Guide to Chiropractic Care and Low Back Pain

Lower back pain has become so common that many people just learn to deal with it. It’s easy to think that it’s just a part of life, and you should learn to accept it.

It’s important to understand, though, that while it might be common, that doesn’t make it normal. In fact, pain is the body’s way of telling us that something isn’t right. And if you’re experiencing lower back pain, it’s time to seek the help of a chiropractor like Dr. Dinsmore at Dinsmore Chiropractic Clinic in Ontario, OR. Let’s take a look at why below.

What Exactly Does Lower Back Pain Mean?

Lower back pain is a sign that something is amiss – typically within the musculoskeletal system – such as:

  • A herniated disc
  • A spinal misalignment
  • Nerve compression
  • Muscular strain

These are just a few of the most common examples. How could you have developed one of these issues? The truth is that pain and injuries are personalized to the person feeling it, so there is no one root cause. Many people develop these issues through situations similar to the following:

  • Sitting at a desk for prolonged periods
  • Repeatedly bending, lifting, and twisting at work
  • Being involved in a car accident
  • Working out too often, with too much weight, or with improper techniques
  • Playing a game of backyard football with buddies
  • Being pregnant or overweight, as these put undue strain on the spine

And some people experience lower back pain or injuries due to issues in the lower body. For example, a lack of proper support for your feet can lead to lower back issues, as can issues within the foot structure.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractors focus on treating both the current symptoms as well as the root cause. Treatment begins with a full understanding of what you’re experiencing and where the root issue lies. Once located, a personalized plan is created to help you enjoy relief now and prevent pain in the future.

Each chiropractor provides similar yet varying techniques. When visiting Dr. Dinsmore, your treatment plan can include a combination of the following and more, depending on your needs:

  • Gentle adjustments of the spine and extremities
  • Traction
  • Hydromassage
  • Massage therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Custom orthotics
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Spinal decompression
