Because approximately 80% of people have been recorded with back pain at one time or another, it is considered the second most common reason people choose to visit the doctor’s office. The lower back is an unstable part of the spine and that means it is much more susceptible to injury and pain. Sprained muscles and ligaments, ruptured disks, poor posture, stress, and obesity can cause pain in your lower back. In order to properly heal your back, your Collegedale chiropractor will adjust your lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis. Other doctors may treat the symptoms of your problems but your chiropractor at Reach Health focuses on the problem itself! Studies have even shown that chiropractic care is not only most effective, but also much less expensive!
