You’ve been employed in the Lincoln Park, Illinois region for many years and you love your job, and it shows! But on your last performance review your supervisor told you that you did not seem to be as productive as you normally are. So you wonder if this is the reason that you are passed on once again for a promotion. The only reason that you can come up with is the fact that you have been missing a lot of work lately because of the chronic pain in your lower back. It’s true that you aren’t as active as you should be and that you spend most of your day sitting down but why does the pain become so intense that it affects your performance and keeps you from coming to work?
Lower back pain decreases productivity
The fact of the matter is that most of us at one time or another in our lives will suffer from lower back pain. The leading causes of this condition are related to inactivity, poor posture and injury. The lower back is subjected to a lot of mechanical stress because it is under constant load from the weight of the upper body and it is often made to assume uncomfortable positions for extended lengths of time. At Botti Chiropractic & Wellness Center we are specialists in treating the cause of your pain and helping you regain your mobility. We perform a thorough examination including details of your past medical history to help determine the cause of your lower back pain so that we can create the right course of treatment.
Does treating the symptoms with Anti-inflammatory medication help
While it is true that you do get some relief from medication, you are only really attempting to manage the symptoms without addressing the cause of the problem. Pain is your body’s way of alerting you to a serious problem, so by simply masking this pain you may in fact be doing more harm than good. If your condition has progressed to the point of becoming a chronic condition, this may indicate a serious problem such as a herniated disk or a pinched nerve. One of the most common issues that contribute to the severity of your pain comes from a misalignment of your spine. Dr. Botti and his team at the Botti Chiropractic & Wellness Center will work closely with you to devise a treatment program that is specific to your condition. All the Chiropractic adjustments to your spine and your musculoskeletal system will be performed with the specific goal of easing and correcting the cause of your pain.
Here are some of the benefits from a successful chiropractic treatment plan for your lower back pain.
- Improved mobility and range of motion
- Increased sense of wellness with less fatigue
- Higher level of productivity
- Decreased level of fear from injury
