Do you suffer from debilitating back pain that affects your legs and overall movement? If you answered yes to this question, you are among the thousands of Canadians who experience some of the most intense and excruciating ongoing pain. Left untreated, back pain can become chronic and affect more than just your back. As it progresses, it reduces your overall quality of life.
Slips, twists, lifts and falls all contribute to spinal misalignment. It’s important to listen to your body’s warning signs and seek professional help before your pain gets worse. Many people suffer from back pain and sciatica after injuring their lower back. Convinced that the pain will go away, most mask their pain with medication, reduce their mobility, and mistakenly believe that the pain has lessened. However, untreated pain in the lower back reappears after the slightest movement. Remember that pain can never go away on its own forever without addressing its cause.
If you have mild or moderate low back pain or sciatic leg pain, you may still be functioning at an intermediate level. However, if your pain worsens, your quality of life decreases and can lead to increased irritability, poor work performance, limited mobility, loss of mobility, and general unhappiness.
IS PAIN LIMITING YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE?
When a vertebra moves out of alignment, it puts unnecessary pressure on the spinal nerve, resulting in decreased nerve flow. Subluxation occurs as a result of our daily activity and movement which over time causes unnecessary pain and dysfunction due to micro-traumas. You don’t have to hurt yourself to feel pain.
Chiropractic aims to realign the vertebrae and encourage the body to begin its natural healing process. Proper spinal alignment relieves headaches, fibromyalgia, neck and shoulder pain, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, allergies, back pain, sciatica, sports injuries, arthritis, knee pain and fatigue, to name a few.
It is important to remember that our nervous system controls our entire body and neglecting it affects our overall functioning. Each bone in the vertebra is connected to a nerve that sends signals to the rest of the body. When the spine is aligned, the nervous system can function optimally.
If you are feeling pain, don’t ignore your body’s call for help and see your local chiropractor for a spine exam! Chiropractic is an affordable and proven method of treatment that is covered by most private health insurance funds.
Opting for regular chiropractic care will help you look after your spine and the surrounding structures to ensure your musculoskeletal and nervous systems are in top shape. This restores proper nerve flow from your body to your brain and vice versa, relieves you of any discomfort, reduces stress, and improves the overall function of your entire body.
