Lower Back Pain Q & A

Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness Center

What causes lower back pain?

Various phenomena can cause lower back pain.

Tight and spasming muscles can pull your bones out of alignment, shifting your spine and causing discs to bulge. Poor posture, such as hunching over a computer or desk for an extended period can cause pain, too.

Spinal misalignment is one of the most common causes of lower back pain, Because your spine is out of alignment, it puts pressure on your nerves and can cause bulging discs, which compress spinal nerves.

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 doctor 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 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 just one treatment.

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

Beyond in-office treatments, Dr. Jochen and his team may give you "homework" to reduce lower back pain. They may suggest exercises that reinforce the adjustments made in the office, to increase your muscle strength, stability, and flexibility.

You can also go home with a product that gives you instant relief. The StressRoller™ is a unique, do-it-yourself massager designed by Dr. Jochen that reduces your pain after just one use.

Your doctor may suggest following personalized nutritional guidelines. Depending on your case, this plan could help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, as well as reduce the inflammation-producing foods in your diet.
