About Lower Back Pain
If you are experiencing lower back pain, you are not alone. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 80 percent of adults will experience lower back point at some point in their lives. Although everyone experiences lower back pain differently, common symptoms include a dull, constant aching or a sudden, sharp pain radiating in your lower back.
These symptoms can develop suddenly after an injury or gradually as you age. They can either last a few days or several weeks. Lower back pain is also more common in those who live a relatively sedentary lifestyle, but participate in strenuous, high-intensity weekend activities.
Our team of doctors can determine the cause of your lower back pain and administer the appropriate chiropractic care to provide the relief you need.
Lower back pain is most commonly caused by a:
- Bulging disk: Disks are composed of both soft and rigid cartilage that act as cushions between vertebrae. Over time, disks can begin to bulge outward, causing pain.
- Slipped disk: A slipped disk (also called a ruptured or herniated disk) occurs when the rigid exterior of a disk ruptures, allowing the softer cartilage to push outward. This is usually signaled by severe and sudden lower back pain.
- Strain: Muscle strain is the most common cause of lower back pain and occurs when the muscles in your lower back are stretched beyond their limits or torn.
During your consultation, our doctors can use advanced diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the cause of your lower back pain.
To determine which type of treatment will best address your lower back pain, we will first identify the cause of your pain. Based on our evaluation, we can offer a wide range of treatment options.
Chiropractic care is designed to heal your body without surgical intervention or medication. During your appointment, our doctors will realign your spine using gentle adjustment techniques.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
We offer advanced, non-surgical treatment of lower back pain using the DRX-9000 chiropractic table. Using this tool, our doctors can gently stretch your spine, creating a negative pressure that pulls a protruded disk back into place. The machine also lengthens the spine, reduces pressure on the injured discs, and increases nutrient flow to the injury site to promote healing.
The treatment involves multiple 45-minute sessions scheduled over several weeks.
