Lower Back Pain Chiropractor

How to treat lower back pain | AICA TuckerAccording to the American Chronic Pain Association, approximately 80% of all Americans will eventually suffer from some level or form of lower back pain.

Any individual, regardless of their age, can develop a particular variation of back pain that leaves them either in a continuous state of discomfort or completely immobilized.

Those who live more sedentary lifestyles or people who work in some type of occupation like construction are highly susceptible to lower back injuries.

One of the concerns for patients who experience lower back pain is how recurrent it can become if ignored or left untreated.

Lower back pain is the second most common reason for needing to visit a doctor in the United States. It is also the most popular reason offered for missing work.

According to a 2010 report offered by the Global Burden of Disease, lower back pain is the number one cause of disability across the world.

The medical costs associated with lower back pain in the United States exceeds $90 billion each year. Of the total amount spent, 26$ billion is allocated toward treatment.

If you consider the entire costs connected to treatment, lost wages, and diminished productivity, lower back pain can offers devastating personal and social implications and should be treated immediately.

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

Twisting your body in unusual or sudden ways, lifting heavy objects without using proper safety equipment, and experiencing some type of slip-and-fall accident are some of the most common causes of lower back pain.

One of the reasons why lower back pain is experienced by so many people throughout the world is because of how sensitive the muscles and nerves in your back are.

This fragile environment makes these parts of your body more vulnerable to the impact you absorb on a daily basis.

If you or someone you know has experienced the following conditions and are in a constant state of pain, make sure you give us a call right away.

Our team of experienced Chiropractors are trained primarily on how to address musculoskeletal conditions and can treat lower back pain with a variety of techniques.

Nerve Root Syndromes

Often mistaken as a pinched nerve, nerve root syndromes are of then result of a bulging or herniated disc located between your lower back bones.

Patients who are experiencing pulsating, sharp pain that shoots up and down your back should seek medical attention right away, as this particular condition can eventually lead to Sciatica.

Herniated Discs

Lower Back Back Treatment in Tucker | AICA TuckerAs your spinal discs begin to deteriorate with age, the central portion of these discs can become misaligned and press against your nerve roots. This environment makes you more vulnerable to injury as a result of an unexpected fall or sudden twist

When your intervertebral discs begin to lose their mass over time, the amount of space that exists between your spinal discs also shrink.

Because of this, your lower back can be injured with the slightest amount of trauma that leads to nerve root impingement or inflammation.

Spinal Stenosis

This type of condition is caused as your intervertebral discs lose volume and moisture over time, which decreases your disc spaces.
