Low Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
Low back pain is the most commonly reported type of chronic pain, with nearly 30% of people experiencing this often-debilitating discomfort in the last three months.
This type of pain can stem from a variety of causes, including:
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Slipped disc
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Cervical displaysia
Both mechanical and soft-tissue issues can contribute to the development of acute or chronic low back pain, which can range from mild to debilitating.
In addition, low back pain treatment is often over-the-counter and narcotic drugs, both of which can have varied, and dangerous, side effects.
Low Back Pain Treatment - How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Your chiropractor has extensive knowledge of how the muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons of your spine work together as a unit.
With a thorough exam, he’ll be able to pinpoint the root cause of your pain and formulate a care plan to help reduce pain and return your back to its normal, healthy function.
Chiropractic care most often includes a gentle spinal adjustment, which is a proven way to minimize or alleviate low back pain. Today’s chiropractors often accompany this adjustment with a variety of other effective therapies.
Because your chiropractor focuses on you holistically, he or she will most likely incorporate nutrition and exercise therapy into your plan. Many chiropractors also use therapy to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms.
Importantly, the chiropractic care plan for low back pain focuses on being safe, effective, and drug-free. Minimizing drug use exposes patients to fewer side effects and removes the risk of addiction to powerful narcotics.
