbox
This large amount of treatment “tools” is what sets us apart from other chiropractors in the Kansas City area. Adjustments alone are a great tool but can’t help with trigger points or instability. Likewise, dry needling isn’t helpful for tight and restricted joints. The more tools your chiropractor has at his or her disposal means more possibilities of a successful outcome for a person with low back pain. Research even shows that using a combination of exercises and adjustments is far more effective than using just adjustments or just exercises.
