Lower back pain is a common medical complaint that has many possible causes. Because your back is an intricate structure composed of many muscles, ligaments, tendons, disks and bones, a problem in any one of these can lead to pain.

Causes of Lower Back Pain
The most common causes of lower back pain include muscle strain, improper lifting or bending, making a sudden or awkward movement, poor posture, weight gain, herniated disks, arthritis, sciatica, osteoporosis and skeletal disorders. During pregnancy, many women experience lower back pain due to changes in hormone levels combined with weight gain.

How Pain Affects Your Back
Back pain makes it difficult for you to stand up straight, limits your flexibility and range of motion and interferes with the things you need to do on a daily basis. In some cases, the pain may extend down your legs, causing further discomfort and distress.

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
When you are seeking relief for lower back pain, chiropractic treatment is a natural choice. Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit chiropractors, and scientific studies have shown that chiropractic treatment is just as successful as conventional medical treatments for mild to moderate lower back pain. Chiropractic adjustment seeks to relieve your pain and restore normal functioning to the joints in your back. During a chiropractic session, Dr. Shapiro, a chiropractor in Old Bridge of Plaza Chiropractic Center will manipulate your spine to move the affected joint or joints beyond the usual range of motion to release pressure from within the joint.
