Learning About Lower Back Pain
Lower Back Pain Boca RatonAn intricate network of muscles, tendons, ligaments, vertebrae, and other structures work together to form the lower back, the region of the back supported by the lumbar spine. Several types of injuries, diseases, and conditions cause mild to severe pain and discomfort in the lower back such as sprain, sports injury, personal injury, herniated or bulging discs, arthritis, spinal stenosis, fractures, degenerative disc disease, and others. Lower back pain is not only uncomfortable, but also hinders daily activities and the rest of the body’s ability to function properly.
Managing and Treating Lower Back Pain with Chiropractic Care
Regardless of the medical condition causing lower back pain, a subluxation (misaligned vertebrae) of the spine typically accompanies the underlying issue. Misaligned vertebrae lead to reduced circulation, inflammation, pain, and cause blockages within the nervous system which impede the body’s ability to communicate with brain and function at an optimal level. A blocked nervous system can lead to any number of other health issues as the result of low-functioning digestive system, immune system, and/or cardiovascular system.
Using spinal adjustments and massage therapy, chiropractic care seeks to realign the spine, removing nervous system blockages, improving circulation, and reducing inflammation. In turn, chiropractic adjustments help the body heal more quickly, allowing it to return to an optimal state of wellness. A natural complement to spinal adjustments, massage therapy relieves pain and accelerates healing by reducing muscle tension, increasing circulation, and reducing inflammation.
In addition to providing an effective method of lower back pain management and treatment, chiropractic care is also a natural alternative to invasive surgeries and pain medications which often do more harm than good. Surgery on the lower back can result in a lifetime of recovery with some patients never quite achieving full health. Chiropractic care, however, requires virtually no recovery time and has no negative or potentially harmful side effects like pain medications.
