Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

Your lumbar spine, or lower back, consists of interconnecting bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, and muscles that work together to support your trunk. The complexity of the lumbar spine makes it vulnerable to injury and pain.

Your lower back helps you twist and bend, and it supports the weight of your upper body. Muscles in your lower back facilitate hip movement as you walk and support the spinal column. The nerves in your lower back affect the sensations and power of movement in your pelvis, legs, and feet.

Lower back pain can be the result of an acute injury, such as injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints, or discs. Inflammation that results from such an injury causes pain. These muscle strains or sprains can result from:

  • Sudden movements, such as a fall
  • Poor posture
  • Sports injuries
  • Lifting a heavy object or twisting while lifting

You can also experience chronic lower back pain due to dysfunction, poor posture, a disc issue, or chronic tightness or misaligned joints.

When should I see a chiropractor for lower back pain?

Pain in the lower back isn’t always sharp and acute. You may experience pain that is dull or achy, and this interferes with your quality of life. Other types of pain that may be resolved with chiropractic care include:

  • Muscle spasms and tightness in the lower back, pelvis, and hips
  • Pain that worsens after long periods of sitting or standing
  • Difficulty getting up from a seated position or standing up straight
  • Stinging or numbing pain that radiates from the buttocks down the back of the thighs

How is lower back pain treated?

Dr. Lobacz offers manual spinal manipulations to help relieve your lower back pain. This clears up congestion in your spinal column to relieve compressed nerves and tight muscles. You experience improved function and greater range of motion in the back. Research supports that chiropractic care can help resolve lower back pain.

Regular adjustments can also help prevent lower back pain from returning, keeping you healthy and functioning for the long term.
