you can have low back pain that is really “referred pain” due to other problems in the body. Many internal abdominal disorders – such as appendicitis, aneurysms, kidney diseases, bladder infections, pelvic infections and ovarian disorders, amongst others – can cause pain referred to the back. Note that many of the following are rare, or occur in conjunction with other obvious symptoms. So if you suspect “referred pain” always check in with your doctor to rule out serious problems. Some of the most common causes of lower back pain due to other problems (referred pain) in the body include: Kidney stones Cancer of the prostate Stomach infections Parasites Pancreatitis Gall Stones Peptic Ulcers Inflammation of the pelvic organs Occlusion of the aorta or main arteries
Sometimes Conditions or diseases of the reproductive organs in the pelvis may cause lower back pain. In women, endometriosis and fibroids in the uterus are two of the most common causes. If endometriosis is the condition, there may be pain in the low abdominal area before or during periods, and better afterwards. Some women will have painful sexual intercourse, or pain with urination or bowel movements related to problems in the female reproductive organs. Enlargement of the uterus due to the growth fibroids may also cause an aching or dull lower back pain by pressing on the muscles and nerves of the low back. Fibroids may cause a feeling of heaviness or pressure in the pelvic region, frequent urination, and a sometimes a sensation of rectal pressure with bowel movements. Unusually long or heavy menstrual periods are common, and may cause anemia. Although not as common, men could also have low back pain due to their reproductive organs. For example, prostatitis, a bacterial infection, can start in the prostate gland surrounding the urethra; in one of the testes, the infection is called orchitis. The mumps virus can be the cause of an infection in the system and may result in long-lasting fertility problems. The most common reproductive problems that cause low back pain include: 1 Endometriosis 2 Fibroids 3 Prostatitis 4 Trauma from gynecological operations 5 Prolapse of the Ute
The most common cause of lower back pain is a muscle strain or soft tissue problem. This includes loss of flexibility, mobility, strength and or damage to the muscles, ligaments and tendons in and around the structures of your spine.
It’s no secret that humans are spending more and more time indoors. As a species, we were genetically selected to be running around, hunting animals, chasing deer, climbing rocks, picking berries and walking great distances every day. Today, we are sitting at workstations for several hours at a time, standing all day long on hard concrete or wood surfaces and staring at screens in poor postural positions, sitting, staring down at phones and hunched in front of a work station for most of the day.
Because of our daily habits and routines, we are not getting the amount of movement necessary to keep our muscles, ligaments and tendons strong, flexible and healthy. Eventually this leads to structural imbalances in our muscles and of course low back pain.
Are you deficient in vitamin b12
In India, 60-70% of the population is believed to have lower vitamin B12 blood levels, with nearly 80% of urban middle class having this deficiency. Low levels of vitamin B12 contribute to the higher incidence of vascular diseases and with low folate levels accounting for higher prevalence of hyperhomocysteinemia, (characterised by high levels of protein, homocysteine in the blood ) among Indians. Hence, vitamin B12 & folate are essential for heart health.
Alert: 8 out 10 Indians are vitamin B12 deficient
Most surprising to the researchers was the fact that low B12 levels were as common in younger peopleas they were in the elderly. B12 deficiency is often missed for two reasons. • It’s not routinely tested by most physicians. • The conventional serum B12 test that most doctors run only picks up a small fraction of people who are actually B12 deficient. This test measures the total amount of B12 in the blood and does not rule out functional B12 deficiency, which means low levels of active B12. The low end of the laboratory reference range for serum B12 is too low. Many people who are B12 deficient have so-called normal levels of B12. For example, the lab reference range goes down to 211 pg/mL in most cases,
If You Want To Improve Performance- You Need To Learn How To Rest. There are two sides of fitness and performance – working OUT (exercise) and working IN (rest and recovery). your body requires regular tune ups. The good news is that we all come upgraded with our own self-tuner (the brain), yet all the “self-tuning” depends on the type of daily programming (movement and stimulation of the spine) that many of our “tuners” are out of whack. “These are natural positions for the human animal. If your body doesn’t work the way a body should, movement will suffer.” 5 Resting Positions that Improve Performance What we haven’t explored, is how super-simple and effective it is to incorporate ground time in your day-to-day life to also improve performance. I argue that floor sitting requires no additional time in your day and yes – you can do it at work. This practice requires no change in your day to day activities including: reading, eating, watching Netflix, typing up TPS reports or studying. Floor sitting integrates seamlessly into your time outside the gym with amazing benefits to joint health. Even miniscule changes in body position create a change in joint loading.

