What is the Lumbar Spine?

The lower spine consists of intervertebral discs, lumbar vertebrae, and nerve roots. Ligaments, joints, bones, and connective tissue surround the spine. They work together to supper the upper body, provide flexibility, and allow movement like bending and sitting. However, when these musculoskeletal parts become stressed and injured, it results in pain.

How is it diagnosed

Getting a proper diagnosis for your back pain can help your chiropractor to determine the ideal treatment plan. Proper diagnosis will reveal the source and contributing factors through physical examination, and carefully considering your personal and family history. Other tests may include X-rays, MRI to view the musculoskeletal system and spine.

Chiropractic treatment in Charlotte NC for back pain

Chiropractors use a series of treatments designed to manipulate the joints, spine, and tissues of the body to improve functionality and relieve pain. Generally, this method is called spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), but there are other treatment techniques.

The most common treatments are physical therapy, rest, acupuncture, sports therapy, massage, and other various conservative therapies. Chiropractic treatment usually focuses on spinal alignment and manipulation to reduce pain and stimulate the body’s self-healing ability. Spine realignment reduces the pressure on the central nervous system.
