Low Back Pain is Not Limited to Adults
It is often pointed out that up to 80% of adults experience back pain during the course of their lives. While this statistic may cause many to think that the problem is largely age-related, the fact is that children suffer from low back pain as well. According to epidemiological studies, about one-third of children and adolescents experience low back pain at some point in their young lives. However, a recent study involving nearly 3,000 patients reveals that, in the case of three-quarters of adolescents with mechanical low back pain, the source is non-specific and self-resolving. This finding argues for a minimalist approach, which chiropractic care can provide. Even in 7% of cases involving spondylosis (spinal osteoarthritis), the conservative approach is preferred.
