Low Back Pain
Does your lower back ache or throb? You’re not alone.
Many people experience chronic or occasional pain in the lumbar region, or lower back, making it difficult to sit, stand, or lie down. Low back pain can become more common as you age, since the discs separating your vertebrae lose fluid and flexibility over time. But even young people can develop lower back pain just from sitting too long, especially in a chair with inadequate support (which can cause pelvic torque). Other common causes of lower back pain include low-grade spasms or a pinched sciatic nerve.
While heat or ice may ease your symptoms temporarily, for effective relief you’ll want to see your HealthSource chiropractor as soon as possible. We’ll diagnose the cause of your low back pain and create a personalized treatment plan to relieve your pain and help you strengthen your back to avoid re-injury. You might be encouraged to know that, as one study showed, “patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians.” *
