Lower Back Pain Answers with Our West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic
Your lower back can be thought of as the "hub" of your body, the base of the spinal column that balances and supports your entire musculoskeletal system. It is little wonder, then, that lower back has the power to completely disable otherwise-healthy people. When you can't bend over, turn your body, or even lie down comfortably, you need answers -- and West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic in Omaha, NE can provide them.
Causes of Lower Back Pain in Omaha, NE
Like every other part of the world, Omaha NE sees its share of lower back pain. We've seen these symptoms caused by a variety of underlying issues, including:
Acute sports, workplace, auto, and other personal injuries that herniate discs and dislocate vertebral joints
Jobs and sporting activities that require constant bending, stooping or twisting, which results in overuse injuries and chronic strain
Poor posture, possibly aided by a spinal misalignment, which upsets your musculoskeletal balance and strains your muscles
Foot problems such as abnormal arches or non-ergonomic footwear, which can cause low back as well as foot pain
Wear and tear related problems such as bulging discs, spinal stenosis, and spinal arthritis
Pregnancy, which alters your spinal alignment and also places extra weight on the lower back
Obesity, which can aggravate muscular strain from an unbalanced spine
Low back pain may not be the only symptoms you're experiencing. This issue can be joined by neurological pain, tingling or numbness in the buttock or leg if the sciatic nerve roots are being impinged. This combination of symptoms can make practically any position, from sitting and standing to lying down, a painful challenge.
Your Omaha Chiropractor Can Help Your Lower Back Heal
Any of our three Omaha chiropractors at our West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic will be happy to evaluate your spinal alignment, symptoms, weight, everyday lifestyle, and medical history to determine why your lower back is hurting. If your spine is out of alignment, we can administer chiropractic adjustments (including prenatal chiropractic care) to correct the imbalance. Acupuncture can relieve pain without the use of drugs, while massage therapy can loosen tight muscles and enhance healing in damaged tissues. You may also benefit from lifestyle changes that help you avoid overuse injuries and maintain a more natural posture.
