As one of the most common forms of musculoskeletal pain, lower back pain can be the result of many issues. For individuals who have been in an auto accident or suffered a sports injury, they may experience herniated discs or torn muscles leading to back pain. If you have a job that requires you to sit at a desk or behind a steering wheel for hours on end, this can lead to undue pressure on the lower spine. Lower back pain is a common result of this chronic lifestyle choice.
When you have lower back pain, you may be unable to sit up or stand without assistance. You may feel like laying on the flat ground is the most comfortable position to be in. The lower back area will likely be hot, red, and possibly swollen. This is caused by inflammation of the muscle tissue, which causes lower back pain. You might also feel a throbbing pain throughout your lower back.
A visit to the chiropractor for treatment for your lower back pain is a welcomed relief. We are able to identify the source of the back pain, whether it is inflamed tissue, torn muscles, or herniated discs. From there we can provide you with spinal adjustments that offer immediate pain relief. We can also adjust the musculoskeletal system so that your lower back begins to heal from the injury or condition causing the pain.
Other treatments we offer for lower back pain include dry needling to induce circulation and reduce inflammation. To continue the treatment after you leave our office, we will provide you with corrective exercises to help you realign your spine and protect your lower back from future injuries.
