Low Back Pain…yeah we do that.

It may come as a surprise, but after authoring some 46 Spinal Column articles over the past 5 years, I have yet to dedicate one to the condition that we chiropractors most often see — low back pain.  Sure, I’ve made reference to it many times, but I’ve never given it the spotlight.  Perhaps, that’s exactly what I have been afraid of — giving it the “spotlight.”  Much of the media and scientific journals have made lower back pain and chiropractic one and same.  And while we are grateful for the validation and coverage, many in our profession, and rightfully so, are afraid that we might get pigeon-holed into becoming known as “low back doctors” when chiropractic really has so much more to offer.

I remember in my first year of chiropractic college that one of our assignments was to ask three complete strangers to explain what a chiropractor does.
