When it comes to pain, lower back pain can be very debilitating. In fact, many cases of disability occur due to lower back pain. People with this type of pain can suffer from it acutely, or in a short amount of time and suddenly, or they can suffer from months and years of chronic lower back pain. Whether the pain is acute or chronic, it may be important to get the proper treatment from a chiropractor to help get to the root of the pain instead of simply mask the symptoms.

What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain has a variety of causes they might be different from upper back pain. Lower back pain can occur suddenly and can feel like a dull ache or a suddenly sharp pain. Both are incredibly serious and can be caused by issues such as a pinched nerve. This is known as sciatica, which is a nerve that runs down the lower back and toward each outer leg.
Other pinched nerves can occur due to misalignments in the spine or herniated discs. Herniated discs are also a serious condition that can be treated by a chiropractor on our team. Still other causes of lower back pain can include a pulled muscle, an injury due to overuse, or something as simple as twisting wrong.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
A trained chiropractor on our team will be able to determine the exact cause of your lower back pain. He or she can determine if the pain is due to an issue with the back muscles, an issue with the spine, or if it is due to another injury or even degenerative disorders. He or she can do so by conducting a full physical exam.
Afterward, he or she can provide treatment including manual adjustments and even spinal adjustments. Spinal decompression is also a common therapy used for lower back pain and can help alleviate pain from compressed nerves.
