Lower Back Pain Treatment 

Low back pain results in millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering. Eight out of ten adults suffer from low back pain by the age of forty-five. There can be many causes: Improper sitting, lifting, over-exertion, trauma or inherited spinal abnormalities. The chiropractic approach to healing is to help restore a more normal motion and position of affected spinal structures. This is done by chiropractic manipulation, thus correcting the underlying structural cause of the problem. We don’t just treat the symptoms with pain pills, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a severe pain in the leg caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerves are the largest nerves in the body, and about the size of your thumb. They are found down the back of each leg. These nerves can become irritated or can be affected by inflammation of nearby soft tissues. When this occurs, doctors call the condition sciatica. The bulging or herniation of the soft discs that separate each spinal bone can cause this problem as well. Injury to the sciatic nerve and its branches result in pain that may extend from the buttock down the back of the leg. Other symptoms may include foot drop, (the inability to flex the foot), loss of sensation over the leg and foot, bladder dysfunction, impotence and loss of bowel control.

The chiropractic approach is to use carefully directed and controlled pressure to remove the interference from spinal structures. This procedure is called an "Adjustment" or "manipulation." Sciatica, like other health problems that can be traced to the spine, more often than not responds favorably to chiropractic care.

Sports Related Injuries

Many sports-related injuries involve the spine and the soft tissues surrounding it. Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance and decrease performance. Chiropractic care helps restore normal function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Pain relief and restoration of joint mobility needed for good performance can be achieved through quality chiropractic care. Remember, sports injuries among youngsters are often ignored as "growing pains." Regular chiropractic checkups can help avoid problems seen later on in adults. Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or bowl, the best treatment for a sports injury is prevention and spinal balance.

If you face chronic neck pain, shoulder pain or lower back pain, we may be able to help.
