MANY PEOPLE IN SINGAPORE SUFFER FROM LOW BACK PAIN BECAUSE OF SEVERAL FACTORS THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT BELOW.
Eighty percent of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. It is estimated that low back pain affects more than half of the adult population each year and more than 10% of all people experience frequent bouts of low back pain.
As long as it is healthy and functioning correctly, the low back can withstand tremendous forces without injury. Professional powerlifters can pick up several hundred pounds off the floor without injuring their low back. However, if the low back is out of adjustment or has weakened supporting muscles, something as simple as taking a bag of groceries out of the trunk of the car, picking something up off the floor, or just bending down to pet the dog can cause a low back injury.
Light Chiropractic adjustments can:
- Improve Mobility in your lower back
- Wake up with more movement
- Move with more confidence
- Lift without any restrictions
- Treat disc herniations
- Prevent disc herniations
Whenever there is a disruption in the normal movement or position of the vertebrae, the result is pain and inflammation. In the lumbar spine, these usually occur at the transition between the lower spine and the sacrum. Subluxations can lead to debilitating low back pain. Fortunately, subluxations are easily treatable, and often a significant reduction in pain is experienced almost immediately after treatment. Chiropractic is the only trained professionals that detect and corrects subluxations. Chiropractors learn for four years on the science, philosophy, and art of Chiropractic. No other formal trained profession is qualified to talk about topics on life and well being more than Chiropractors are.
Disc Herniations (Slipped Disc)
Contrary to popular belief, a herniated disc does not automatically mean that you are going to suffer from low back pain. In fact, one study found that almost half of all adults had at least one bulging or herniated disc, even though they did not suffer any back pain from it. On the other hand, herniated discs can be a source of intense and debilitating pain that frequently radiates to other areas of the body. Unfortunately, once a disc herniates, it rarely, if ever, completely heals. Further deterioration can often be avoided through regular chiropractic care. For more on disc problems click here.

The only way for a disc to get nutrition is through proper movement at each vertebra. Chiropractors are the best-trained professionals to help you mobilize the vertebra. Getting adjusted can prevent a wide array of spinal problems from degeneration to slipped disc. In some occasions, surgery is the only option so we strongly encourage people to get adjusted so the need for surgery will be nullified. Here is are examples of disc problems that can bother you.
