Low Back Pain and Chiropractic Treatment

Medical experts will tell you that the most common causes for low back pain relate to soft tissue injury and mechanical issues.

For example, you might have suffered damage to the discs between the vertebrae of the lower spine and this is causing pain, or you might have moved improperly and now have serious pain in the back.

In fact, torn or pulled ligaments and/or muscles are among the most common causes behind lower back pain. Yet, a disc issue cannot be ruled out, nor can degenerative diseases that can include arthritis, spinal stenosis, fracture and joint dysfunction.

The good news is that chiropractors are adept at working with patients to identify the symptoms and then the underlying causes.

Understand Your Back Pain

All of this can seem very confusing to the person with low back pain. They may not fully understand just precisely when or why the pain began.

The only thing most who suffer with severe or ongoing low back pain is that they would like alleviation of the symptoms. Yet, it is very helpful to really understand just what is going on.

For the most part, back pain relates to pressures on the spine. As we already said, it could be due to something like a muscle tear that is now pulling the spine out of its normal alignment or to the degradation of bone or tissue in the spine that is allowing for pressure on the nerves of the spine itself.

This pressure, inflammation, irritation and pain can often be addressed through non-surgical intervention, particularly chiropractic adjustments and manipulations.

We focus on first assessing the situation and then discussing the use of proper adjustments and manipulations along with home exercises and alternatives, including massage to ensure the cause of the pain is fully addressed over the long and short term.
