Low back pain: Low back pain is typically characterized by localized pain or stiffness in the low back. When unaccompanied by radiating nerve pain, it is relatively simple to treat in many cases, particularly when it is of acute and recent origin. Chronic cases can be more complex, usually when the history involves repeated insults to the lower back over time. Another complication is repeated irritation due to work or play.
Often, a patient needs to relearn how to perform seemingly routine actions in order to hold an adjustment, as illustrated in my brochure, How to Avoid Subluxating Yourself.
