Lower back pain is incredibly prevalent, affecting the lives of over 30 million Americans. Fortunately, there is hope. There are medical professionals who dedicate their practice to treating lower back pain and can help patients get to the root of the problem.

Congenital conditions, such as:
-Scoliosis (a curvature of the spine)
-Lordosis (excessive inward arch of the spine)
-Kyphosis (excessive outward arch of the spine)

What are the symptoms of lower back problems?


The symptoms of low back pain may include:

-Sharp pain in the lower back
-Dull ache in the lower back
-Stiffness of the lower back
-Tingling or numbness of the leg(s)
-Tingling or pain in a buttock
-Pain in the hip
-Muscle spasms in the back
-Seizing up of the back muscles

In some cases, back pain is more prevalent on one side of the spine than it is on the other.

How is lower back pain treated?


The treatment of lower back pain is primarily focused on relieving pain and resolving symptoms. One of the most common treatments for lower back pain is rehabilitative therapy or physiotherapy. Gentle stretches and exercises are much more effective at relieving back pain than avoiding activity altogether. In fact, bed rest is known to exacerbate symptoms of lower back pain, causing more pain and further limiting the range of motion. We use different methods according to your individual problem, which include Chiropractic care for back pain, Biofeedback therapy, Muscle relaxants, Capsaicin, Opiates, and many others.

When should I see a doctor if I have lower back pain?


It may be recommended to visit a back pain specialist if:

-Back pain does not go away after two weeks of at-home care
-There is shooting pain down the arms or legs
-There is weakness, numbness, or tingling in the arms and legs
-There is pain at night, especially when it interferes with sleeping
-Back pain is accompanied by a fever or weight loss
-There are problems with balance or incontinence

Anyone can experience lower back pain, although certain factors increase the risk for lower back pain, including:

-People over the age of 40
-Having a low fitness level
-Being overweight or obese
-Having a family history of back pain
-Working at a job that requires heavy lifting, pushing, or pulling
-Smoking, as it can restrict blood flow and oxygen
-Wearing a heavy backpack
