Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain sometimes has an obvious precipitating factor; other times it's not entirely clear what's causing it (fortunately, it does respond positively to chiropractic care in either case). The following are some of the most frequently cited reasons for or underlying factors contributing to a person's lower back pain and dysfunction:
- Posture: especially when using a smartphone or computer
- Work, sport, and lifestyle demands: frequent heavy lifting, frequent sitting, etc.
- Trauma: e.g., auto accident, slip and fall
- A prior history of back pain: having it once increases your risk of having it again
- Mental and psychological stress
- Physical conditions including arthritis, sciatica, disc herniations, disc bulges, joint misalignments, muscle strains, and ligament sprains
Symptoms Associated With Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is often chronic in nature and described as dull, achy and sore, although it can become sharp with certain movements (although exact type, intensity, duration, and pattern depend on the unique individual). Additional symptoms often include back stiffness, tender muscles, numbness, tingling, and weakness in one or both legs (if nerve impingement is involved), and decreased hamstring flexibility.
Diagnosing & Treating Lower Back Pain with our Orange City or Daytona Beach Chiropractors
Typically, the main goals of lower back pain treatment include identifying the source or sources of your pain and resolving these as well as treating the symptoms. So, we may prescribe corrective exercises to maximize the flexibility and overall balance of your postural muscles while also providing massage therapy or chiropractic adjustments to relieve tension in the nervous system, relax tight and tense muscles, and facilitate healing through increased circulation. Exact treatment plans depend on the individual, and we'll be sure to modify our techniques to meet your needs and comfort.
