Almost everyone is affected by back pain at least once in their lifetime, and it is one of the most common reasons people visit chiropractors. Luckily, there are measures one can take to prevent and relieve low back pain. Dr. Lambert, a chiropractor in Suffolk County, has the services and techniques to help relieve patients who experience debilitating low back pain.
Causes of Low Back Pain
Low back pain may differ between individuals. For some, the pain can be acute, lasting less than six weeks, and mild; and for others, the pain can be severe and chronic, lasting more than three months. Individuals can develop low back through a number of various causes. Conditions commonly related to low back pain include:
- Muscle strain and ligament sprain- One of the most common causes of low back pain is a pulled muscle or ligament. Low back pain can appear suddenly or develop over time following a muscle strain or ligament sprain.
- Bulging or herniated discs- This occurs when the soft center of the lumbar disc protrudes through the tough outer layer and causes nerve irritation.
- Osteoarthritis-Arthritis in the spine can narrow the space around the spinal cord, which can put an immense amount of pressure on the lower back.
What is Spinal Manipulation Therapy?
Through the process of spinal manipulation therapy, our chiropractor in Suffolk County can help alleviate the pain by applying manual manipulation to the vertebrae that are misaligned. These misalignments cause vertebrae to function abnormally, therefore, causing pain to occur. The goal of spinal manipulation therapy is to increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritation, and improve function.
When the controlled force is applied to a joint of the spine, it allows oxygen to properly flow through the spine which releases joint pressure. The amount of force depends on the severity of the condition being treated.
