Lower back pain can derail your day. Not only can it be difficult to do the activities you love, but even simple movements can be painful. You may find it hard to walk, stand, or even sit for extended periods. Luckily, lower back pain can be cured through chiropractic care. The team at Injury Health Center is here to help eliminate your lower back pain through effective and safe treatment options.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can come from several different sources. For some, lower back pain is caused by poor posture, or from sitting too long in front of a computer screen for work. For others, lower back pain stems from an immediate injury. This could be a fracture, sprain, or strain. Usually, injuries are sudden or acute and the patient can accurately pinpoint what is causing the lower back pain. For others, lower back pain comes from a degenerative condition or disease. This could be arthritis, osteoporosis, or spinal stenosis. Herniated discs can also cause lower back pain if they are herniated near the lower back region.
Back Pain Symptoms
Everyone experiences pain in a different way, and lower back pain is no different. For some, lower back pain is sharp and stabbing. This is usually the case with more acute injuries. For others, it can be a dull and aching pain. With several different diseases and conditions, it is common to have numbness and tingling accompany your back pain. For lower back pain, the numbness and tingling can extend into the buttocks, legs, and feet.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors can provide safe and non-invasive treatment options to cure your back pain. Chiropractic care can restore balance and harmony to the body, aligning the muscular and skeletal systems. When the body is properly aligned, pain is reduced or eliminated. To do this, a chiropractor may use one or several combined techniques. This can include manual manipulation, physical therapy, heat therapy, or stretching and strengthening exercises. Each patient requires a specialized treatment plan custom created to suit the injury or medical condition.
