MANY PEOPLE IN SINGAPORE SUFFER FROM LOW BACK PAIN BECAUSE OF SEVERAL FACTORS THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT BELOW.
Low back pain is extremely common among many Singaporeans. As much as eighty percent of the world’s population will suffer from back pain, especially in their lower back, at one point of time in their life or another. Back pain is one of the most common reasons for visits to the doctor, second only to respiratory infections in the upper tract of the respiratory system. Estimates say that low back pain affects more than half of the world’s adults every year. Many studies have also shown that more than 10% of the world’s population experience, or have experienced, frequent episodes of back pain.
When healthy, strong and utilised in the proper manner, one’s lower back can tolerate a tremendous amount of force without incurring any serious injuries. Competitive powerlifters can lift hundreds of kilograms of weight in a deadlift without injuring their low back. Soldiers can carry extremely heavy rucksacks without causing any immediate injuries.
However, with misalignment or weak supporting muscles, something as mundane as taking grocery bags from the car, picking something up off the floor, or just bending down can cause a low back injury or sharp pain. At Light Chiropractic we will review your conditions and give you the best advice for long term relief.

When there is a hindrance to the typical movement or alignment of the vertebrae, pain occurs. These typically happen right at the bottom of the lumbar spine, where it transitions into the sacrum. Subluxations, or misalignments, can cause crippling pain in the low back. Luckily, the best chiropractors will be able to easily treat any subluxations in your spine. The pain usually lessens almost immediately following each treatment sessions.
Chiropractic is the only trained professionals that are experts in detecting and correcting subluxations.

Disc Herniations (Slipped Disc)
A herniated disc is not a certain precursor or indication of low back pain. In spite of the popular belief that a herniated disc causes back pain, one study concluded that almost half of all adults go about their lives with at least one bulging disc, and many did not realise it nor experience pain. On the flip side, herniated or slipped discs can also cause excruciating pain in the back and throughout the entire body. However, once a disc slips from its proper position, it rarely completely heals. Luckily, chiropractic care and treatment can circumvent further deterioration. For more on disc problems click here.

Chiropractors are some of the best-trained professionals in Singapore to help you re-align your vertebra. Getting adjusted can prevent a wide array of spinal problems from, degeneration to slipped discs. In some cases, the spine degenerates to the point where surgery is the only option. We strongly encourage people to get adjusted before reaching this stage. Here is are examples of disc problems that can bother you with lower back pain.
