Charlotte Low Back pain treatment
Chiropractic treatment is remarkably effective for treating Charlotte low back pain. Our lower back, also called the lumbar region, is vulnerable for the development of problems that can lead to chronic pain. First of all, heavy upper torso is supported by the lower back. Our lower back muscles must be in good shape to carry and support this weight. If not, any sudden or unexpected twisting movements can cause muscular strain and damage. The pain can become so intense that it results in limited movement. Charlotte low back pain is unusually common. It is estimated that 80 percent of adults will be affected by low back pain at some point over the course of their life.
Understanding the lower back
Our lower back is part of our back and spine that starts just below the rib cage, ending directly above the tail bone. In anatomical terms, the lower back is comprised of the 5 lowest vertebrae of the spine and all the associated muscles, tendons, and discs. The discs of the spine provide cushioning that makes pain free movement possible. Spinal discs do shrink as they age. When aging discs shrink, they become less effective and the common result is pain and restricted movement of the spine.
Beyond aging or degenerative discs, the majority of low back pain cases are caused by minor musculoskeletal injuries or muscle strain. These injuries can usually be healed by the body after a few weeks, but rest is required to do so. Chiropractors understand that such injuries respond very well to a number of pain free and drug free treatments, which could include gentle spinal manipulations, heat and cold therapy, and rehabilitative exercises. Although we perceive a few weeks’ time to be a reasonably short time for a back injury to heal.
Back pain treatment
When patients develop serious lower back injuries such as herniated discs, back sprain, curvature of the spine, and sciatica. Chiropractors have the expertise and experience to diagnose and treat all of these injuries. Chiropractic treatment is designed to be natural and pain free. Chiropractors do not use painful interventions such as surgery, and they do not use any drugs or painkillers. In addition to the relief of lower back pain, chiropractic treatment is beneficial for symptoms such as: numbness and tingling, pain in the hips and/or buttocks, stiffness when walking, weakness, and loss of balance.
If left untreated, back problems will only become more serious. You should get a chiropractic evaluation as soon as you experience pain. Regular chiropractic treatment will most likely shorten healing time.
