Lower back pain is incredibly common in adults. It’s the reason most adults give for missing work or being unable to participate in physical activities. Our chiropractors, Dr. King and Dr. Son, at Premier Wellness in Cape Coral can diagnose the causes of your back pain and provide you with conservative treatment options.
Causes of Back Pain
Our chiropractor treats back pain that is caused by certain conditions, including herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis. Injuries treated by our chiropractor include sprains, strains and overuse injuries.
Back Pain Symptoms
Back pain symptoms can range from mild and annoying to severe and debilitating. Common symptoms include localized, dull pain, pain that spans from the lower back into the legs, muscle spasms, loss of range of motion and muscle weakness. When these symptoms occur for less than three months, they are considered acute. When the pain and other symptoms occur for longer than three months, it is considered chronic.
Chiropractic Treatments for Lower Back Pain
Our chiropractors, Dr. King and Dr. Son, offer several chiropractic treatments to help reduce low back pain symptoms and heal the injuries. A few of our treatment options include spinal adjustments, trigger point therapy, nutritional counseling and corrective exercises.
Spinal adjustments are beneficial in ensuring the vertebrae are aligned correctly. This helps improve the range of motion of the joint while lowering inflammation and pain. Trigger point therapy is used to help reduce soft tissue pain by identifying and correcting extremely tight, sore spots in the muscles.
Nutritional counseling is beneficial for ensuring that your body is receiving the proper amount of nutrients while you heal, and corrective exercises and stretches are used to strengthen and improve the flexibility of injured muscles.
