Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain at Aloha Wellness
The lower back is made up of bones, joints, ligaments, and nerves that work together to provide flexibility, strength, and support to the entire body. However, the lower back is susceptible to both pain and injury. Chiropractic care provides natural and non-invasive relief from lower back pain. We work to diagnose and treat the root cause of your pain here at Aloha Wellness Chiropractic and Nutrition. We are dedicated to providing our patients in and around the North Central San Antonio area the care they need to reduce low back pain or discomfort and prevent it from reoccurring.
Causes & Symptoms
Low back pain can occur suddenly or happen gradually over time resulting from constant and repetitive movements. Most causes of low back pain result from an injury such as sprains or muscle strains. Risk factors for low back pain include moving luggage, heavy lifting, traumatic injuries, kidney infection, athletic activity, throwing, osteoporosis, aging, and pregnancy. It can also be the result of certain conditions such as:
- Kidney infections
- Herniated or ruptured disc
- Spinal cord cancer
- Spine infections
Acute back pain can linger anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Chronic pain, on the other hand, can linger for months. Lower back pain is also more likely to occur in people between the ages of 30 and 50 due to changes within the body as it ages. Symptoms of lower back pain can range anywhere from a dull ache to a sharp and stabbing pain. Pain can either be intermittent or constant. Symptoms really depend on the exact cause of your back pain. Numbness, tingling, and even the inability to walk are all common symptoms related to lower back pain.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care for low back pain includes various non-invasive methods that manipulate the joints, tissues, and spine, helping improve the patient's range of motion and reduce pain. Treatment approaches are all based on the patient's individual needs. Before treatment begins, we will provide a thorough assessment of your medical history and current health to diagnose the root cause of your back pain. Based on the findings, your chiropractor will put together a customized treatment plan for you. Most commonly, our chiropractor performs spinal manipulation on patients suffering from low back pain.
