Whether you’re experiencing lower back pain due to accident or injury, chronic health problems, repetitive stress or overuse, or poor posture, a doctor of chiropractic can help. Chiropractors are dedicated to finding natural, non-invasive treatment options for lower back pain, without relying on the use of prescription medication or surgery. 

Lower back pain can be one of the most debilitating chronic pain issues, as it dramatically affects your ability to work, enjoy your hobbies, and even just relax at home. At Integrity Chiropractic in Beckley, WV, our doctors of chiropractic specialize in natural chiropractic care and massage therapy treatment options for lower back pain. 

Primary Causes of Lower Back Pain 

The most common causes of lower back pain are mechanical, organic, and idiopathic. Mechanical means that the pain is localized in the spine: the vertebrae, joints, discs, muscles, ligaments, or tissues. Organic means that it is the result of illness or disease, such as disc degeneration or arthritis. Idiopathic means that there is no absolute cause, but the lower back pain may be the result of overuse, repetitive stress, or other lifestyle conditions.

Your doctor of chiropractic will do a full examination in order to determine the cause of your back pain. This will include a patient history, as well as testing like x-rays and blood work. It is important to be thorough and honest with your chiropractor during this process. Once your chiropractor determines if your lower back pain is due to a strain, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, or sciatica, he can recommend the ideal course of treatment.

Natural, Non-Invasive Chiropractic Treatments for Lower Back Pain

A recent study on the use of natural, non-invasive treatment options for lower back pain found that, after only six weeks of treatment, participants reported less pain, less disability, and improvement in overall function, and a decrease in reliance on pain medication. After your chiropractor completes a full physical exam and determines the underlying cause of your lower back pain, he can recommend a variety of chiropractic care treatment options to help you ease back into your daily routine.

Your chiropractor may recommend spinal manipulation or spinal decompression therapy to help realign joints or vertebrae that may be out of place and causing pain. He will likely also suggest that you undergo massage therapy, rehabilitation therapy, or acupuncture if he thinks that it will ease your pain.
