What Causes Low Back Pain?
Your low back, also known as the lumbar region, is the part of your back that starts below your ribcage. If you’re feeling low back pain, you can experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Muscle and ligament strain: The most common cause of low back pain, this can happen suddenly or slowly develop from continued repetitive movements. Strains happen when one of your muscles is stretched too much and tears. Lifting a heavy object, poor posture, and sports injuries can cause muscle strains.
- Herniated disc: One of the discs in your spine can form a crack in its outer shell, causing the soft substance in the center to break through and cause pain. It can also irritate a nerve root, resulting in additional pain and inflammation.
- Degenerative disc disease: The discs in your spine will wear down and lose hydration through the aging process. Due to the lack of hydration, discs can easily get tears and cause pain, and potentially lead to a herniation.
Low Back Pain Treatments
Chiropractors can provide non-invasive treatment plans to help your low back pain instead of surgery or medications. A chiropractor will evaluate your symptoms and create a treatment plan based on what is best for you as a patient.
One of the methods used is spinal and manual manipulation. Your chiropractor will adjust your spine, releasing any built-up pressure or tension on your discs. They will work to improve the joint mobility in whatever area is causing you pain. Releasing disc tension will encourage oxygen and nutrient flow through the damaged area, making for quicker healing.
