Lower back pain can impact just about every part of daily life. Suddenly bending, twisting, or even walking can become painful. Lower back pain can come from several different sources, which can be difficult to diagnose. Luckily, Chaney Chiropractic Clinic is an excellent, non-invasive treatment option to help with lower back pain. Let's examine this in more detail and learn how a chiropractor can help.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can come from several different sources but is usually either acute or chronic pain. Acute pain occurs suddenly, usually a result of a trauma or injury. An injury can impact the bones in the vertebrae or may impact the soft tissues and muscles surrounding the spine in the lower back. An injury could be caused by anything including a fall or an automobile accident. Chronic lower back pain typically develops from an existing condition or disease. This could be anything from osteoarthritis, to spinal stenosis. Furthermore, several disc diseases can cause lower back pain.
What Are the Symptoms?
Aside from the most obvious symptom of pain, several accompanying symptoms often go hand and hand with lower back pain. Depending on the injury or the disease, a person may experience a limited range of motion. Also, a person may experience numbness and tingling, both at the site of the back pain and in the outer extremities. It is not uncommon for the numbness to occur in the buttocks, legs, and even feet with a lower back injury. The numbness and tingling might also cause a person to feel clumsy, tripping more than usual.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor can offer safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment options for lower back pain. Chiropractics work around the philosophy that the body must be aligned to work in harmony, pain-free. To achieve this, a chiropractor has many tools at his or her disposal. After a full evaluation, the chiropractor will suggest one, or several treatment options. Common treatment plans include manual manipulation, physical therapy, stretching, strengthening exercises, medical massages, and heat therapy to help alleviate lower back pain.
