Low back pain is frequently caused by slack abdominal muscles, when one or more of the bones in your spine moves out of position, poor posture, pregnancy, bone or joint disease, cancer, arthritis, stress or specific working conditions.
Dr. Elder will treat low back pain by relieving your muscle spasms and improving the nerve supply and blood circulation to the affected area. With a pulled muscle, relief will come quickly but with stretched ligaments, relief will take longer.
