For those struggling with low back pain, treatment options can be daunting and overwhelming. Anyone considering invasive surgery is undoubtedly faced with the fears associated with surgery and a lengthy recovery period. As well, relying on over-the-counter or prescription painkillers is not without risk either.

Fortunately, at The Fix Medical, our dedicated team can create a treatment plan for low back pain that avoids both of these routes. Low back pain treatment with chiropractic care is a proven, safe alternative that can not only alleviate those twinges of discomfort but help enhance daily activity and quality of life.

How Chiropractic Care Treats Low Back Pain

The first step in properly treating low back pain with chiropractic care is to determine the underlying cause or source of the pain. Low back pain is rooted in any of the following conditions:

  • Major injury to the area following an accident or sports-related strain

  • Arthritis

  • General inflammation from overuse (e.g., standing too long on the job)

  • Referred pain from another affected area

Once we discover the root cause(s) of low back pain, chiropractic treatment generally begins with re-aligning the spine via spinal manipulation. Sometimes referred to as an “adjustment,” these treatments will be more frequent in duration at the outset of the treatment plan and will gradually decrease over time as lower back pain is managed.

Other treatment options for low back pain may include a back brace. A back brace can help unload some of the weight normally placed on the lower back, in this process reducing pressure on the spine’s joints, discs and muscles. By reducing spinal pressure a back brace may lessen painful muscle tension that is a common protective reaction following an injury. Additionally, we may recommend physical rehabilitation to help increase mobility, balance and core strength.