Sports chiropractors take a multidisciplinary approach to treat their patients. They also have an extensive knowledge of sports and sports-related injuries. This means that they’re uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat an athlete’s body without the use of drugs or invasive surgical procedures. Because chiropractic medicine is defined by its “hands on” approach to healing and the belief in caring for the entire body, it’s becoming an increasingly popular way to stay in the game without relying on drugs or surgeries. Sports chiropractic is a highly specialized field that typically focuses on professional or aspiring athletes. If you don’t spend a good portion of your life participating in a sport, you probably don’t require that level of specialized care. Your local chiropractic team is trained in the same type of spinal manipulation and pain relief techniques as a sports chiropractor, and can perform the same techniques as a specialist. They’re also able to offer a more general approach to your overall health.
#1 Chiropractic Improved Movement and Response Time
In a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, individuals who received chiropractic care noted a nearly 10% increase in improved movement and response time compared to those not under chiropractic care!

Diastasis symphysis pubis is the separation of normally joined pubic bones, as in the dislocation of the bones, without a fracture. Excessive lateral or anterior movement can be seen secondary to pubic diastasis and this can further lead to pubic symphysis dysfunction.External forces such as falling from a horse or a car accident can result in this type of injury to the symphysis pubis. Under hormonal stimulation during pregnancy, there is widening of the symphysis pubis and the sacroiliac joints. Diastasis wider than 15 mm is considered subdislocation and is generally associated with pain, swelling, and occasionally deformity. It is most commonly associated with pregnancy and childbirth, though trauma may occasionally be a culprit. In general, one in four women are affected, to a varying degree. The reported prevalence of nontraumatic diastasis varies from 1 in 300 pregnancies to 1 in 30,000 pregnancies. The inter pubic cartilaginous disc and the anterior pubic ligament are the most important structures maintaining stability of the joint. The physiologic width of the normal cleavage differs with age, ranging from 10mm at the age of 3, to 6mm at 20 ye
Ankylosing Spondylitis is in inflammatory disease which affects more men than women. In this, the vertebrae in your back tend to fuse together causing a hunched posture and lack of flexibility. In some cases, ribs may also get affected causing difficulty in breathing.

Early signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis might include pain and stiffness in your lower back and hips, especially in the morning and after periods of inactivity. Neck pain and fatigue also are common. Over time, symptoms might worsen, improve or stop at irregular intervals. The main presenting complaints in the early stages are lower back pain with morning stiffness that often wares off dur

Women perform most of the household and childcare responsibilities, regardless of their employment status. Women are better communicators and compromisers. A Modern Woman defines herself separate from stereotypes. She is introspective, brave and intelligent enough to know her own strengths and weaknesses. She acts to maximize her strengths and minimize her weaknesses.
Well! That’s great! Women are being independent.
With doing all household work, Childbirth, childcare responsibilities, family responsibilities, jobs, they never take care of their own body and that’s why they start getting body related complications as age increase.
Read Full article to understand how women get more spine related complications than men and how chiropractic treatment can helps you.
Benefits Chiropractic Care Taking good care of the spine means paying attention to the health of your central nervous system. 1. Relieve Stress Having your whole system out of sync can lead to physical and mental stress. If your spine is not properly aligned, it can mean that your skeletal and muscular systems are also in a poor position. After the chiropractor performs a spinal adjustment, tension in the body decreases allowing you to successfully manage stress. 82% of participants in the spinal manipulation group experienced reductions of pain. (Source) 2. Align Your Posture Due to the excessive use of handheld mobile devices, people are developing neck problems much earlier in life. Most forget to assume proper posture hunching over their desktop or phone for longer periods affecting their posture overtime. With consistent chiropractic care and physical therapy, there is a great possibility that the curves and tilting of the spine will be corrected. This is ideal for people who are feeling neck pain possibly due to an improperly curved neck. Both spinal adjusting and side-posture positioning produced increased separation (gapping) of the Z joints. This in turn helps to align your posture. (Source) 3. Enhance the Mood Once your body has been adjusted, finding the balance of your system typically follows. This
