Some injuries are caused by falls, auto accidents, household accidents, work accidents, and more. Fortunately, seeing one of our chiropractors in West Fargo can help you identify why you are experiencing lower back pain and implement habits that will help reduce your pain. Contact Pinnacle Chiropractic and Rehab to schedule a consultation with one of our chiropractors.
Causes of Lower Back Pain
There are many reasons why people experience lower back pain. Some of these can be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as kidney problems, endometritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and even some cancers. More often, the back pain can be traced to an injury in the muscles, ligaments, or discs in the spine. Arthritis can also settle in the lower back, especially for those who have ankylosing spondylitis, which causes a person to have a lot of pain and stiffness in the back upon waking. Fracturing bones in the spine or pelvic area will also lead to lower back pain.
Treating Lower Back Pain
We look beyond resolving your immediate discomfort and work with you to find ways to prevent the same pains from returning, or at least help you, so the pain happens less often with less intensity. Before treatment, we conduct a full analysis to determine the cause of the injury to make sure the correct treatment is used.
Spinal manipulation is what most people think of when they think of chiropractic care. A misaligned spine can contribute to undue pressure on the spinal nerves and discs. Spinal manipulation can help ease inflammation and reduce pain.
Exercise and Education
When you see a chiropractor, you are expected to be an active participant in your healing process. Some exercises can help to strengthen your spine, dietary changes you can implement that will lessen inflammation, strength training, and posture habits you can develop that will make your lower back less vulnerable to pain and injury.
Our chiropractors balance traditional chiropractic care with other holistic care options, including soft tissue therapies, spinal decompression, rehab and stabilizing plans, and more. If these seem appropriate for you, we will discuss them at the time of your assessment so you can make an informed decision.
