Low Back Pain

In our practice, we see a number of patients every day who are dealing with the same symptoms that you are. A disc issue or irritation is one possible cause. The other common problem is improper facet loading, referring to the vertebral joints. Natural wear and tear on these joints can cause pain over time. Muscle strains or activities that cause excess movement of the spine, such as rotating or bending the spine backward, twisting, and lifting, may also increase irritation.

Listen to Your Body

Any time you’re having back pain, it’s a sign something is wrong. Your body is letting you know something is not acting or moving correctly, especially if it occurs more than once. The earlier you get a diagnosis and understand where the problem is coming from, the better off you are in the long term. Chronic facet or disc irritation may lead to arthroscopy, disc degeneration, and other serious problems.

What to Expect

As with any issue, patients with low back pain must undergo an in-depth evaluation to determine the root cause of their pain—we don’t just treat symptoms. Once we have a diagnosis, a care plan is designed to address your situation.

It will consist of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work to release the tight muscles around the areas, evaluating any patterns of weakness found in the exam, and incorporating some kind of rehab to strengthen and stabilize the surrounding areas.

If treatment goals include building strength, once you have met your goal, at-home exercises are provided to allow you to keep that strength, maintain your back, and stay healthy.

Adjunct Therapies

Using the services of our licensed massage therapist is one way to address soft tissue issues. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) therapeutic measures help relieve soft tissue pain. Techniques like dry needling, shockwave and other measures are used in our office to combat muscle compensation and tightness often seen with low back pain. We have a very high rate of success in resolving back pain issues.

A Different Approach

People who come to our office don’t just receive chiropractic adjustments. Once we have a firm diagnosis of your condition, we put together a plan for overall wellness, and provide the tools you need to manage your health. Chiropractic becomes a more preventative strategy, instead of a tool for pain management.
