Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide. At some point in their lives, most people will experience this debilitating pain. Kratz Chiropractic in Cumming offers treatment for lower back pain. When you need a chiropractor near you, we are here to provide the lower back pain relief that you need.


Symptoms of Back Pain

The most obvious symptom, of course, is pain. Your chiropractor will discuss your medical history and also have you point out the location of your pain and describe it. Is it dull, aching, or sharp and shooting? Does it burn? Is it located in one area or does it radiate down your leg? All these details will help your chiropractor identify the root cause of your pain. In addition to pain, there may be numbness, tingling, and reduced range of motion.

Causes of Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can result from wear and tear caused by aging or repetitive motion. It may be caused by arthritis or stenosis in the spine. An accident can lead to chronic lower back pain. Lifting heavy objects or lifting incorrectly can also be a cause. Poor posture and prolonged sitting with inadequate movement can result in lower back pain.

Treatments for Lower Back Pain

The required treatment will depend on the source of the pain, whether it originates in the muscles and soft tissue or in the bones and discs. However, with chiropractic care, the treatment will be noninvasive and drug-free.

The spinal adjustment is the primary treatment provided. In some cases, simply realigning the spine can provide pain relief. Your chiropractor may also use an Automatic Flexion Distraction Table, which helps stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the nerves caused by a herniated disc.

If the cause of the lower back pain is muscular, electrical stimulation therapy may help. Lower levels of electricity are applied to the muscles, causing them to contract. After a few minutes of contraction, they tire and relax, which can lead to a reduction in pain.
