Low Back Pain Q & A

What causes low back pain?

There are a variety of issues that can result in ongoing pain in your lower back. In many cases, people develop low back pain as they age and their spinal vertebrae begin to wear down. Age-related wear-and-tear causes the vertebrae in your low back to rub together, triggering chronic pain.

Other common causes of low back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Poor posture
  • Direct trauma
  • Muscle strains
  • Nerve compression

Low back pain is also a side effect of underlying organ disease or infection.

How can chiropractic care treat low back pain?

If your low back pain is the result of nerve compression in the lower spine, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can perform hands-on adjustments and other techniques to realign your vertebrae. Treatment can relieve pressure on the nerves to alleviate chronic pain.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, the team may use noninvasive instruments that deliver high-speed thrusts to the affected vertebrae to realign them into proper position. Adjustments with instruments are quick and ensure proper spinal alignment without pain.

Mechanical motion therapy™ (MMT) is also an effective treatment. With MMT, you’re instructed to make certain movements as your HealthWise Chiropractic provider uses chiropractic instruments, like the Activator®, to make adjustments to your spine.

What other services are available for chronic low back pain?

The team at HealthWise Chiropractic offers comprehensive services to address pain and mobility issues. To complement your chiropractic adjustments, your provider may recommend regular massage therapy to increase blood circulation and help relax tense muscles in the back.

Because poor posture or lack of activity often contributes to low back pain, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can also work with you on improving your nutrition, losing weight, and practicing better posture. This approach ensures you enjoy long-term benefits of chiropractic care and prevent additional injuries to your low back and spine.

If your job requires heavy lifting or other strenuous activities, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can recommend ways to protect your low back from muscle strains and other injuries, such as bracing and proper lifting techniques.

Chiropractic care can also help improve your overall health by increasing your range of motion and strength, making it easier to stay physically active.
