Hello everyone. I’m Dr. Tom Johnson from Kalani Total Health Center, your chiropractor for low back pain in Oxnard, CA. Today, I wanna speak to you about the world’s leading cause of pain and disability today.
What is it, you ask? I’m glad you’re here to find out. Let’s get started. The answer is low back pain and spinal disorders are the number one cause of pain and disability in the entire world today.
Nothing even comes close. Think about that for a second. Nothing even comes close to the degree of pain and disability and health problems in the entire world that low back pain and spinal disorder causes.
It’s the most common type of pain and disability in health, globally. Yes. I said it: globally! There is nothing even close.
Low back pain affects people of all walks of life; men, women, children, teenagers, young adults, older adults, senior citizens, people from a wide range of social, economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. It shows no preference. We are all equally affected. It can happen to anybody.
Low back pain can severely interfere with your quality of life, and your basic activities of daily living from simply putting on your clothes, to cooking food, to taking a shower, to get in the car, to going to work, to playing sports, to just simply moving, and putting on your shoes.
Low back pain is a major global health problem but yet it is rarely reported. You rarely see it in the news, the media, the newspapers, social media, even our public health officials and our doctors aren’t really talking about the degree of disability that low back pain and spinal disorders causes.
This is unacceptable. And that’s why I’m here today. I’m here to inform you of the truth. The truth is that you, your family, your loved ones, need to know the truth and how important your spine is and to what degree of disability and pain that your spinal problems can cause you in your life.
It’s extremely important. Many scientists, doctors, government officials, and public health officials, still claim that the cause of low back pain is unclear, that there’s simply some risk factors associated with it. You, maybe you will get it; maybe not.
This is the same lies they’ve been telling us for a hundred years.
Now, yes, there are certain risk factors. There’s no denying that, but we know exactly what’s causing low back pain and spinal disorders. That is irrefutable. I know exactly what’s causing it. And I’m here today to tell you what that is.
Low back pain and spinal disorders are so common, with all of us, for one reason. It’s simple. We all have a spine, from children to adults. We all have a spine. If you have a spine, you can be affected by low back pain and spinal disorders.
And again, that’s the world’s number one leading cause of disability and pain. Low back pain is the leading cause of work related injuries, and missed times from work, too. This results in a global economic crisis.
Again, all resulting back to a simple, low back pain and spinal disorder, but it’s not so simple, is it, now that you know the truth? But I’m here to tell you we knew exactly what causes low back pain. We knew exactly how to fix it, too.
They’re so common but we need to be more well aware of it. Low back pain and spinal disorders can be acute, meaning like, “Hey, it’s a brand new injury.” It can be subacute, you know, the injury happened maybe two to four weeks ago. Or it can be chronic, anything over three to six months, and many times for us, it’s many years of chronic, low back pain and spinal disorders.
Low back pain is very important to treat and diagnose early, because it’s easier to treat if the sooner we diagnose and treat it the easier it is to treat it and resolve it. But if we let it linger, if we let it continue, and degenerate, and progress, now it gets to the point where it’s surgical.
And that’s what we’re trying to prevent. Yes, we can prevent spinal surgeries as long as we catch it early and treat it early witl conservative measured chiropractic. I know exactly what causes low back pain and spinal disorders.
The cause is clear and simple. Low back pain is caused by pain generators in the muscles, the tendons, the ligaments, the spinal disc, the spinal nerves, the spinal arteries and veins, the vasculature, the fascia, there’s scar tissue, there’s movement disorders, posture disorders, nerve compression; the list goes on and on and on.
We can summarize all those factors into one word, subluxation, the subluxation complex. All those factors and pain generators are associated with the subluxation of the low back in the lumbar spine. That’s what causes your low back pain.
But you won’t hear that from anyone else because they’re hiding the truth. They don’t want you to know the truth. They wanna keep you loaded on medications, and unnecessary surgeries. Well here I am today to tell you, we know the cause of it. We know how to fix it, conservatively, without medications, without surgeries.
And that’s what I want you to know today.
When it comes to choosing your healthcare providers, experience counts. Experience counts. Together we’ll get to the core root of your low back pain and spinal disorders, instead of this simply covering up with unnecessary medications, right?
We want to fix the core cause of your low back pain and spinal disorder so it doesn’t lead to disability and the way it has today throughout the world.
Again, we specialize in the diagnosis, the examination, the treatment, and rehabilitation, of spinal disorders and low back pain. Again, I’m Dr. Tom Johnson from Kalani Total Health Center, your one-stop shop, Mahalo and Aloha.
Thanks for joining me today y’all.
