A common cause of low back pain can be problems with the disc, the fibrous cushion between each vertebra. A bulging or ruptured disc can irritate nerves that travel from the spinal cord. Leg pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the legs may all be a result of disc irritation.
Low back problems are more common in people who are in poor
physical condition and those with jobs that include heavy lifting,
long periods of sitting, standing, or lots of bending.
Emotional stress or long periods of inactivity may intensify
symptoms or trigger the appearance of previous problems.
It is important to have back pain treated within the first month of the onset of the pain. Waiting until the pain is unbearable or immobilizing is not only unhealthy but may end up costing more time, stress,
and money in the long run. There is no reason to suffer longer than you must, and chiropractic care at Crabtree Chiropractic Center can help
get you back to a pain-free life!
A chiropractic approach to treating low back pain is to find the source of the back pain and correct it, not just treat the symptom; this ensures that the body can heal naturally.
Low back pain often responds dramatically to the correction of vertebrae positioning and the restoration of normal motion.
Chiropractors use spinal manipulations or adjustments to precisely apply a directed force to the vertebrae that are out of position.
Gradually, these adjustments help restore normal range of motion, position, and function of the joint.
Our doctors may either use their hands or specialized tools to apply a quick thrust or slower pressure to the misaligned joint.
Additionally, we may suggest adding exercises, hot or cold compresses, or massage to compliment your adjustments.
It may also be helpful to consider some lifestyle changes such as healthier eating and stress reduction techniques.
Our office policy is we will not treat any patient for longer than two weeks without experiencing significant results. We will continue to evaluate your progress to ensure we have chosen the most effective treatment for your condition.
