Lower Back Pain Relief | Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain
If you suffer from lower back pain, know that you are certainly not alone. More than 80% of people in the United States will suffer from some form of lower back pain in their lifetime. Our backs are responsible for almost every move we make. This can make it vulnerable to injury that can cause painful and annoying lower back pain. With knowledgeable care and expert treatment, you can be treated and find relief.
Lower back pain is most often caused by joint dysfunction. Symptoms can range from a dull ache to shooting pain. Limited range of motion and the inability to stand straight is common in people with lower back problems. Some lower back pain may be combined with pain that extends into the leg, proceeding down below the knee. This type of problem is called sciatica because the sciatic nerve (the main nerve to the leg) is being pinched or irritated by pressure.
The type of chiropractic treatment used to handle lower back pain really depends on the underlying cause of the pain. Lower back pain treatments, including gentle spinal manipulations and adjustments can be performed to ease discomfort and trauma in muscles, ligaments and tendons surrounding your spine. These treatments can reduce muscles spasms, thus lessening the pain and helping to restore normal function.
Chiropractic care can help your body to heal on it’s own, without major surgery. Contact the professionals at Wellspring Chiropractic and Rehabilitation and find out how we can help you eliminate your lower back pain gently and effectively.
