The best low back pain treatment

Mar 11, 2008
Before we discuss low back pain treatments, let look at what is the main cause of low back pain. One cause of lower back pain can be nerves from the spinal cord irritated by a bulging or ruptured disc. This condition may cause buttock or leg pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the legs. Degenerative changes in the vertebrae also can irritate or inflame delicate nerves in the spinal bones. The last cause is dysfunction of the normal movement of spinal joints.

People who sit or stand for prolonged periods of time, do heavy lifting often, or are in poor physical condition are all at elevated risk for low back pain. It has also been discovered that these people have a longer than normal recovery time and are more likely to have another occurrence of low back pain. Stress and long periods of inactivity make all of these factor even more apparent.

To correctly treat low back pain you need to treat the problem not just the symptom. This is what a doctor of Chiropractic does. Chiropractors remove the irritation to the spinal nerves by correcting the abnormal movement of the spinal joints. Spinal manipulation is now considered the best way to treat low back pain.

Chiropractors treatment modality of choice is manipulation. Manipulation can be performed by hand or utilizing specialized instruments to administer the therapuetic thrust into the affected joint. The manipulation is a very controlled, quick and precise force applied to a dysfunctional joint.

There are a variety of associated therapies the doctor may use in conjunction to the manipulation in the treatment of your low back pain. Electrical stimulation to relax muscle spasms and reduce pain along with hot/ice packs massage therapy and ultrasound may all be used. to help rehabilitate your back after your injury and treatment therapeutic exercise will strengthen and retrain the muscle of your back.

When pain is severe, problems with your back can't be ignored. "Stop pain" immediately goes to number one on your list. Falls, car accidents, sports strains, heavy lifting, or repetitive work may cause sudden damage, or damage may occur slowly over time. However, most problems are more easily treated within the first month symptoms are noticed.

While some patients seek chiropractic care only when pain is unbearable, this "crisis" approach often costs more in the long run in time, stress, and dollars. Long-standing problems that have been neglected for years can't be cured with a single adjustment, any more than a single pill in a prescription can cure an illness.

Stop the needless suffering. The sooner you seek care the sooner you will get relief. Get the low back pain relief that has been proven in scientific studies and by over a hundred year of satisfied chiropractic patients.
