Common Causes of Low Back Pain and Injury
Low back pain and injury causes can be as diverse as each patient, but the most common causes our chiropractor treats include:
1. Back Injury
Car accident injuries, sports injuries, work injuries and day-to-day injuries are common among active adults. Suddenly twisting the wrong way, falling or being in a car accident can jostle your vertebrae, shifting them out of correct alignment, which pinches nerves. These injuries also strain muscles, ligaments and tendons, causing pain, inflammation and restricted movement. Depending on which nerves are pinched, lower back injuries can cause other health problems, from bulging and herniated discs to headaches, sciatica and more.
2. Poor Posture and Ergonomics
Almost half of low back pain patients experience this symptom from sitting at a desk all day. Sleeping on a poor mattress can hurt the lower back too. Poor form and ergonomics while working out, slouching, hunching etc. can all slowly pull your spine out of alignment.
3. Pregnancy Lower Back Pain
Pregnancy lower back pain afflicts at least half of expectant mothers at a time when painkillers are contraindicated. Chiropractic care is essential to help moms stay balanced, relaxed and prepare for a healthy delivery.
Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain Relief and Injury Recovery
Chiropractic care gets to the heart of each of these lower back pain causes to provide natural, lasting relief and recovery. Our chiropractor carefully diagnoses misalignments (subluxations) in your spine and uses precise thrusts and pressure to gently adjust vertebrae back into correct alignment. This releases pinched nerves, removes pressure from intervertebral discs and relaxes surrounding soft tissues.
