Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a common ailment for many. Because this condition is frequently observed in older patients, many believe it is simply part of the aging process but this is not true. Low back pain is often the response to uncorrected spine trauma or stressors that have gone untreated. The developed imbalance in the vertebral alignment or function is called a subluxation. Your lifestyle can be a big factor in how your back ages. At West Omaha Chiropractic and Sports Injury Clinic let our chiropractors delve in deeper beyond traditional treatments to help find and treat the cause behind your pain.

Low Back Pain

Typical lower back pain from uncorrected trauma, resulting in a subluxation, can lead to  the following :

  •     Herniated disc or other disc injuries
  •     Spinal stenosis
  •     Sciatica
  •     Muscle strains
  •     Scoliosis (spine curvature) or other conditions with increase stress
  •     Arthritis

Certain other health conditions can also result in back pain such as:

  •     Fibromyalgia
  •     Kidney and bladder issues
  •     Pregnancy
  •     Endometriosis
  •     Ovarian cysts
  •     And cancer

Treatments

Back pain is usually categorized into two types acute and chronic. Many cases are acute and with some initial rest and ice the back works to mend itself. It is wise to get evaluated by your chiropractor to ensure it heals correctly. If an imbalance in the spine structure remains, over time it will become a chronic problem.  There are numerous treatment options out there as well for those dealing with chronic lower back pain. Most are bogged down with being served pain prescriptions which just covers the pain, but does not treat and promote healing or structure balance.
