Lower Back Pain Treatment from Our Chiropractor in St. Paul
The majority of adults in the United States experience lower back pain at some time in their lives. Chiropractic treatments provided by our doctors at Allie Chiropractic in St. Paul help many of our patients seeking relief from their low back pain.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Common causes of lower back pain vary from one individual to another, with some causes related to lifestyle and habits. One cause of low back pain is poor posture. Do you lean over your computer? Do your work-related duties require repetitive tasks such as bending, twisting or lifting? These career tasks sometimes cause lower back pain. Inform our St. Paul chiropractor of possible career-related causes of your low back pain.
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) reveals that low back pain is the leading cause of disability throughout the world. The ACA also explains that sprained or strained ligaments, muscles, tendons, and irritation to joints are some common factors leading to lower back pain, which potentially occur with simple movements. Injuries often cause low back pain, including sports injuries, accidents at home and motor vehicle accidents. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) indicates that sprains and strains often lead to incidents of acute back pain.
Traumatic injuries often lead to potentially serious low back pain symptoms possibly because of ruptured or herniated discs, compression of the spine, irritated or compressed nerve roots.
Typical Symptoms of Lower Back Pain
Symptoms of low back pain vary. If you experienced a traumatic injury, your back pain symptoms potentially differ from those of an individual with sciatica, spinal stenosis or fibromyalgia. If you experience sharp, burning low back pain, chronic pressure, dull aching or numbness in your lower back, our chiropractors offer treatments that provide drug-free relief of low back pain.
