Finding Relief From Low Back Pain With Spinal Decompression

Share

Introduction

Lower back pain is a common problem that affects many people worldwide. It can hinder individuals from engaging in physical activities or working on important projects. Failure to treat it promptly can result in disability. Chronic musculoskeletal conditions can also be associated with low back pain, causing the body and spine to misalign and surrounding muscles to overexert themselves, thereby affecting lower body extremities. This article explores the effects of low back pain on the body and the various treatment options available to relieve it. We work with certified medical providers who use our patients’ valuable information to provide low back pain treatments for individuals with musculoskeletal pain related to their lumbar spine. We encourage patients to ask essential questions and seek education from our associated medical providers about their condition. Dr. Jimenez, D.C., provides this information as an educational service. Disclaimer

 

Low Back Pain Causing More Issues In The Body

Are you experiencing discomfort in your lower back? Do you feel stiffness or pain when stretching? Have you felt a radiating pain down your legs? Many people worldwide have dealt with low back pain, a common issue. Research studies reveal that low back pain represents a complex social and economic problem, as it can lead to various issues that overlap and can stem from many potential sources affecting the abdominal cavity in the body. These include nerve roots, muscles, fascial structures, bones and joints, intervertebral discs, and organs. Research studies also indicate that various factors can contribute to the development of low back pain and impact an individual’s routine function. 

 

 

Since low back pain is complex, it is often associated with other musculoskeletal disorders affecting the lower extremities. Some factors contributing to low back pain include prolonged sitting, lifting and carrying heavy objects, poor posture, working with power tools, and vibrating workstations. Many individuals try to continue their routine despite experiencing low back pain, hoping it will go away independently. However, repetitive motions can cause the pain to recur, leading to spinal subluxation. Fortunately, there are ways to manage low back pain while reducing its associated symptoms.

 


The Hidden Link Of Chiropractic Care & Metabolism-Video

Low back pain is a common issue affecting millions of people worldwide. Multiple factors can contribute to its development, and the severity of the problem can vary. Treatment is often sought to reduce symptoms and promote healing. Research studies revealed that holistic and flexible approaches, such as chiropractic care, can effectively alleviate low back pain and its effects on the abdominals and lower extremities. Combining chiropractic care with other therapies can help individuals recover quickly and effectively. Check out the video above for more information on how chiropractic care and the body’s metabolism can help address low back pain and its overlapping risk profiles.


Various Treatments For Low Back Pain

 

Low back pain is a frequent problem that can make even the simplest tasks challenging and uncomfortable. Research studies revealed that low back pain is often undertreated due to its complex nature and potential for overlapping risk factors that can cause additional symptoms. Fortunately, various treatments are available to relieve the associated symptoms and realign the body. Down below are some of the remedies to alleviate low back pain.

 

Medications

While medications can temporarily relieve back pain, they may only work for acute low back pain. For those with chronic low back pain, taking medications can result in unwanted side effects that may worsen pre-existing conditions. According to Dr. Eric Kaplan, D.C., FIAMA, and Dr. Perry Bard, D.C., authors of “Ultimate Spinal Decompression,” over-the-counter NSAIDs and acetaminophen can be helpful for low back pain, but taking more than the recommended dosage can have negative effects on the body.

 

Spinal Decompression

Chronic low back pain can significantly impact people’s lives, so many opt for non-invasive treatments. These treatments are not only safer than invasive options, but they are also cost-effective and gentle. One such treatment is spinal decompression, which has been shown to improve lower back pain, according to research studies. This technique uses gentle traction to alleviate low back pain caused by compression on the spinal discs and nerve roots. Spinal decompression is a safe and non-invasive solution that can help improve mobility in the lower back. By alleviating affected nerve roots instead of aggravating them, patients can experience relief from chronic low back pain.

 

Conclusion

Experiencing low back pain can greatly affect your health and wellness, causing you to miss out on important activities and work. Unfortunately, this is a common issue that affects many individuals. When left untreated, low back pain can lead to more chronic problems and misaligned body posture. However, spinal decompression is a gentle traction technique that can help relieve low back pain by releasing aggravating nerve roots and stretching affected muscles. This treatment can be very effective and enable many individuals to return to normal activities without pain.
