Many people definitely like staying in shape and one way of doing that is to do regular exercise including running. However, if you have an underlying lower back problem, doing this activity can cause injuries that can make your low back pain even worse or can lead to additional types of pain such as sciatica or leg pain. For runners, the most common cause of back pain is a muscular strain. Other contributing factors may include weak muscles in the abdomen and back, tight hamstrings, and imbalance between the feet or legs which leads to an imbalance in weight that can eventually result to low back pain. To find out what really causes your low back pain, setting up an appointment with your chiropractor is the right thing to do.
Chiropractors can be able to identify the proper areas involved with your low back pain due to running, and can provide necessary treatment appropriate for you. It is the aim of every chiropractor to restore the normal function to your joints, muscles, and your nervous system to increase control, coordination, and muscle strength. If you are a sports person, do not wait for pain to attack you or accidents to happen to you. Have some time to visit a chiropractor, or contact Dr. Steve Minors now.
