The lower back absorbs much of the impacts and strains of day to day activities including walking, running, and even sitting. The lower back, or lumbar region, is also an integral part of maintaining core strength and good posture. As many patients lack core strength and have bad posture it’s all too common for them to experience pain in the low back due to weak muscles, misalignment, and muscle imbalances. The lumbar spine is particularly susceptible to herniated discs which can cause a significant amount of pain and sciatica symptoms. Patients may also experience low back pain due to conditions like osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis.
Patients will undergo a comprehensive exam when they seek care for low back pain at Active Medical Center. The doctor will review their medical history, ask questions about current lifestyle habits, and perform a physical review to observe any restrictions or pain in movement. If further information is needed to make a full diagnosis, the doctor will order any number of additional diagnostic tests including x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. The patient may also have a manual exam where the doctor feels for imbalance, deformities, or trigger points.
The teams at Active Medical Center work together to treat patients with lower back pain. The aim of all treatment is to provide natural, drug-free pain relief while healing the underlying condition responsible for the pain. Treatment may involve a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy, functional medicine, and rehabilitation. Chiropractic care can resolve any misalignment in the spine that’s contributing to the low back pain while physical therapy corrects muscle imbalances and reduces swelling which can cause pressure to build up on nerves. It can also help relieve any tightness or trigger points in the muscles and soft tissues. The different teams at Active Medical Center collaborate to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to addressing low back pain. They understand that each patient has unique needs and that treatment must be customized for each patient. They’re dedicated to finding the root cause of any pain so that the condition or injury can be treated and healed, fully resolving the cause of the pain while also providing relief.
