Lower back pain is one of the leading reasons most Americans seek chiropractic care. Unfortunately, most of us will experience lower back pain sometime in our lifetime. This is because the back is a complex structure comprised of the vertebrae, joints, muscles, and nerves. These parts keep us moving, turning, feeling, walking, and doing much more. If any part of this structure is damaged, it can lead to serious issues that negatively impact your daily life. If you are suffering from lower back pain, our team at Odom Chiropractic in Aiken and Grovetown is here to help. Our chiropractic care can naturally alleviate your pain or discomfort and prevent low back pain from returning.
Signs of Lower Back Pain
Back pain comes in two different forms: chronic and acute. The pain may come and go but may later progress, affecting your quality of life. You don't have to wait till you can't move or stand well. If you experience the following signs, contact us for a proper assessment:
- Muscle tightness or spasms
- Dull hip or pelvis aches
- A sharp pain that starts from your lower back down to your leg (sciatica)
- Pins and needles sensation
- Radiating pain
- Sudden leg weakness
Causes of Lower Back Pain
The most common cause of lower back pain is due to strain or a sprain. Sprains and strains can occur suddenly or develop over time. The causes of these injuries include lifting heavy objects, poor posture, sports injuries, or sudden movements. Other causes of lower back pain include:
- Herniated discs
- Degenerated discs
- Facet joint dysfunction
- Spinal stenosis
- Compression fractures
- Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
Whether your back pain results from an injury or medical condition, you can always trust a chiropractor for effective pain management.
