Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
For people suffering from lower back pain, there can be many causes that make it difficult to find the best treatment. Some causes of lower back pain involve the back muscles that support the back and help during lifting. Improper lifting techniques and prior injuries such as sports or overuse injuries can all lead to lower back pain.
Other causes of lower back pain include issues with spinal health. Certain spinal problems can lead to lower back pain. These include herniated discs and bulging discs. These are conditions that affect the discs that act as cushions for the vertebrae in the spine. Sciatica is another common condition that impacts the lower back, causing shooting pain from the lower back to the lower extremities.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
There are many different causes of lower back pain, meaning you must find the right cause to provide the most effective treatment. Our chiropractor will develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs and unique body. They will develop this plan by conducting a physical exam along with imaging tests and asking you questions about your pain.
A chiropractor can initiate chiropractic treatments such as muscle massages, chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, soundwave therapy, and trigger point therapy, among others. Your chiropractor will inform you of the length of time needed to fully find relief from your lower back pain.
