Low Back Pain:
Yes, if you are hit by a mack truck, your low back pain may be entirely structural. In this case any good adjustment will do. If the low back pain keeps returning with repeated spinal adjustments there is another factor involved. This is also true for people who have low back pain for apparently no reason. Or someone who says, "I just bent over to pick up a pencil and my back went out."

Low back pain can also be caused by:
