Low Back Pain Relief Through Chiropractic Care
Low back pain is one of the most common complaints among people of all ages. It can make every move you make challenging, whether you’re working, trying to sleep, hanging out with loved ones, shopping for groceries, or anything in between. Learn below how chiropractic care with Dr. Logan at Logan Chiropractic Center in Warren, MI, can provide the low back pain relief you seek.
Common Causes of Low Back Pain
Attaining and maintaining relief from pain begins with understanding why you’re experiencing it in the first place. Typically, pain in the lower back comes from one of the following:
- Overuse injuries
- Herniated discs
- Nerve compression
- Muscle tension
- Ongoing conditions, such as spinal stenosis, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis
There are various factors that contribute to these injuries, conditions, and causes, including but not limited to:
- Being overweight
- Being overly active
- Being sedentary
- Accidents, such as auto accidents, sports accidents, and work-related accidents
- Poor posture
- Improper lifting techniques
- Being on your feet for long periods, especially without proper support
Treatments for Low Back Pain
Treatment plans are customized to the patient's needs and may include any of the following.
Adjustments and manipulation help restore alignment to the spinal column. This relieves undue pressure on the discs, nerves, and muscles.
Various issues, including poor posture, can cause the spinal column to compress. This puts unnecessary pressure on the discs, muscles, and other soft tissues. By gently stretching the spine and creating space between the vertebrae, traction and decompression therapy naturally relieve these symptoms and restore spinal health.
Tension, scar tissue, and trigger points can be deep in the soft tissues. These can cause great pain and restricted motion but can be difficult to treat since it’s so deep. Ultrasound therapy sends sound waves into the tissues, penetrating even the deepest layers.
Low back pain and the injuries that cause it are often due to weakened and tense areas of muscle. Therapeutic exercises are stretching and strengthening movements that target such issues.
Nutritional and Lifestyle Counseling
While chiropractic techniques are effective, it’s vital to address the habits – or lack thereof – that contributed to your pain. Lifestyle and nutritional recommendations help to address these issues, enhancing your healing and preventing similar future pain.
