Chiropractic Care for Low Back Pain

Lower back pain can be insufferable and make every move a chore. The lower back withstands a great deal of pressure and movement throughout the day. When something isn’t right in that area, it’s hard to ignore. That’s actually a good thing because ignoring it isn’t the answer. Doing so can even make your pain worse. Instead, it’s critical to address your lower back pain, and chiropractic care is an effective way to do this. Learn more in the guide below from Dr. Calafiore and the team at Chiropractic Healing Arts Center in El Cajon, CA.

Where Does Pain in the Lower Back Come From?

The lower back is a common location for injuries, as it is used for so many tasks. Sitting, walking, bending, lifting, sleeping, and various other activities both rely on the lower back and put pressure on it. This often leads to issues such as:

  • Muscle tension and strains
  • Misalignment
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractors begin by determining the root of your pain so that a targeted treatment plan can be developed. They then combine techniques such as those listed below to provide natural and optimal relief.

  • Adjustments: Adjustments and manipulation are employed to restore and maintain proper alignment, removing unnecessary pressure from the discs, nerves, muscles, and other components.
  • Massage therapy: Therapeutic massage is beneficial in relieving tension, improving range of motion, improving blood flow, and stimulating natural healing.
  • Electrical muscle stimulation: EMS causes the muscles in the back to contract and relax. This process provides various benefits, including reducing or eliminating muscle spasms and improving blood flow to the area.
  • Spinal decompression: Decompression therapy provides a thorough but gentle stretch to the spinal column, which helps relieve unnecessary pressure on the discs, nerves, and muscles. It also pulls blood and healing nutrients to the spine, as well as pulls herniated discs back into the proper place.
  • Therapeutic exercise: Targeted exercises can help stretch tightened muscles, strengthen weakened ones, improve range of motion, increase blood circulation, and more.
