Chiropractic Adjustments and Lower Back Pain

April 15, 2014

At some point, an overwhelming majority of people will suffer from lower back pain. In certain cases, it may be a temporary condition, while for others it may become a chronic condition that lasts a lifetime. For many people, their first reaction is to seek medical care that often involves masking symptoms with drug therapy. However, this can lead to more serious health issues. Chiropractic adjustments have constantly proven more effective than conventional treatments, and patients consistently report greater improvement and satisfaction when receiving chiropractic care.

There are several options available with chiropractic care and lower back pain. Your doctor of chiropractic may choose one or a combination of techniques depending on the cause of your lower back pain.

Spinal Adjustments

In order to release entrapped nerves, correct subluxations (misaligned vertebrae) and improve nerve flow through the nervous system, chiropractic care involves spinal adjustments. These adjustments are specific and scientifically targeted movements that help realign vertebrae and remove nerve pressure.

Chiropractic Mobilization

Using low-velocity adjustments combined with some stretching and movement of affected joints and connecting tissues, this form of care focuses on restoring range of motion in your lower back. This practice also improves circulation and allows your muscles to relax and maintain the position adjustments have set for your vertebrae.

Chiropractic Care Plan

In some cases your doctor of chiropractic may outline a chiropractic care plan that involves your participation to maximize your physical improvement. Your care plan may involve diet, exercise and a combination of adjustments and mobilization techniques. Patients who follow care plans that are carefully designed by their doctors of chiropractic are likely to achieve the most success in correcting the cause of their lower back pain.
