Mehmet Oz, M.D., better known as Dr. Oz on television told show viewers Thursday that licensed chiropractors can help 80 percent of people with back pain.
He said twenty-two million Americans make “chiropractic” visits each year for spinal manipulations to have their backs adjusted. Chiropractic is a Greek word meaning done by hand.
If your spine gets out of alignment, this causes pressure on the discs and nerves. That pressure results in back pain.
To prevent back pain, strengthen your core muscles. This helps your back muscles function without as much pressure on the spine.
Ask your doctor what exercises would be best for you so you don’t hurt your spine, head or neck muscles.
