Chiropractic Treatment forLower Back Pain

Back Pain
Back pain can be painful, debilitating and
persistent, and some people suffer repeated
episodes. It can also be associated with other
symptoms, such as leg pain or sciatica. It may
start following a specific incident, such as
bending awkwardly or lifting a heavy weight, or
it can develop gradually, perhaps as a result of
poor posture, an uncomfortable work position, or
repetitive strain.

Causes of Lower Back Pain
The back is a complicated structure of bones,
joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain
ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and
irritate joints, all of which can lead to back
pain. While sports injuries or accidents can
cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of
movementsfor example, picking up a pencil from
the floor can have painful results. In addition,
arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and
psychological stress can cause or complicate back
pain. Back pain can also directly result from
disease of the internal organs, such as kidney
stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone
loss.

Common Symptoms
  • Pain that is dull or achy, contained to the low
    back
  • Stinging, burning pain that moves from the low
    back to the backs of the thighs, sometimes into
    the lower legs or feet can include numbness or
    tingling (sciatica)
  • Muscle spasms and tightness in the low back,
    pelvis, and hips
  • Pain that worsens after prolonged sitting or
    standing
  • Difficulty standing up straight, walking, or
    going from standing to sitting

Tips to Prevent Back Pain
  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight.
  • Remain activeunder the supervision of your
    chiropractor.
  • Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
  • Warm up or stretch before exercising or physical
    activities, such as gardening.
  • Maintain proper posture.
  • Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to
    minimize any curve in your spine.
  • When lifting an object, lift with your knees,
    keep the object close to your body, and do not
    twist.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow,
    resulting in oxygen nutrient deprivation to
    spinal tissues.
