What Causes Lower Back Pain?
There are several causes of lower back pain, ranging from as simple as sleeping wrong or twisting wrong, to simply muscle injuries that will heal in a few days. However, if your lower back pain continues to persist, does not get better over time with treatment, or happens suddenly, these can all be conditions that indicate a more serious injury.
Serious causes of lower back pain include herniated discs and pinched sciatic nerve. Herniated discs occur due to fluid leaking out from the discs between the vertebrae and compressing the surrounding nerves. They can also compress the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back to the outer legs in a condition known as sciatica.
However, muscle injuries such as pulled muscles in the lower back are also common. When not treated properly, re-injury can occur.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Our chiropractor will be able to provide treatment that is effective and natural at healing your lower back pain. We will determine the root cause of your pain by conducting a physical exam and imaging tests. Effective chiropractic care can consist of spinal decompression therapy, which is designed to place discs back into their proper position in your spinal column. Other treatments including manual adjustments to realign the spine, as well as muscle massages for injured lower back muscles.
