Lower Back Pain Q&A

What is lower back pain?

Your back can withstand a great deal of pressure when it's healthy and strong. However, if there's any misalignment in your spine or damage to the soft tissues in your back, it only takes a small misstep to find yourself with lower back pain.

If you injure your back and don't get the right treatment, the pain can persist and turn into a chronic problem. Chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments for many causes of lower back pain.

What causes lower back pain?

There are a wide variety of reasons why you might get lower back pain, including:

  • Sprained ligaments
  • Strained muscles
  • Ruptured discs
  • Trigger points
  • Inflamed joints
  • Sports injuries
  • Accident injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Psychological stress

Lower back pain can sometimes be due to conditions like kidney stones or infections, blood clots, or bone loss.

As there are so many things that can cause lower back pain, it's vital to seek the right help. The team at Melilli Chiropractic and Rehab Center can diagnose the causes of lower back pain and determine the proper treatment.

How is lower back pain treated?

Conventional treatments for lower back pain typically begin with rest, medications, hot and cold compresses, and then physical therapies. For mild muscle strains, these treatments can be useful, but if there's any misalignment in the spine or a herniated disc, they can't cure the problem.

The Melilli Chiropractic and Rehab Center team can locate and treat lower back problems and provide effective treatments for many causes of lower back pain. For example, you might require an adjustment of your lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis. This can re-establish the normal position and movement of your bones and joints.

Your provider at Melilli Chiropractic and Rehab Center can advise you on the kind of chiropractic care you might need after examining you and looking at the results of diagnostic imaging tests.

You might need to attend a series of sessions and follow a physical therapy program to ensure the optimal results from your treatment. The practice also provides massage therapy and advice on making lifestyle changes like losing weight that could help with your lower back pain.
