As a general rule, lumbar discs are very hardy. It is difficult to injure them and most people who do suffer this type of pain have a long history of back problems which have lead up to the disc injury. They may also have poor postural or structural configurations in their spine that have predisposed their injury and can be addressed with proper treatment and exercise.
Chiropractic is at the forefront of postural and structural correction, so if you do suffer pain of this type, do yourself a favour and give your chiropractor – or us – a call.
(Again, pain of this type can come from other, even more serious causes and should always be investigated.)
