Chiropractic care provides benefits for the soft tissues of the back as well as the spine. Even if you are not certain about having a spinal adjustment, it can be beneficial to speak with a chiropractor when you are experiencing lower back pain. Our team at Cleveland Chiropractic and Massage provides quality chiropractic care for our patients in Garner, Cleveland, Clayton, and the 40/42 area.
Identifying Causes of Lower Back Pain
One of the most important things a chiropractor will do when you are experiencing lower back pain is getting to the root of the problem. Identifying the cause of your pain helps pinpoint the exact steps you should take to treat the problem at its source, preventing it from worsening.
Chiropractic treatment includes spinal adjustments, manual manipulation of the back, and spinal decompression. Chiropractors often use a variety of additional treatment modalities, including cold laser therapy and heat therapy. These techniques ease your pain while also targeting issues that require physical healing. Chiropractic adjustments help your body avoid putting more pressure on certain areas of your body.
Physiotherapy helps you build strength in your lower back so that your body can carry itself without pain or muscle weakness. Furthermore, therapy can improve your balance so that your body is as even as possible, putting less pressure on certain muscle groups that are prone to injury. Physiotherapy may involve exercising and stretching your lower back.
Massage therapy involves using the hands and occasionally certain tools to manipulate the body’s soft tissues. We may massage specific muscle groups in the lower back that have been injured or are experiencing significant pain. Massage improves the speed of healing by bringing more blood and oxygen to this area of the body.
Lifestyle advice and recommendations can also ease lower back pain. Your chiropractor may offer advice for managing pain with nutritional supplements, weight loss goals, or activity modifications. The chiropractor will also help you track your progress.
