Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common struggles for American adults. Low back pain can have negative effects on your mobility, productivity, and quality of life. Fortunately, our team at SoCal Neck and Back Injury Center offers several types of chiropractic techniques and natural treatment methods that not only help treat lower back pain but reduce the chances of reoccurrence. We help patients experience natural relief from lower back pain and other conditions.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
One of the most common causes of lower back pain we see is muscle strain. If you lift heavy things for work or perform strenuous activities regularly, then you have a higher risk for this kind of injury.
Herniated discs can also cause pain. The spine has soft disks that act as cushions in between vertebrae. Sometimes, a disc will slip out of place. As a result, they can cause pain, numbness, and tingling. Herniated discs can also cause arm or leg pain when left untreated. Herniated discs often lead to sciatica, which is a condition that occurs when a herniated disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica causes radiating pain across the lower back, hip, buttock, and leg.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help
We use hand-on adjustments to realign slipped or herniated discs for optimal relief. Spinal misalignments are also common culprits of lower back pain. We use chiropractic care to effectively realign the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic treatments can reduce pressure on affected areas of the spine, which can help reduce muscle spasms and alleviate nerve pain. We also provide physical therapy and other forms of therapy to treat patients suffering from lower back pain.
Other Lower Back Pain Treatment Options
We often combine our chiropractic care with other natural therapies for optimal results. After a thorough assessment of your condition, we can recommend what combination of chiropractic care and treatment methods is best for your current situation. We often recommend various therapies, including:
- Acupuncture - We use a Korean style of acupuncture that only places needles on the hands and ears. This treatment can stimulate endorphin release, promote healing, and help the body restore overall balance.
- Massage therapy - Bodies heal best when they're relaxed, and massage therapy provides that relaxation. Massage therapy can also help reduce tension in strained muscles.
- PEMF - This treatment promotes cellular healing with electromagnetic pulses. We often use PEMF to boost healing after an injury.
