Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

There are many different issues that can cause lower back pain, including:

  • Soft tissue injury – A soft tissue injury involves the muscles of the lower back. If a muscle is pulled or strained, it can cause ongoing pain. A soft tissue injury can be caused by an acute injury (such as a car accident or sports related injury) or can occur from stress over time (such as pregnancy or sitting in the same position at work for many hours).
  • Herniated disc – Between each vertebra in the back, there is a soft disc that cushions the bones of the spine. Age, injury, and other factors can cause spinal discs to bulge or herniate. This can put pressure on the nerves in the lower back, causing radiating pain.
  • Lower back sprain – The ligaments in the lower back connect the bones in the area together, and when these ligaments are overstretched, a sprain can occur. This can cause sharp, immediate pain.

Lower Back Pain Treatment

When you come to see our chiropractor, he’ll work with you to find the root cause of your pain. This allows us to put a permanent stop to your pain, rather than simply treating the symptoms. Most patients benefit from several treatment modalities, including spinal adjustment, massage, laser therapy, spinal decompression, and more. Your personalized treatment plan will provide you with exactly what you need to recover from your lower back pain. While you may feel great after your first appointment, it typically takes several appointments to get the full benefit of chiropractic care.
