Chronic lower back pain is one of the most common causes of missed work. It affects millions of people each year and can have a dramatic impact on your quality of life. Visiting a chiropractor is one of the best ways to keep your lower back pain under control and you as active as possible. A chiropractor has many tools and therapies he can use to reduce your pain and discomfort while working to correct its cause. Here at Godfrey Chiropractic PC, we use various forms of chiropractic care to treat the many causes of lower back pain.
Lower back pain has many possible causes. Improper lifting techniques, poor posture, and slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes. Degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, and herniated discs are also extremely common. When people are involved in an auto accident, they often complain of chronic back pain that extends from their neck to the base of their spine.
If these conditions aren't treated expeditiously, the pain may become chronic, meaning long-term aftercare may be required. This is especially true if scar tissue is allowed to form. Allowing the body to heal without treatment can lead to stiff joints and ongoing inflammation that leads to general discomfort.
Chiropractors have many tools and techniques at their disposal that can be used to help relieve your discomfort and allow your body to begin the healing process. Your chiropractor will thoroughly evaluate your body and work to find the exact cause of your pain. By correcting what is causing your discomfort, your symptoms will gradually start to disappear.
By combining physical therapy, deep tissue massage, and chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor can correct abnormalities in your musculoskeletal structure and bring your body back into its natural alignment. This also helps to re-establish the delicate balance that allows your body to function so efficiently.
