Approximately 80% of the population will suffer from low back pain throughout their lives. Back pain can be caused from a number of factors including spinal misalignment, disc bulges, “pinched” nerves, fracture, muscle or ligament injury. Back pain can come and go for a period of time. Pain is never a good indication of spinal health, as only about 10% of nerves function to ‘feel’ pain, so people can carry on for a long time without even knowing that they have a spinal problem. If you’re concerned about the health and alignment of your spine, see a chiropractor for a full professional assessment and treatment options.
