Lower Back Pain: Time to See the Chiropractor?

By Sara Butler

There's a famous quote that says there are only a few things guaranteed by life: death and taxes. In modern times there's one more certainty that can be added -- lower back pain.

Lower back pain happens quite a bit. According to the American Chiropractic Association, you have an 8 in 10 chance of experiencing it at some point in your life. So, it's a good idea to know when your back pain needs the attention of the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Here are a few of the signs that you need to get your back pain addressed by a professional.

Sign No. 1: It's Not Just Muscular

The muscles in your back work hard to support your spine as well as the rest of the body, so it's not uncommon to experience muscle discomfort in the form of strained or sprained muscles from time to time. However, if you feel the pain is coming from the joints of the spine or the nerves, then it needs to be addressed by a professional.

If you're unsure where your pain is stemming from, then a quick visit to the chiropractor should be on your to-do list. They can find the root cause of your pain and discomfort and address it, no matter where it's coming from.

Sign No. 2: You Have Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve

Nerve pain is incredibly uncomfortable -- and something you should not ignore. It's unfortunately not uncommon to have a nerve become irritated or pinched in the lower back since there are so many structures squeezed close together that can easily become irritated or even injured.

Most of the time, nerve pain is sharp pain. It's also pain that becomes worse when you move a certain way. You may also experience symptoms of nerve issues including:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pain that travels down the arms or the legs

Chiropractic treatment can be incredibly effective for back pain involving nerves and the earlier you address the issue, the better off you'll be.

Sign No. 3: Other Treatment Haven't Worked

When people experience back pain they may reach for ice or heat or take over-the-counter pain medication to help. If you've tried stretching, massage, heat, ice, and even pain relievers and they have not helped, then it's time to get to the chiropractor.

Back pain is a problem for many people, so let the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic help.
