Low Back Pain
Low Back Pain is probably the most common symptom seen in a chiropractic office. Have you ever had pain doing the simplest of activities? Perhaps you were bending over to pick up a young child or even something as light as a newspaper. How about when you reach across your bed to straighten out the blanket or when you change positions from sitting to standing? Have you ever gotten back pain after driving for a period of time? All of these actions and many, many more very common activity can help aggravate lower back conditions. It is easy to know how your back got hurt if you lifted heavy boxes, or worked very long hours bending and twisting. These are obvious causes. However, there more common causes are the everyday activities that we perform. Even though they don’t feel painful, they cause micro traumas to our spine. That is, they cause little irritations that, over a long period of time, end up causing significant changes to our spinal structure, and in some cases, major pain.

Treatment
Chiropractic treatment typically consists of physical therapy to help reduce the muscle spasm and tightness, and the chiropractic adjustment which helps restore normal spine and nerve function to the affected areas. Also, ice therapy (cryotherapy) is used to help reduce swel ling. It is important in most cases to avoid the use of heat therapy such as a heating pad on the lower back as this causes increased swelling and eventually more pain.
