Symptoms of Low Back Pain
Low back pain may be shooting or sharp pain, dull pain, constant pain or pain that only shows up with certain types of movement. If low back pain has continued for more than three months, it’s called chronic back pain. Low back pain that lasts less than three months is called acute back pain.
This type of pain may be from:
- previous back surgery
- serious back conditions
- bad posture
- short leg syndrome
- neurological disorders
- diseases that affect the back
- lack of activity
- trauma to the back
- disk herniation
- work injury or car accident

Scientific Studies Prove That Chiropractic Works
Study after study on chiropractic methods prove that low back pain doesn’t have to be something you live with forever. Different methods of chiropractic spinal adjustment also proved they all were more effective than standard medical treatment with painkillers and conservative care.
Similarly, the medical literature is filled with reports of higher efficacy of chiropractic adjustments and chiropractic treatment for low back pain than for medical treatment.
Other studies have even shown that those who received no benefits from medical care for their low back pain for several months started improving quickly after chiropractic care was started.
And this all makes sense because when your Houston chiropractor adjusts your spine in the low back area, she is helping the nerve impulses get to the organs and tissues that they are supposed to get to. It’s nerve flow that starts healing.
