Lower Back Pain & Care Chiropractic
You don’t have to be an avid sports athlete to experience lower back pain. It can take one heavy object being lifted, one misplaced step and you lose your balance, multiple years of poor posture, or even ignoring an injury you thought was nothing at first. The pain can be dull, like an ache, rather than stinging. You could also feel it in parts of your legs and feet. You may find that sitting for extensive periods of time causes more discomfort and that some positions feel worse than others. Pain could also start in the mornings and lessen throughout the day. All of these examples are symptoms of a lower back problem.
Lower back pain is most commonly caused from a strain (muscles) or sprain (ligaments). Regardless of muscle or ligament damage, the pain and treatment are quite similar. When the pain lasts longer than three months it is considered chronic. Chronic lower back pain often means there is a disc, joint, or nerve root problem. There are many possibilities for this and it is best to talk to your doctor more about specific symptoms so that they are able to run further tests to find the best treatment.
Many wait to be diagnosed until the pain is unbearable, and even then their doctor may only prescribe medication. However there are treatments for lower back pain that Care Chiropractic can help with when medication seems like a temporary fix. Spinal manipulation, also known as chiropractic adjustment, is one of the most common and highly recommended treatments for lower back pain. The main purpose is to improve functionality and reduce irritability. Chiropractic mobilization is another method that focuses on stretching and movement of muscles and joints with the goal being improving range of motion in the problem areas.
There are many other techniques that Care Chiropractic specializes in that can improve your lower back pain. It’s best to set up a consultation so that our team can figure your needs.
