A chiropractic care center like Mouroux Chiropractic offers expert care and natural remedies for lower back pain.

Symptoms of Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain doesn’t just cause pain and discomfort. Sometimes, the pain is accompanied by visible redness on the site where you’re experiencing pain. You might also have inflammation that could cause swelling that can be seen on the outside of the body. If your back pain is caused by a nerve issue, it’s possible you’ll have tingling or numbness that radiates from the lower back, down the legs and even to the toes. The tingling and numbness tend to only affect one leg,

Causes of Lower Back Pain

Your back has joints, ligaments and muscles that you can sprain, strain, overwork or injure in another way. It’s even possible to experience issues with the discs in the back. Injuries can contribute to pain in the lower back and so can just moving the back in a wrong way or repeatedly performing the same movement that places stress on the back. Obesity, poor posture, osteomyelitis, osteoporosis or arthritis can contribute to lower back pain. Other possible causes include pregnancy, sciatica, scoliosis or spinal stenosis.

Ankylosing spondylitis, which is an inflammatory condition that affects the discs in the spine, may be the cause of your pain and discomfort. A herniated disc arises as a result of a tear in a spinal disc. This tear may allow the contents of the disc to flow into the spinal column, which can irritate the nerves and soft tissue in the general vicinity. Your back pain could be caused by a bulging disc, a term used to describe weakening of the outer shell of the disc.

Treatment for Lower Back Pain

Our San Jose chiropractic doctor may perform a spinal alignment to reduce your lower back pain. An alignment, also referred to as an adjustment, consists of our chiropractor physically manipulating the spine in order to take pressure off the nearby soft tissue and nerves. The alignment also has the potential to increase circulation throughout the back, which allows it to heal more optimally due to the increase in the flow of nutrients. It helps relieve neck pain as well.

Another treatment we utilize for back pain is spinal decompression, a treatment that uses a motorized traction device to stretch the spine. Spinal decompression reduces stress on the discs in between the vertebrae. Some patients can find relief from their back pain with a chiropractic massage, which is comprised of a therapist targeting the deep tissue to loosen it, reduce swelling and relieve pain.
