A Pain in the Lower Back
Back pain is one of the most common reasons people miss work or school. Lower back pain can range from a dull pain to sharp shooting pain that makes it difficult to move.
Lower back pain can be caused by:
- Skeletal irregularities like scoliosis and spina bifida
- Injuries like sprains, sports injuries, car accidents, and more
- Degenerative issues like discs wearing down
- Nerve and spinal cord problems like herniated or ruptured discs, spinal decompression, and more
Living with any lower back pain is just that: a pain! Our Chiropractors can help identify issues that could be causing your lower back pain. Regardless of your pain intensity, we are here to help.
Different Types of Pain
There are two types of back pain: acute and chronic. Both types cause discomfort, and can be caused by a myriad of reasons.
This type of lower back pain is short-lived. It can last from days to weeks, and can be caused by heavy lifting, sports injuries, twisting in the wrong direction, or numerous other factors. Acute lower back pain can sometimes resolve itself over time, but a chiropractor can apply a manual adjustment to aid in your healing process.
Chronic lower back pain is defined as lasting 12 weeks or longer, and develops as the result of an injury or ongoing acute pain. Around 20% of people who experience acute pain develop chronic pain that lasts longer than a year.
A chiropractor can help diagnose and treat lower back pain and assist in your relief from chronic pain. Using chiropractic therapies can often limit the need for prescription pain medications and get you back on your feet quicker. Our chiropractors can prescribe a treatment plan, combining massage therapy, physical rehabilitation techniques, lifestyle recommendations, stress management, and more.
