Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

The lower back provides support and balance to the body, absorbing pressure all day, even during sleep. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:

  • Spine conditions like arthritis, spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis
  • Nerve impingements, including sciatica in the lower back and cervical radiculopathy in the upper back and shoulders
  • Lifestyle and work habits, including sitting or standing for long periods of time without taking breaks, poor posture, carrying heavy or unbalanced backpacks or purses, poor lifting technique, wearing high heels or shoes without arch support, and even sleeping on a mattress that's too soft
  • Trauma from car accidents, sports accidents, slip-and-fall accidents or other causes

The chiropractors at Quality Chiropractic have significant training and experience and are able to determine the underlying cause of lower back pain as well as provide the most effective and appropriate treatment.

How is the cause of lower back pain diagnosed?

The chiropractors at Quality Chiropractic diagnose the cause of lower back pain with a physical examination, which includes a range of motion test, orthopedic tests, muscle tests, and a neurological test. The doctor will also manually feel the spine, hips, legs, and any other body parts experiencing radiant pain. If necessary, the chiropractor will order X-rays or other diagnostic imaging tests such as MRIs and/or CT scans.

How do the chiropractors treat lower back pain?

The chiropractors at Quality Chiropractic have extensive training and experience in treating issues affecting the spine, including injuries, diseases and acute and chronic conditions. The chiropractors have training in hands-on evaluation techniques that can be especially effective in pinpointing the causes of lower back pain so adjustments, massage, and other treatments are able to target these issues for immediate and long-term relief of symptoms. Many lower back pain issues are resolved with chiropractic adjustments, often in combination with deep tissue manipulation, therapeutic massage, physical therapy, gentle stretching exercises, and at home exercises. Personalized guidance can also help patients address lifestyle issues that may be contributing to their symptoms.
