An Overview of Lower Back Pain from Grosman Chiropractic Clinic PLLC
At Grosman Chiropractic Clinic PLLC, one of the most common reasons why people come to our Greensboro office is lower back pain. When it comes to lower back pain, there are a few important points to keep in mind.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
When someone comes to our office with lower back pain, there are going to be a few common causes that are going to cross our mind. One of the most common causes of lower back pain is poor posture. Over time, poor posture can move vertebrae out of alignment. When this happens, nerves, muscles, and ligaments are all stressed to a greater extent. This leads to lower back pain.
Another common cause of lower back pain is a herniated disc. In between the vertebrae are small discs that act as cushions for the vertebrae. If a disc herniates, this causes liquid to leak out of the disks, which puts pressure on nearby nerves, causing pain.
Symptoms of Lower Back Pain
If someone is suffering from lower back pain, there are a few common symptoms that are going to develop. One of the most common symptoms is shooting pains that travel down the arms and legs. This results from irritation of nerves in the back. Another common symptom is a reduction in the range of motion of the back. This has to do with the stiffness that accompanies the tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Finally, people might also have trouble sleeping at night due to back pain. Fortunately, there are a few ways that a chiropractor can help.
Treatment of Lower Back Pain
When a person visits a chiropractor for lower back pain treatment, there are going to be a few possible treatment options. First, the chiropractor can use manipulations and adjustments to make sure that a person's spine is properly aligned. This can go a long way towards helping people alleviate their lower back pain. Next, a chiropractor can also use spinal decompression to increase the amount of space between the vertebrae in the back. This can help with certain causes of lower back pain, such as pinched nerves and herniated discs.
