Visit Our Lawrence Chiropractor For Lower Back Pain Treatment
Many people struggling with lower back pain grow accustomed to living with the condition. Sometimes months or years later, they finally decide to try chiropractic care. If this sounds like you, you're welcome to visit The Chiropractic Experience for drug-free relief. While you're here, our Lawrence chiropractor can evaluate your symptoms and decide if our integrative wellness methods are right for you.
Low Back Pain Causes
Motions such as bending, twisting, sitting, and lifting are all possible because of the flexible nature of the lumbar or lower spine. However, pressure on the spine from these and other repetitive movements can eventually lead to degeneration, inflammation, or pain. Injuries such as sprains or strains are also common due to overuse. Sometimes, the pain stems from a pinched nerve or nerve roots because of vertebral misalignment or a herniated disc. Low back pain can also come about due to:
- Lifting the wrong way
- Poor posture habits
- Spinal stenosis
- Pressure on the lumbar spine from obesity or pregnancy
- Degenerative disc disease
Our chiropractor can help treat your condition whether you're experiencing a dull ache or sharp, searing, or burning pain in the lower back, buttocks, legs, or feet. Other symptoms include stiffness, numbness, or a pins-and-needles sensation in the lower extremities. Symptoms may improve with rest or worsen when you're active.
Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Lawrence, KS
First, we will need to determine why you're experiencing pain or other symptoms. The results of a physical exam and health history may provide answers and help us tailor a treatment plan to address the underlying cause of your condition.
When it comes to back pain, Dr. Howarter generally uses advanced spinal adjustment techniques to realign the spinal joints. However, non-invasive adjustments do much more than this. The treatment provides lasting pain relief, takes the pressure off the nerve and disc, eliminates nerve interference symptoms, and improves range of motion. Natural healing can also take place with the spine back in alignment.
For overall healing, we give patients a customized exercise program that works to strengthen the back. There is also lifestyle coaching to help sustain the results of adjustment and prevent recurring pain.
Don't Go Another Day with Back Pain
