Common Causes of Low Back Pain

Strains and sprains are the common causes of low back pain. Straining muscles during moving, home repair tasks or work duties may result in discomfort. However, accidents or injuries can also cause damage to spinal discs that cushion the vertebra of the spine, leading to chronic pain. Stenosis, a condition that causes narrowing of the spinal column can cause pressure on nerves in the lower back. Degenerative disc disease and arthritis can lead to progressive deterioration of spinal structures that often cause pain.

Symptoms of Lower Back Dysfunction

Lower back pain can demonstrate as a simple nagging pain that occasionally occurs in the lower spine. However, the discomfort can escalate to a chronic problem that affects your ability to do bending motions at work or during your recreational activities. In some cases, you may also experience nerve impingement, with numbness and tingling down the leg or weakness in the leg.

How Low Back Pain Is Diagnosed

Your Edmonds chiropractor will take a full medical history to determine your current condition. The doctor may do x-rays to view the structures in the spine that may be causing the problem. Your doctor will also request you to perform certain movements, to determine pain levels, the range of motion and other aspects of spinal function.

Chiropractic Techniques Used To Relieve Back Pain

Manual adjustment is an essential part of chiropractic care that can help spinal structures return to their normal positions. The chiropractor may also use hand-held instruments to break down scar tissue and improve movement. Exercise can help to strengthen supporting muscles for greater flexibility. Massage therapy can be helpful in healing soft tissue injuries in the back and for improving range of motion.
