Lower back pain is the most common issue we see at Fremont Chiropractic Clinic in Fremont, NE. We offer many treatments to relieve your back pain and help you feel like yourself again.
Causes and Symptoms of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is common, and there are several potential causes. Your lower back is made up of the spine, which consists of spinal discs and vertebrae. Numerous muscles and ligaments are connected to the spine. Additionally, your spine connects your brain to your body through the spinal cord. When something goes wrong with any of these components, you may experience lower back pain.
Common causes include:
- Sprains and strains
- Spinal misalignment or subluxations
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Poor posture
Your back pain may be constant, or it may come and go. The pain can feel like a dull ache or a sharp shooting pain. In addition to pain, you may have limited range of motion or stiffness. Depending on the cause of your pain, you may also experience discomfort in your hips, buttocks, or upper back.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
Chiropractors take a holistic approach to pain relief, considering you as a whole person rather than just focusing on your symptoms. Your chiropractor will begin by diagnosing the cause of your pain and creating a comprehensive treatment plan.
Spinal misalignment or subluxations is often a cause or contributing factor to lower back pain. When your spine is out of alignment, your body can't function properly. Chiropractic adjustment corrects subluxations with gentle impulses and pressure. Proper alignment can relieve back pain, improve your nervous system function, reduce inflammation, and enhance flexibility.
Therapeutic exercises can also help relieve your back pain. Your chiropractor will show you which exercises are helpful for your condition. Once you know how to perform these exercises, you can continue doing them at home. Therapeutic exercises can alleviate pain, strengthen weak muscles, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of future injuries.
Acupuncture involves the use of thin needles inserted into specific points on your skin. It is believed to remove energy blockages that can cause pain and illness.
In some cases low back pain is a result of nerve damage from an old injury or surgery. Quantum Neurology is an effective nerve rehabilitation technique to stimulate the healing of chronic nerve damage.
