Low Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic Care
More than 80% of Americans experience low back pain at least once in their lifetime. In fact, it's the main contributor of job-related disabilities and missed workdays.
Your lower back is engineered to provide support, flexibility, and strength to your upper body, which is why this region is sensitive to injury and pain from day-to-day tasks. From dull, achy pain to sharp burning pain, low back pain can lead to discomfort and sleepless nights – compromising your quality of life.
Some of the common low back pain treatments include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (such as ibuprofen), opioids, and injections. However, there’s a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free alternative – and that's chiropractic care.
How Does Chiropractic Care Work as a Low Back Pain Treatment?
Chiropractic care is the go-to treatment for lower back pains for millions of Americans every year.
Chiropractic adjustments work on the basis that back pain is caused by spine misalignment. Spinal manipulation involves the physical pulling, pushing, and re-positioning of the back, leg, head, shoulders, and hips to help alleviate back pain.
Besides reducing pain and discomfort, chiropractic adjustments also come with the following benefits:
- Improve range of motion
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved flexibility
- Increased muscle strength
To determine whether you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care, an experienced chiropractor will perform a consultation as well as an examination that may involve diagnostic imaging such as x-rays.
