Fortunately, chiropractic care ranks among the most popular and effective treatment options available today for back pain. Through the use of spinal adjustments and manual manipulations, chiropractors help both relieve the symptoms as well as correct the individuals source of back pain to gradually restore their natural state of well-being. According to many chiropractors, spinal adjustments can provide more efficient results if it’s combines with weight loss.

According to the American Obesity Association, individuals whom are categorized as overweight or obese can be most at risk of developing back pain and complications than individuals who aren’t.

Obesity can affect an individual’s lifestyle and alter their capability to engage in healthy physical activities and exercises. Participating in these is essential towards strengthening the muscles of the body, especially the core muscles. A stronger core can remove added pressure from the back to decrease the chance of back pain and other problems.

Additionally, the spinal cord can become exceedingly burdened in the case of obese individuals. Due to the additional weight, the spine begins to compensate for balance and support of the whole body, which can cause tilting and uneven stress. Both of these can contribute to severe, chronic back pain. Obesity is one of the leading factors contributing to lower back pain.

Also, according to experts in weight loss and chiropractors, weight loss can provide a partial or complete decrease of back pain symptoms. There still remains an insufficient amount of research between the connection of weight loss and back pain but a large number of professionals have reported cases where individuals have experienced a tremendous reduction in their pain after losing weight. As a result, the extra weight is removed away from the spine, reducing the added stress on the vertebra and other tissues surrounding the spine. Together with multiple sessions of chiropractic adjustments to carefully re-align the vertebral column, an individual can recover faster and more efficiently. According to the American Spine Society, individuals that stay within 10 pounds of their ideal weight are the ones least likely to experience spinal complications in the future, specifically chronic lower back pain.

Weight Loss Eases Back Pain



Along with chiropractic care, engaging in physical activity or exercise can contribute to long-term increase in spinal health. Besides helping in weight loss, exercise and physical activity is a great way to strengthen the core muscles as well as ensure the proper distribution of the body’s weight throughout the spine. Stronger muscles, less weight, and a better posture will provide stunning long-term benefits for chiropractic patients that suffer from back pain.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor.
