Arrowhead Clinic - Duluth

It has been estimated that up to 80% of the American population suffers from back pain. Whether severe pain throws you to the ground, or simply a tiny twitch you feel when getting out of bed this morning, we have all felt some discomfort in our backs.

Here are two prevalent reasons of back pain that chiropractors have seen:

1- Lower back pain is frequently caused by bad posture. Sitting in a slouched position for extended periods of time can cause hip flexors to tense and lower back muscles to elongate, impacting pelvic tilt and mobility. To decompress the spine, use a stand-up desk and hang from a door frame to correct posture.

2- Smoking not only causes lung cancer but also damages the spine and lower back. Nicotine restricts blood flow and interferes with calcium absorption, leading to back problems and lower back pain.
