Many factors can be responsible for low back pain.

Many of the pain sensing nerves of the spine are in facet joints, the two interlocking "fingers" at the back of each spinal bone. The normally smooth surfaces on which these joints glide, can become rough, irritated and inflamed.

Surgical treatment often involves removing these facet joints, exposing the spinal cord!

Another cause of lower back pain can be a bulging disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or a nearby nerve root. The result is often numbness, tingling, or pain down the leg. Cutting away the bulging disc tissue, can permanently alter its ability to seperate and cushion the adjacent bones. This rarely addresses the underlying structural
cause(s) of the problem.

The chiropractic approach is to help restore a more normal motion and position of affected spinal bones by specific chiropractic adjustments. The simplicity and success of this approach has been documented in numerous research projects and has helped many patients avoid risky surgery.

Chiropractic adjustments help normalize function to reduce painful symptoms without drugs or surgery. Many research projects show conservative chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery.
