CAUSES OF LOWER BACK PAIN
Nearly 80 percent of adults will suffer lower back pain at some point in their lives. In some cases, mild back pain will subside in a day or two by resting and avoiding activities that put stress on the back. In other cases, chronic or acute lower back pain may be caused by a disorder or disease that requires accurate diagnosis and chiropractic treatment by your Redding chiropractor. Addressing moderate to severe lower back pain as soon as possible may significantly reduce your risk of possibly needing surgery in the future for a condition that responds favorably to chiropractic techniques.
What is Causing My Lower Back Pain?
Ligament and muscle strain is the most common cause of lower back pain. Improperly lifting heavy objects, twisting and bending suddenly and engaging in rigorous physical activity when you aren’t conditioned to do so are the primary reasons for lower back strain. Other reasons for lower back pain include:
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Scoliosis/abnormal curvature of the spine
By taking your medical history, evaluating your symptoms and performing a physical examination, your Redding chiropractor can formulate an accurate diagnosis and begin appropriate treatment methods immediately.
Chiropractic Treatments for Lower Back Pain
When vertebrae comprising your spine are pushed out of normal positioning (spinal subluxation), nerve compression often occurs that causes many types of lower back pain. To restore your spine’s alignment, your Redding chiropractor will perform a chiropractic adjustment. Spinal subluxation can happen if vertebrae are even slightly displaced, resulting in abnormal intradiscal pressure that produces chronic and sometimes debilitating pain.
Decompression therapy is another effective chiropractic treatment for lower back pain that induces imbibition, or the promotion of nutritional intake by discs. Intervertebral discs suffering degeneration or injury severely restrict blood flow to the spine, causing inflammation, stiffness, and pain. Spinal decompression helps re-establish imbibition so that discs are supplied with oxygenated blood conducive to healing damaged soft tissues and reducing lower back pain.
