Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Your spine is a complicated network of muscles, nerves, and bones that work together to absorb force and provide flexibility and strength. Pain, discomfort, and loss of mobility come in many different forms, because there are many different ways to damage or injure your spine. Lower back pain may seem more specific, but it still has hundreds of potential causes, from degenerative illnesses to sudden injuries. Fortunately, there are also a variety of treatment options for low back pain.
Our Hilton Head Island chiropractors understand that every patient is unique, and they will work hard to identify the specific cause of your lower back pain symptoms so that we can personalize the right treatment for you. If you suffer from lower back pain, you may have one of the following conditions or injuries. These are among the most common causes of lower back pain, and we offer chiropractic manipulations and other all-natural chiropractic treatment options for all of them:
- Herniated Disc: Though this injury refers to the discs that make up your spine, it actually affects the nerves near these discs; when fluids leak out of the disc and into your nerves, it may cause radiating pain from your lower back down your legs.
- Back Muscle Strain: Lifting heavy objects or making sudden twists may actually cause microscopic tears in your muscles or ligaments, causing ongoing sensations of burning or tingling.
- Poor Posture: If you sit in a desk or stand for long periods of time, your back may suffer unless you have proper support and take frequent breaks.
- Accident Injury: Auto accidents may damage nerves or tendons, and inflammation may prevent your body from healing afterwards, leading to dull recurring aches that get worse over time.
Natural Treatment Options for Lower Back Pain in Hilton Head Island
No matter what is causing your back pain, you have your pick of treatment options. However, we recommend an all-natural path to pain relief, incorporating chiropractic techniques that approach your body as a whole and aim for long-term relief.
Instead of pharmaceuticals that cover up your symptoms for short-term relief – or surgical treatments that come with new, painful symptoms and require long-term recovery – we recommend a personalized, all-natural chiropractic regimen. Our chiropractic manipulations include manual adjustments and special devices to realign your spine, reduce inflammation, and improve functionality.
