Non-Surgical Lower Back Pain Treatment at Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc.
Nothing can get you feeling low faster than low back pain. Both acute injuries and longstanding chronic conditions can limit motion and cause devastating pain in this critical part of your body, depriving you of your favorite activities, your ability to earn an income, and the basic quality of life that everyone is entitled to enjoy. Here at Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc., we understand your misery -- as well as your reluctance to undergo major back surgery. Fortunately, our chiropractic treatment and other conservative techniques can ease your low back problem non-invasively.
What Can Go Wrong With the Lower Back
The lower back is like the base of a tower tasked with supporting every pound of weight that rises from it. This area, which includes the lumbar and sacral spinal column and several large muscle groups, must support your trunk and upper extremities even when you're in motion, adjusting for constant changes in weight distribution and posture. The flexibility of the spine, with its collection of jointed vertebrae, is also a potential weakness because these structures can be thrown out of alignment with other, causing low back pain and stiffness. These changes may also affect the muscles, causing tightness, strain, and spasms. Chronic causes of low back pain include:
- Postural changes associated with pregnancy or weak back muscles
- Spinal misalignments that alter your weight distribution
- Degenerative changes or inflammation of the vertebral joints
- Bulging or herniated discs, which can compress major nerve roots in the lumbar spine (often causing sciatica)
- Changes in the spinal canal (stenosis) or vertebral position (spondylolisthesis)
Of course, it's also possible to sustain major damage to your lower back in an auto accident, sports accident or workplace accident. These incidents can cause pinched nerves misaligned vertebrae, torn muscles, and herniated discs all at the same time.
