How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Low Back Pain
Whether you’ve overdone something, strained your back, or are sitting too much, back pain happens when we stop moving properly. Improper movement in your vertebrae, or back joints, causes irritation and interference in the nerves that run through them. Chiropractors identify problem areas and restore proper motion in those joints, allowing the nerves to calm down. This means less pain and more function.
