Chiropractic Relief for Low Back Pain

By Sara Butler

Low back pain is a common problem with many different causes. Luckily for you, your chiropractor has literally been schooled in low back pain; they understand what causes it and how it can be treated. If you’re one of the 31 million Americans who suffers from low back pain at any given time, then here’s what you need to know about this condition and how your chiropractor can help.

Symptoms Related to Low Back Pain

When you have low back pain you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Trigger points – These are areas that when pressure is placed on them cause acute muscle spasms and pain.
  • Muscle tightness – This can include muscle spasms.
  • Restricted range of motion – Most noticeable when twisting or bending.
  • Stabbing pain – Often starts in the back and radiates around to the front of the body.
  • Sciatica – This is pain that travels across the buttocks and down the leg, sometimes all the way to the toes.
  • Distorted rib cage – This is experienced as symptoms mimicking cardiac or respiratory issues such as irregular heartbeat or shortness of breath.
  • Knee problems- Yes, if you have low back pain you may experience knee pain as well!

What Causes Low Back Pain?

If you can’t trace your low back pain back to an injury, then the pain is usually biomechanical. This means that there is a malfunction in the joints of your spine, what your chiropractor may refer to as subluxations or misalignments of the bones of your spine. If you feel numbness, pain, or tingling down your leg, then this is an indication your body is not functioning properly. If you have irregular alignments in your spine or pelvis, then your lower back will compensate for those irregularities, resulting in pain.

If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer every day or driving long distances then you may notice an increase in the amount of lower back pain you experience on a daily basis. In some cases, your back pain can be the result of a problem associated with another system in your body such as the ovaries or uterus. Your chiropractor can identify the root cause of your back pain and help you find relief!

Your chiropractor can help you to restore a more normal range of motion in your back and also correct any spinal misalignments with chiropractic adjustments. It’s a simple approach that has been successful for a lot of people over the years, so if you are suffering from low back pain then come into The Joint for an evaluation today!
