What Are the Different Types of Lower Back Pain?
Here are two types of lower back pain: acute and chronic.
Acute lower back pain is usually the result of an injury, such as a fall or lifting something heavy. This type usually goes away after a few days or weeks with rest, ice, and the body's natural healing process.
Chronic lower back pain, on the other hand, is long-lasting and can be the result of several different conditions, such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, or sciatica. If you're suffering from chronic lower back pain, it can be important to seek professional help so that you can find relief.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
There are many different things that can cause lower back pain. In some cases, it is the result of an injury. Other times, it is caused by a condition, such as degenerative disc disease or arthritis. Additionally, poor posture, sitting for long periods of time, and obesity can all contribute to lower back pain.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care is a drug-free and surgery-free way to treat lower back pain. A chiropractor on our team can work with you to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Depending on the cause of your lower back pain, your treatment plan may include:
- Spinal decompression: Spinal decompression is a treatment that can help to relieve the pressure on your spine, which can take pressure off your discs and nerves.
- Manual manipulation: Manual manipulation is a technique that a chiropractor on our team may use to adjust your spine. This can help to improve your range of motion and reduce pain.
- Exercise and stretches: Exercise and stretches can help to strengthen the muscles in your back and improve your flexibility.
