Part 3: Lumbar Health

Taking medication might seem like the only solution when you’re dealing with stubborn
symptoms, but did you know chiropractic care can help? The nerves that travel through the
lumbar (low-back) section of your spine control many of your vital organs, and misalignments in
that area can be the culprits of many painful issues. Here are our top four health issues caused
by misaligned vertebrae in the lumbar area and how chiropractic can help you get relief:

1. CONSTIPATION

When your nerves are pinched and can’t send signals they way they were designed to, all kinds
of problems can form. Taking laxatives may help the problem temporarily, but often times that
doesn’t address the real cause of the problem. No matter what is causing your constipation,
unlocking your body’s potential to communicate with the muscles and cells in your gut can really
improve frustrating symptoms!

2. ULCERATIVE COLITUS

Ulcerative colitus is a condition where there are painful sores in the large intestine, often
because the body’s immune system is attacking the bacteria found there. When a chiropractor
removes the interference, the body can be able to send correct signals and not battle itself
anymore!

3. MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS

Many important nerves for reproductive function are found in the lumbar area of the spine, and if
there are misalignments blocking the nerve’s ability to communicate, it can result in many
different problems and greater amounts of pain. Many menstrual problems such as intense
cramping and irregular periods can be greatly helped and reduced by regular chiropractic care!

4. LOW BACK PAIN

If you’re having low back pain and have to take a pain pill, the problem isn’t that your body is
deficient in pain medication, right? The real problem lies with the structural misalignment in your
spine. Having a chiropractor correct those misalignments can relieve your low back pain
long-term, rather than the short-term relief of medications.
With routine examinations and adjustments, your chiropractor will be able to begin correcting
the effects of pinched nerves and misaligned vertebrae in the lumbar area of your spine. If you
have been experiencing any of these symptoms, taking medication may just be covering up the
problem, not fixing it. Be sure to reach out to us here at Revelation Chiropractic we can help you
begin experiencing the effects of better health immediately!
