Visit Your Brookline Family Chiropractic Center for Lower Back Pain Treatment
Anybody can suffer lower back pain at any time but some people are more at risk for back pain. If you are over 40, carry extra body weight or have a job involving frequent bending and lifting, you have probably felt twinges of muscle pain or soreness radiating over your lower back at times. Mechanical issues with your back may also cause chronic lower back pain, including disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, arthritis, and disc herniation. Instead of going to your family physician for pain medications that provide temporary pain relief, schedule an appointment with your Brookline MA chiropractor for treatment directly addressing the underlying cause of your low back pain.
Diagnosing Low Back Pain
When you come to your appointment with Dr. London, your chiropractor will initially ask you to describe your symptoms, talk about when symptoms began and how long you have experienced lower back pain. After physically examining your back, our chiropractor may order imaging tests to further develop a precise diagnosis. X-rays, MRIs, CTs and even blood tests are helpful for providing information essential for discovering why you suffer low back pain and for creating a personalized lower back pain treatment program.
What are the Differences between Chronic Lower Back Pain and Acute Lower Back Pain?
Back muscle strain is the most common cause of acute back pain or pain that emerges quickly and typically resolves within a week or two with rest. Chronic back pain usually involves disorders or diseases of the spinal vertebrae that continue for weeks or months even with rest and use of NSAIDS. Lower back pain treatment provided by your Brookline chiropractor can relieve pain without drugs or surgery by removing nerve irritation caused by a malfunction spine, increasing spaces between vertebrae to allow spinal nerves to function normally and reducing inflammation of back muscles and ligaments.
Symptoms of Low Back Pain
In addition pain, soreness and stiffness in your lower back, you may also suffer:
- Pain radiating into your legs
- Numbness and tingling sensations in your buttocks and legs
- Weakness in your back and legs
- Headaches, recurring infections and a general feeling of unwellness
When mechanical problems are affecting your vertebrae, dysfunction within your nervous system may cause a variety of health issues extending beyond your back.
