Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain

A custom lower back pain treatment plan can provide pain relief and prevent long-term damage.

Low back pain is one of the most common reasons why people visit their Salina chiropractor. When you receive regular adjustments as part of your lower back pain treatment plan, you’ll:

  • Experience relief from pain
  • Prevent recurring pain
  • Reduce or eliminate the need for surgical treatment

The Consequences of Putting Off Lower Back Pain Treatment

Pain is an indicator that there’s an imbalance in the body.

Unfortunately, instead of taking immediate action, many view pain as something they just need to deal with until it becomes unbearable. Unfortunately, this can lead to negative consequences, including:

  • Worsening pain
  • Long-term damage

When your body is out of alignment, or you’ve sustained an injury, the body starts building scar tissue and initiates an inflammatory response. The inflammation, if left untreated, can cause:

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Stiffness that impacts mobility

Similarly, if scar tissue builds up, the strong, inflexible band of tissue will reduce your flexibility and mobility, while causing even more pain.

Fortunately, you can tip the problem in the bud by seeking lower back pain treatment from your Salina chiropractor. Proper spinal alignment will reduce inflammation, while various therapies can be implemented to break up scar tissue.

Chiropractic Therapies That Relieve Low Back Pain

Here are a few of the therapeutic options included in a lower back pain treatment plan.

Spinal Adjustments

If your spine is out of alignment in one area, you’ll experience pain throughout your body. Treating misalignment in your lower back will help ease your pain there and in your neck and extremities.

Massage Therapy

Your massage therapist can help ease muscle tension and break up scar tissue.

Decompression Therapy

Nerve impingement due to spinal misalignment or a herniated disc is a common cause of back pain. Decompression therapy takes the pressure off the spinal nerves, providing almost immediate relief.

Cold Laser Therapy

Laser treatment reduces inflammation, improves circulation, and promotes faster healing.

Interferential Therapy

Electronic charges promote blood flow and aid in healing.

Exercise, Ergonomic, and Lifestyle Changes

Low back pain can often be the result of a sedentary lifestyle. Sitting at a desk all day causes muscle tension and can even shorten certain muscles.

Daily stretching and practicing good ergonomics in the workplace can reduce low back pain.
