Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

Various incidents can cause lower back pain.

Tight muscles can have spasms that pull your bones out of alignment. This process can shift your spine and cause discs to bulge. Poor posture from hunching over a computer desk for an extended period can cause pain too.

Spinal misalignment is one of the most common causes of lower back pain. The spinal nerves can be compressed by bulging discs in your spine because of this misalignment. Compressed nerves can lead to back, arm, and leg pain. Pinched nerves also affect mobility and limit your spine's range of motion.

Other causes of lower back pain include the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Being overweight
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sports injuries or insufficient exercise

What treatments are available for lower back pain?

Your chiropractor at the Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness Center creates a comprehensive treatment plan to address your specific lower back pain issues. Depending on the cause of your back pain they may recommend the following:

  • Manipulation to realign the spine and take pressure off the nerves
  • Therapeutic massage to relieve muscle tension
  • Acupuncture to open energy channels
  • Cold laser therapy to optimize cellular functioning
  • Cupping therapy to reduce pain and inflammation

Each of these treatments offers immediate benefits and reduces pain in your lower back after the first treatment.

Are there things you can do at home to reduce lower back pain?
