Hey everyone, its Dr. Zac Gassman here at Summit Chiropractic and Sports Institute. Going to talk to you today a little bit about lower back pain. So, lower back pain is the number one cause of disability throughout the world. According to the World Health Organization, 80% of the world’s population is going to have debilitating low back pain, at least one point in their life.
It’s very common for us to see, it can stop us from being able to work, enjoy the things that we want to do play with our kids, anything like that. So working with low back pain is definitely something that we have strive to be the best that we can do. The way that we’ve been able to get good at working on being able to treat low back pain is first figuring out why that low back pain is being caused. There’s literally dozens of reasons why someone can have low back pain, and there isn’t a one shot approached, that’s able to take all of it. So we start off with a good evaluation to figure out what’s going on first, after we know what’s going on.
Most of the time, we have things that contribute being tight, I can’t bend to be able to pick something down or it hurts when I start to move, get pinchy feeling through there. All of those things have to do with how we can move. So we start off our treatment with being able to mobilize, get things to loosen up, move just a little bit better so we can bring that pain down. Once we get that pain down. We can start getting back into those normal activities, exercising, using some core and glutes, being able to squat lunge do all those things that I said before. We want to be able to work, play with kids and enjoy the activities that we want to do. All of that stuff without having to have that fear that back pain is going to take it away from us.
