Spinal Manipulation & Decompression Treatment For Low Back Pain

Introduction

Low back pain is a common issue worldwide that can cause individuals to miss work and require emergency care. This type of pain occurs in the lumbar region of the spine, which supports the upper body and is surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tissues. If left untreated, it can cause disability. Fortunately, treatments available can reduce pain and alleviate other symptoms. This article will explain how low back pain occurs, how it relates to disorders, and how spinal manipulation and decompression treatment can help. We utilize and incorporate valuable information about our patients to certified medical providers using non-surgical therapies like spinal decompression to alleviate pain-like symptoms associated with the low back and reduce its correlating musculoskeletal disorders. We encourage referring patients to associated medical providers based on their findings while supporting that education is a remarkable tool to ask our providers essential questions at the patient’s request. Dr. Jimenez, D.C., comprises this information as an educational service. Disclaimer

 

How Does Low Back Pain Occur?

 

Do you frequently experience discomfort or pain in your lower back? Does it bother you when you bend down or lift heavy objects? Or are you dealing with radiating pain similar to sciatic nerve pain? These are all common symptoms associated with low back pain. Research studies have revealed that low back pain can stem from various potential sources, including anatomical, neurological, and psychological factors, making identifying the pain’s root cause complex. Additionally, research studies have revealed that low back pain can vary among many individuals and are complex, depending on how severe the symptoms affect the body. Low back pain can occur when the spinal discs in the lumbar regions of the spine become compressed due to unwanted pressure or axial overload or when the surrounding muscles are overused or underused.

 

Disorders Correlating With Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a complex musculoskeletal disorder caused by various factors. Research studies have revealed two types of low back pain: specific and non-specific. Non-specific low back pain is usually caused by overuse of muscles or wear and tear on the spinal vertebrae and joints. On the other hand, specific low back pain is caused by a relationship between environmental factors and the pain itself, such as compressed neural structures, joint inflammation, or spinal instability. Studies also suggest low back pain can affect an individual’s health and daily activities. Low back pain can also cause referred pain, meaning it can be felt in a different area of the body, affecting vital organs or muscles. For example, sciatic nerve pain is often associated with low back pain.

 


The Path To Healing- Video

Have you been experiencing aches and pain in your lumbar spine? Does it hurt when you twist or bend over or lift something heavy? These pains are often related to low back pain, which can also be connected to other chronic conditions that affect the body. Low back pain is a common and complex issue affecting the body’s upper and lower parts. The lumbar region of the body is responsible for stabilizing the upper body’s weight, and the surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tissues protect the spinal cord. When the body experiences unwanted pressure or pathological factors, it can lead to low back pain and its associated symptoms. Unfortunately, back pain can significantly impact daily life, causing people to miss work or be unable to participate in regular activities. However, treatments available can reduce the effects of low back pain and its associated symptoms. The video above demonstrates how chiropractic care and spinal decompression can help alleviate low back pain, restore stability and mobility to the lumbar region, and improve a person’s quality of life.


How Spinal Manipulation & Decompression Treatment Relieves Low Back Pain

 

Many treatments available can help individuals struggling with low back pain. According to “The Ultimate Spinal Decompression” by Dr. Eric Kaplan, D.C., FIAMA, and Dr. Perry Bard, D.C., chiropractic care is one such treatment that can be effective. This type of care uses spinal manipulation to alleviate the effects of low back pain. Chiropractic care can offer relief by gently re-aligning the spine and reducing subluxation. Studies have shown that this treatment, known as decompression treatment, can reduce stress on posterior muscles, improving pain intensity and functionality. Additionally, decompression treatment can further help by stretching the lumbar spine and rehydrating discs. Both of these treatments are non-invasive, gentle, and non-surgical and can increase mobility and stability in the lumbar spine while reducing pain.

 

Conclusion

Low back pain can significantly affect a person’s ability to move around and maintain balance. It’s a common issue that can lead to disability and extended periods away from work, depending on its intensity. The causes can arise from various factors, including environmental factors and unwanted pressure. However, non-surgical, gentle, and non-invasive treatments can help alleviate the symptoms of low back pain. These treatments can realign the lumbar spine and stretch the affected muscles, relieving pain. By utilizing these treatments, individuals can become more mindful of their back health and prevent future injuries.
