Finding Relief from Back Pain

Did you know that over 80% of the population will sustain low back pain at some point in their lives?


Low back pain is a common condition that can have a variety of causes, including muscle strain, ligament sprains, herniated discs, poor posture, and underlying medical conditions. Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who focus on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, often through manual manipulation of the spine and other joints, utilizing physical therapy modalities, stretching, and massage to achieve relief and restoration to optimal low back health.


Chiropractors often use spinal adjustments, also known as spinal manipulation, as a primary treatment technique for low back pain. This involves applying controlled force to specific joints to improve alignment, and range of motion, and reduce pain. The goal is to alleviate pressure on nerves and promote healing. However, it's important to note that spinal manipulation may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions or risk factors.


Chiropractic physicians often prescribe specific exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles supporting the spine and improve flexibility. These exercises can aid in recovery and help prevent future episodes of low back pain.


Chiropractic treatment may guide proper posture, body mechanics, and ergonomic modifications to daily activities (e.g., sitting at a desk, or lifting objects) to reduce strain on the back and prevent the recurrence of pain.


Lifestyle factors can also contribute to low back pain, such as weight management, hydration, and proper nutrition. And depending on the severity and underlying cause of your low back pain, your chiropractor may recommend collaborating with other healthcare professionals to provide a well-rounded and comprehensive approach to your care.
