Low Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic Care

Written By Kabel Chiropractic on March 27, 2018

Suffering from low back pain?

You’re not alone. 

According to statistics, 80% of people will experience this type of pain during their adult life. This pain could get worse over time and may feel like a dull, persistent ache, or it may be a sudden pain that’s completely incapacitating. 

Nevertheless, with nearly 8 million people in America heading to their local chiropractor, it’s clear there are treatments available for low back pain. And many studies suggest that manual therapies and other treatments offered by chiropractors are most effective when tackling these types of pains in the lower back.  

Do You Need Low Back Pain Treatment? 

There is a whole host of reasons why you may be suffering from low back pain, including weight gain, a sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, and age. However, some of the most common triggers are pulling, heavy lifting, or pushing, especially if improper techniques are used. 

If you don’t lift something properly, your lower back muscles will take most of the strain. This means you may incur muscle strain (tiny tears), which are immensely painful, or you could even sustain a herniated, bulging, or ruptured disc injury.

Why is Chiropractic Care Such an Effective Low Back Pain Treatment? 

To start with, your chiropractor in Highlands Ranch will ask you about your medical history so they can understand your individual case. Then, they’ll conduct a physical exam of your spinal area. This may also include lab tests or diagnostic imaging that help establish what type of treatment is required.

Once determined, they’ll put together a dedicated treatment plan that features a number of chiropractic techniques known as manual adjustments. Improving your range of motion and the quality of it, your chiropractor will use controlled forces to manipulate your muscles and joints. 

Equally, most chiropractors will also offer step-by-step advice that you can follow at home, too. This includes any dietary changes you can make and simple exercises you can do to build up the strength of your back. 

When combined, all of these natural techniques not only help combat your back pain and get you back to normal, but they also help reduce your risk of sustaining back injuries in the future. And all of this without requiring surgery or medication.
