Lower Back Pain Relief | Treatment from Chiropractor in Nocatee and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
When it comes to pain, there is perhaps no worse pain than lower back pain. The lower back plays a big role in helping support the entirety of the spine and torso. Lower back pain can lead to debilitating symptoms, such as acute and chronic back pain, inability to sit or stand comfortably, pain while twisting, and even shooting pain down the lower extremities. It's important to find effective care for lower back pain from a chiropractor.
A chiropractor can help determine the root cause of your back pain, which can help them provide effective treatment to get rid of your back pain once and for all. At Ponte Vedra Wellness Center, our chiropractor is here to help members of the Nocatee and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, community live free from lower back pain.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain has a number of causes, which makes it difficult to treat without help from a chiropractor.
Some of the most common causes of lower back pain include:
- Pulled back muscles
- Previous injures, such as car accident injuries and whiplash
- Overuse injuries, especially with people that work in physical labor
- Pinched nerves
- Sciatica, which is a compressed sciatic nerve that runs down the lower back and legs
- Spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spine that compresses nerves
- Poorly aligned spine, which also causes poor posture and balance issues
All of these issues can lead to lower back pain, which must be treated with the help of a chiropractor. Some of these issues, such as sciatica, have a tendency to reoccur if not treated using the proper chiropractic techniques.
How Does a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam, ask questions about the nature of your pain, and even conduct imaging tests, such as X-rays, to determine the root cause of your back pain. They can then recommend treatments, such as spinal adjustments to realign the spine, muscle massages to alleviate sore back muscles, or spinal decompression. This is a type of physical therapy that helps pull apart the vertebrae in the spine and take pressure off the compressed nerves.
Your chiropractor will check in on you throughout your treatment to ensure your pain is remaining at manageable levels and, eventually, goes away completely.
