Back pain is one of the most common ailments treated by Doctors of Chiropractic. Ever since human beings stood upright, they are having something or other with their backs. In fact, experts estimate that roughly 80 percent of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And men are more likely to suffer from backache than women. Back pain could also occur by doing things improperly - like standing, sitting, or lifting heavy weight - for a long time.
Symptoms of Backache
The following are some of the symptoms of backache:
In most cases of backache, the pain is usually felt either in the middle of the back or lower down. It may spread to both sides of the waist and the hips. In a condition of acute pain, the patient is unable to move and is bedridden.
About ninety per cent of backache patients suffer from what is called cervical and lumbar spondylosis. It is a degenerative disorder in which the different vertebrae adhere to each other through bony unions. As a result of this, the spine loses its flexibility.
