Low Back Pain Relief at Double Chiropractic and Wellness Center

Woman holding lower backWe realize, as chiropractors, that our spine goes through a lot of wear and tear throughout our lives, and that wear and tear builds up over time. Hoisting heavy objects. Sleeping in an awkward position. A sudden movement. These and other actions can cause low back pain, one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care.

As chiropractors, we focus on identifying the root cause of this weakness in the spine and making the necessary corrections to alleviate the discomfort you’re experiencing.

How Chiropractic Adjustments Work

Lower back pain is typically caused by a misaligned joint that irritates the adjacent nerve, leading to pain. In such cases, we perform chiropractic adjustments to restore motion in the spine and make the joint healthier. Coupled with lifestyle modifications and the appropriate use of ice for healing, chiropractic care can yield excellent results in correcting lower back pain.

Diagnostic Tests and Imaging Studies

To better understand the source of your lower back pain, Dr. D may recommend diagnostic tests or imaging studies like X-rays. These help us identify any previous damage to the spine and inform our treatment plan. In more severe cases, we might suggest further testing like MRIs.

Frequency and Duration of Chiropractic Treatments

The frequency and duration of chiropractic treatments for lower back pain largely depend on the patient’s needs and goals.

We tell patients that chiropractic is not a pain thing; it’s a healing thing. So it just depends on what level of healing you want.”
Dr. D

Some patients seek immediate relief from pain, while others aim for preventative care or overall health and function. We tailor our approach to match your specific needs, focusing on healing rather than mere pain relief.

Exercises and Self-Care Strategies

In addition to chiropractic treatment, self-care strategies can play a crucial role in managing lower back pain. The use of ice can help reduce inflammation in the area, making adjustments more effective. Once the pain subsides, we recommend simple exercises such as knee-to-chest stretches to help alleviate discomfort in your lower back.

Remember, chiropractic is not just about eliminating pain; it’s about promoting overall healing. The level of healing you seek—whether it’s relief from pain or optimal health—guides our customized approach to your care.
