Many people who experience back pain don’t remember a single injury or accident that caused their pain.

“Mike” fell off a ladder and landed on his back. He felt pain in his back when he landed, and when he still feels pain the next day, he knows exactly why it hurts.

“Jane,” on the other hand, is in just as much pain as Mike, except that she never had an accident that she can remember. She often feels uncomfortable during the day.  Sometimes it’s hard for her to focus on her work—or her family—because the pain is always with her. Sometimes it wakes her up at night, too. Buts he shouldn’t be feeling this way—should she? After all, she hasn’t been in a fall or a car accident and she doesn’t remember when she “pulled” something.  She can’t even remember when the pain started.  So…why does it hurt?

Both Jane and Mike need to go see the chiropractor!

In Jane’s case, her back pain is probably the result of years of small, unnoticed “traumas” and stresses that have added up over time. Improper posture, overexertion, lifting and bending, and genetic pre-disposition can all amplify those little traumas. There’s a cumulative effect, until one day Jane realizes that she’s been uncomfortable for a long time and that this is not normal.  Pain is interfering more and more with herdaily activities—but she can’t remember having a big injury. Instead of a single event, small injuries have added up into the “straw that broke the camel’s back.”

The good news is, Jane’s chiropractor can help!

Soon both Jane and Mike will be feeling relief from the pain and well in the process of healing—all without the use of drugs or surgeries.
