Lower back pain is a major problem in Camarillo. I've been a chiropractor for over 20 years and "the more things change, the more they stay the same."
Myself included, we've all got to do certain things to avoid lower back pain. To me, chiropractic is like dentistry....you'll use it now or need it later. Exercises for lower back pain are important. Five minutes a day of some bird dog exercises, planks, side planks and bridges is really all the average person needs. If you are an athlete, maybe more than that, but I think you would agree that we all should be spending five minutes a day on taking care of our teeth...why not our spine?
We have great teeth and terrible spines.
We've spent a lifetime going to the dentist and twice daily we do something for our teeth (brushing, floosing, etc).
For those that make an appointment, we will always try to show you how to take care of yourself, but you must meet us halfway and do it. About 60-70% of people never follow through. That accounts for a high failure rate. Lower back pain if not handled properly gets worse and often people end up having surgery.
