The vast majority of people seeking chiropractic care have either lower back pain or neck pain. Statistics show that as many as 65% of all individuals in this country will have some type of neck pain, and that as many as 85% of people will experience lower back pain. With so many people experiencing this kind of pain and discomfort, a wide variety of treatments have been sought and recommended, most of which provide only temporary relief at best.
In fact, a great many of these treatments really only cause the symptoms to disappear for several hours, and then after medication wears off, all the symptoms return in full force. There is a much better way to handle neck pain or lower back pain, and that’s through chiropractic care. At Creekside Chiropractic we are a back pain chiropractor in Salt Lake, and we go right to the source of your lower back pain or neck pain, and try to eliminate the cause of that pain. This is by far the best approach, because it will give you the best chance for having extended or even permanent relief from the kind of pain you’ve been experiencing.
Causes of lower back pain
Recognize and treat the cause of your pain
You might not be aware of this, but treatment for lower back pain is the second most common reason for patients to seek out medical care, with only the common cold being addressed more frequently. Most patients experience lower back pain as a kind of burning sensation which radiates through the hips or buttocks, including numbness in the feet or legs, and possibly even being accompanied by weakness in the extremities.
Low back pain has been identified as the single greatest cause of disability in Americans who are of working age, and that makes it a very significant problem. There are all kinds of potential causes for your lower back pain, and when you come to us at Creekside Chiropractic, we will make sure to find the root cause of whatever is troubling you. The single most common reason for lower back pain is spinal misalignment and poor posture, and the irony of this is that both these causes are very frequently overlooked by patients experiencing lower back pain.
It is sometimes possible to observe spinal misalignment simply by visually examining a patient, but x-rays will always point up any spinal misalignments. If you do have any spinal misalignments, that can trigger some other problems in your spine, such as disc degeneration. This will happen many times in older individuals, because the cushion between spine joints wears out, and that can lead to a bone-on-bone situation.
If your spine has become misaligned in some way, that will often cause you to move improperly, and that will cause other problems with wearing out joints and triggering pain. A great many people who experience spinal misalignment will alter their daily schedule because of the pain, and will become much less active, and that can lead to other problems. One of the issues which spinal misalignment can cause that is most problematic is a pinched nerve. When a patient experiences a pinched nerve, it can cause severe pain, or it can lead to numbness and tingling in any of the lower extremities.
Treatment approaches for low back pain
Get a long term treatment plan at Creekside Chiropractic
One of the most effective approaches for treating low back pain is the use of gentle chiropractic manipulation, because this can help restore all the normal mechanics for joint function. In many cases, corrective exercises can help tremendously, because they will strengthen and stabilize the spine into a new and healthier configuration.
It can also help to prevent regression into the previous poor spinal alignment situation. In some cases, it will be necessary to make use of traction, which is a process that stretches out the spine, so as to relieve pressure on the joints and help restore normal mechanics. This will allow the spine to resume its normal healthy position, and it will go a long way toward providing you with a pain-free lifestyle once you’ve undergone treatment.
We at Creekside Chiropractic offer chiropractic care, sports injury treatment, disc compression therapy, sciatica treatment, posture treatment, and more to relieve pain, restore spinal function, and preserve structural integrity. Also, we offer wellness programs to stay fit long-term. Book an appointment today!
