Lower Back Pain-Unlock Your Hip Flexors
A few interesting facts about back pain:
- One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.
- Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
- Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic: meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
- Americans spend at least billion each year on back pain and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.
Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.
What Causes Back Pain?
The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain.
Even though sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements, for example, picking up a pencil from the floor can have painful results.
In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain. Back pain can also directly result from diseases of the internal organs, such as kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss.
It may surprise you to learn that back pain affects some 80% of Americans at some time in their lives. So you’re not alone.
The causes range from genetic issues to injury, to disease and stress, but all back pain sufferers share one thing in common, they want relief and they want it NOW!

Back Pain Testimonials
All that I can say is; Wow! I never knew what Chiropractic could achieve with the right Dr… When I first consulted Dr. Sclafani for back pain, I had been affected with this for over 10 years. I had been to Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapist and even other Chiropractic Dr.s. The key to Dr. Sclafani approach was to listen to me! I find now that years after first seeing Dr. Sclafani, that his listening and teaching me what my condition was all about, was as important his treatment. This has literally changed my life as I do not have back pain constantly anymore. My condition does continue to talk to me, as Dr. Sclafani explained, it will from time to time because I have a form of arthritis that most people get and I waited too long to address it properly. Even though I have degenerative discs in my lumbar spine, I feel great most of the time since I have been receiving treatment. I know what stretches and exercise to perform, and I know if I do them and come in for maintenance, I will be just fine! I can lift my grandchildren, play golf with my family and friends and even do the gardening.
