Several possible conditions can cause lower back pain, but most of them have to do with natural degeneration of the spinal discs. The pressure your back withstands on a day-to-day basis can compromise the integrity of your bones and joints.
In addition to natural wear and tear, a few common causes of lower back pain include:
Lower back pain is more likely to develop as you age, and you’re also more at risk if you are not physically fit.
Your first visit with Dr. Megan will involve a thorough health history examination and a patient-specific assessment of your physical and emotional state. She may recommend X-Rays to determine if you have an underlying injury or disc problem that’s impacting your spine.
With chiropractic care, your treatment plan is customized to include adjustments that will help relieve pain, improve mobility, strengthen the muscles and tissues of the back, and restore the function of your natural movements. Part of the goal is also to prevent further injury as you age.
Dr. Megan approaches patient care from a holistic perspective, so she may also recommend diet and lifestyle strategies to help speed up your healing.
The spine is your body’s “superhighway,” and its health is paramount to your entire well-being. Therefore, addressing problems in the lower back can help support the entire spinal pathway and improve mobility and strength in the rest of your body.
Chiropractic is a gentle and effective option, even for people who haven’t had success with other methods. It can address both acute and chronic pain, and it complements other modalities you may be using.
