Chiropractor For Low Back Pain
With low back pain, there is always an underlying cause. The Chiropractor’s role in the treatment of low back pain is to first identify the cause of the problem. This is achieved through a thoroughly functional, neurological and orthopedic assessment. The chiropractor will then rule out any potential underlying pathology and determine if chiropractic care is safe and right for the patient.
Chiropractic care for low back pain involves a series of chiropractic adjustments combined with home exercises and lifestyle modifications aimed at restoring function and addressing the underlying cause of the low back pain.

Low Back Pain
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).
What Causes Low Back Pain?
Pain in the lower back can originate from many parts of the body including the muscles, ligaments, intervertebral disc, joints, bones, nerves, and sacroiliac joints. There are many conditions and lifestyle factors that can cause damage or increased strain to these areas resulting in low back pain including:
- Poor posture
- Damage to the intervertebral discs
- Trauma or Accidents
- Compression of nerve roots
- Poor ergonomics
- Improper movement of the spinal joints
- Spinal degeneration (Arthritis)
- Herniated disc
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal tumors
However, the most common cause of low back pain is a torn or pulled muscle or ligament.
Do You Have Low Back Pain?
Low back pain can present itself in a variety of ways, from a dull ache to severe and even debilitating pain. It can sometimes come in the form of a sudden onset of pain or gradually develop and worsen over time.
Symptoms of low back pain can vary depending on the cause of the problem. If you have low back pain you may experience a referral through the backs of your thighs and even down to your feet on one or both legs. You may also experience difficulty with walking and tightness in the hips and pelvis. The pressure on the nerves from low back pain can also cause weakness, a change of sensation and pins and needles.
