Low Back Pain & Chiropractic Care
Low back pain is the most commonly presented condition to a chiropractor. This is because low back pain is so common, affects all ages and has been estimated to affect 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives (Spinal Manipulation for Low Back-Pain. NCCIH 2013). Pain in the low back can originate from the muscles, ligaments, intervertebral disc, joints, bones, degeneration, nerves and sacroiliac joints.
Causes of damage or increased strain to these areas are caused by: poor posture, trauma/accidents, poor ergonomics, spinal degeneration (arthritis) also known as wear and tear and loss of spinal function.
Low back pain can commonly present with referral down the leg, pressure on nerves causing weakness/change of sensation/pins and needles.
The chiropractor’s role in the treatment of low back pain is to first identify the cause of the problem obtained from thorough functional, neurological and orthopedic assessment. Then rule out any potential underlying pathology and determine if chiropractic care is safe and right for you. We then implement a series of chiropractic adjustments combined with at home exercises and lifestyle modifications aimed at restoring function and addressing the underlying cause of low back pain.
