Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes low back pain?

Many different factors could be behind your low back pain, and determining the exact cause can be challenging. Some of the more common causes of this type of pain include:

  • A herniated disc in your lumbar spine
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Facet joint dysfunction
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Traumatic injury
  • Compressions fracture

Your spine is comprised of a network of bones, tendons, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. A problem with any of these components can lead to low back pain.

How can chiropractic care ease low back pain?

For back pain caused by misalignment of the spine, chiropractic care can help restore proper spine positioning. That process relieves the pressure placed on your nerves and surrounding soft tissues, going a long way toward reducing low back pain.

Your treatment path begins with a thorough diagnostic examination and health history. If you’re not a good candidate for chiropractic treatment, Dr. Varnay can direct you toward other options.

What happens during a chiropractic session for low back pain?

Spinal manipulation is an excellent treatment option for low back pain. The process is a hands-on, drug-free, and noninvasive approach that yields impressive results.

Dr. Varnay performs spinal manipulation by applying carefully controlled force to the portion of your spine that is not in proper alignment. That force is often delivered through techniques that utilize a carefully directed force. This is the technique most often associated with chiropractic care.

Why choose chiropractic for low back pain?

Back pain is a serious health issue, both on personal and public health levels. All too often, treatment efforts focus on pharmaceuticals to manage pain and on invasive surgery to address spinal abnormalities.

Chiropractic care offers a different approach, one that uses noninvasive adjustments to restore proper spinal function and relieve pain. To be clear, there are cases in which medication and surgery are the best possible course of action. However, there are also many instances in which a less invasive approach with no risk of addiction or drug interactions can create measurable improvements in low back pain.
