Causes of Lower Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors. One common factor is osteoarthritis, which causes gradual degeneration in the joints in your spine. When the spinal joints degenerate, this results in increased friction, inflammation, and lower back pain. An injury from lifting heavy items or an auto accident can also cause back pain. Even a minor rear-end collision may generate enough force to injure the back. In addition, excess weight and poor posture can contribute to your pain and discomfort.
Treatment for Back Pain
Chiropractic care can be highly beneficial for lower back pain. Before you begin your treatment, our chiropractor will perform some tests to determine the cause of your pain. Afterward, we will utilize a variety of tools and techniques to address the problem.
Our chiropractor can use spinal adjustments if your back pain is due to an injury. The adjustments can help reduce the excess strain caused by the injury. Along with that, spinal decompression can treat discomfort caused by osteoarthritis. Our chiropractor will gently stretch your spinal joints to help ease the inflation and friction from osteoarthritis. We may also recommend and teach you exercises that will strengthen your back. You can implement the exercises into your daily routine, which can help prevent injuries from reoccurring.
