Premier Family Chiropractic Seeks to Raise Low Back Pain Awareness

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Low back pain affects nearly 80 percent of all adults throughout the course of their lives. It leads to countless days of inactivity and can even force many people to take time away from work. Premier Family Chiropractic of Brentwood, Tennessee aims to raise low back pain awareness and educate people to reduce the risk of developing this condition. The causes of low back pain are numerous, however most are mechanical in nature. These include sprains, strains, herniated discs, intervertebral disc degeneration, ruptured discs, sciatica, traumatic injury, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, skeletal irregularities and spondylolisthesis.

Back pain is a common problem among adults around the world today. It impacts nearly 80 percent of the adult population at one point or another, which leads to lost time at work, lost income, and serious disruptions to quality of life. Premier Family Chiropractic in Brentwood, Tennessee seeks to raise awareness of low back pain causes, conditions, and treatment options.

Most people experience low back pain symptoms for only a few days. Those who experience symptoms between four and 12 weeks are considered to have sub-acute low back pain. Individuals with persistent low back pain lasting 12 weeks or longer, even after receiving treatment for the injury or underlying cause, have what is called chronic back pain.

It's true that most causes of low back pain are mechanical in nature, and there are risk factors that increase the likelihood for low back pain. Among those risk factors are age, pregnancy, weight, genetics, heavy backpacks (bags, purses, briefcases etc.), and occupational risks. Even wearing the wrong shoes can lead to unnecessary low back pain.

Dr. Quinn W. Uzelman of Premier Family Chiropractic explains, "Many of these people are suffering needlessly. There are effective treatments available for their pain – treatments that target the injury or condition rather than working to simply mask the pain."

Chiropractic treatment, which includes chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, pain management therapy, therapeutic exercises and more, can significantly help people suffering from lower back pain both manage and treat their condition. The purpose of these treatments is to isolate and treat underlying conditions that throw the spine out of proper alignment. This allows the body to begin to heal itself.

The combination of chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy starts by providing treatment of the underlying condition for long-term relief from low back pain. The massage provides short-term immediate relief of the pain.

Brentwood residents interested in learning more about chiropractic treatments available for low back pain are encouraged to call (615) 661-4101 to schedule an appointment.
