Got Low Back Pain? Get Real Relief With Chiropractic

From tweaking your back while lifting a piece of furniture to sleeping in an awkward position to sitting for hours a day hunched over your computer, there are many causes of lumbar pain.

Our lifestyle definitely has a huge part to play. As our work and life dynamics changed, so did the nature of our physical activities. More and more people are now bound to their desks in sedentary jobs, leading to muscle weakness and tightness—the root causes of those nagging low back issues.

How Chiropractic Helps

While many people reach for OTC pain meds, roll-on relievers, or patches, they merely mask discomfort but don’t get to the root cause. Chiropractic care addresses low back pain by locating and treating subluxations—misaligned vertebrae that can interfere with nerve signals.

Through X-rays, posture analysis, and palpation, chiropractors can identify these subluxations and work on releasing the stress on the nerves, ligaments, and soft tissues. This allows the body to properly relay signals from the brain to the body so everything can work in harmony.

Beyond Pain: Influencing Other Bodily Functions

Low back pain is just the tip of the iceberg. Underlying issues can contribute to various conditions. Weak muscles due to a sedentary lifestyle cause tension in the lower back, hamstrings, and glutes. The lumbar nerves that originate from the lower back control the digestive system. Subluxations can impact digestion, metabolism, and bowel movements. They may even affect hormone levels.

Debunking Myths About Chiropractic Care

Maybe you’ve seen or heard of those TikTok videos that show people getting “cracked” or experiencing scary chiropractic adjustments. Some patients may worry about paralysis or injury from chiropractic adjustments.

It’s important to understand that chiropractic care is incredibly safe, and our chiropractors always prioritize patient safety and comfort. Using X-rays, posture analysis, and checking the range of motions enable better, personalized adjustments. In addition to manual adjustments, we also use tools like the Activator® for gentle adjustments and provide alternative treatments like decompression and percussive therapy.

Movement Is Medicine

Chronic low back pain sufferers can also find relief through lifestyle adjustments, primarily incorporating more movement into their daily lives. Promoting movement is integral to chiropractic care. Walking around the block or simply moving around for a few minutes every 45 minutes can significantly improve chronic back pain. Further, addressing muscle imbalances through targeted exercises and mobility drills accelerates recovery.

A Real-Life Success Story

For Dr. Graciela, one of the most fulfilling aspects of being a chiropractor is seeing patients reclaim their lives free from pain. One of her patients is a woman in her early 70s who had multiple low back surgeries and unsuccessful chiropractic attempts. “I told her, ‘This has been going on for a long time; let’s hold on, give me a couple of weeks, and let’s see how we do,'” said Dr. Graciela.

The patient got amazing results and started flourishing under Dr. Graciela’s care. “She started walking about three miles daily and did workouts, including burpees,” said Dr. Graciela.
