Low back conditions are the number one cause of disability, not only in the United States, but throughout the entire world!   Trauma (including work accidents, athletic injuries, and falls) can lead to localized tissue injury and can have long-term effects if left untreated.  Non-traumatic stress (such as repetitive twisting and bending, postural/core weakness, and obesity) can also lead to on-going and recurring symptoms.  When a patient comes to our office with a concern of low back pain, hip/buttock pain, and/or sciatica, our examination is likely going to focus on the lower-half of the spine (sacrum, lumbar spine and lower thoracic spine), the associated ribs, the ilium (aka the pelvis), the iliofemoral joints (or hips), and the associated muscles, nerves, and soft tissues.  All of these parts need to work together properly in order for our body to have proper function and pain free motion...when any of these tissues becomes irritated, injured, or stressed, it can cause a number of symptoms.  For example, postural strain in the lumbar spine can frequently lead to low back pain.  Lumbar disc and joint injury can cause nerve pain into the buttock, thigh, and lower leg.  Imbalances in the pelvis can lead to movement problems in the hips causing bursitis and muscle irritation.  In addition to the physical stress that can cause these symptoms, emotional stress frequently leads to abnormal muscles tightening and a strained posture which can increase the pain and discomfort.  Although many things can be affected and can present itself with a wide-variety of symptoms, we have the answer...Conservative, drugless, non-surgical CHIROPRACTIC CARE!  By restoring the normal function and structure of the joints, muscles, and nerves, and removing the stress on these tissues, we allow the body to heal properly resulting in a significant reduction in the irritation, inflammation, and pain.  This allows you to be the BEST YOU!
