Low Back Pain (Pain in the Leg, Thigh and Pelvis)
Symptoms of low back pain
Low back pain is experienced somewhere between middle of the pelvis and the ribs at the back. Those who suffer this condition may feel a muscle ache or experience difficulties in doing a range of motions. Some people even complain about not being able to stand straight. The pain may be consistently present, felt only with certain movements of the body, or experienced as a shooting or stabbing pain that just happens any time. It is sometimes combined with sciatica — pain in the leg that extends down below the knee. It is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve on the leg.
Possible Causes of Lower Back Pain
Studies reveal that joint dysfunction is the most common cause of low back pain in Charlotte and surrounding areas. It may also be a symptom of a disorder or injury from somewhere else in the body; it has been known as a common symptom of aging. It is not surprising to hear low back pain complaints from people who do heavy lifting, or engage in sports or repetitive movements. Auto and work-related accidents are also associated with low back pain.
Back Pain Treatment in Charlotte, NC
Chiropractic Treatment Approach
Many people who suffer from low back pain simply ignore it or take medications for temporary relief, hoping it would resolve on its own. However, it is likely to re-occur; it may even develop into a chronic condition. The chiropractic approach involves adjustments in the spine and strengthening weak areas in the lower back. This approach provides faster recovery time as well as significantly lower risk of recurrence.
ChiroCarolina™ chiropractors diagnose and treat every case of low back pain individually, taking into consideration the unique underlying factors and causes affecting the patient to ensure full recovery to optimum health. Through precise and gentle adjustment of a specific joint in the spine, reflex-related pain and muscle spasms are reduced in the pelvis, thighs and legs. Low back mobilization relieves the irritation or compression on associated soft tissues. For complete recovery from low back pain, ChiroCarolina™ also provides neuromuscular electrical stimulation and physiotherapy to support the chiropractic treatment.
