Causes of Lower Back Pain
The most common causes of lower back discomfort include sciatica, a misaligned spine, and sore muscles.
Sciatica can cause severe lower back discomfort. Usually, this pain is caused by a misaligned spine, placing pressure on the sciatic nerve. Thankfully, this issue is relatively easy for our chiropractor to treat.
If your spine is out of alignment, this can cause discomfort (even if your sciatic nerve is not irritated). It is relatively common for the lower spine to move out of alignment. This misalignment can cause pain in both the spine and the surrounding tissues.
Sore muscles can also cause lower back discomfort. Our chiropractor can still treat this issue even if the spine is not involved.
Treatments We Provide
Dr. Langel's treatments include exercise therapy, trigger point therapy, and chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Langel is an expert in spinal adjustments. He stays up to date on the latest advances in chiropractic care. This updated information means he can effectively treat lower back discomfort caused by sciatica or a misaligned spine with spinal adjustments.
Dr. Langel often recommends exercise therapy and trigger point therapy for back discomfort caused by muscular issues. Exercise therapy involves stretches and simple exercises that can strengthen muscles and connective tissue. Trigger point therapy involves applying pressure to points in the lower back to relax the muscles.
