Chiropractic and Low Back Pain 1

In Singapore, about 80% of adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. That percentage is about to increase due to more working adults working from home and limiting their physical activities significantly.

So what are the common factors that cause low back pain?

  1. Prolong sitting
  2. Working in front of a computer for a long period of time
  3. Excessive use of smart devices such as handphones or iPad
  4. Lack of exercise
  5. Overweight, obesity
  6. History of past injury
  7. Sports injury
  8. Poor posture.
  9. Stress
  10. Pregnancy
  11. Taking care of little children.

So what can you do when you have low back pain?

Chiropractors are trained health care professionals who are treating muscular skeletal-related issues through a non-surgical approach. At our center, we also use other approaches such as decompression therapy, guided exercises and stretch to improve the outcome of low back pain patients. Many studies have concluded that chiropractic adjustments are effective for the treatment of low back pain as well as herniated discs.
