Lower back pain is common, ranging from mild discomfort to severe, debilitating pain. This pain is caused by various factors, including muscle strain, injury, poor posture, or underlying medical conditions. If you're experiencing lower back pain, it can be tough to figure out how to feel better. Taking over-the-counter medications and using at-home remedies can help, but lower back pain can be tough to beat without the help of a holistic healthcare provider. Our team at Family Wellness Center in Myrtle Beach, SC, will work with you to find the pain relief you need.
What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can have various causes, from muscle strain to more complex underlying medical conditions. Identifying the specific cause of lower back pain is essential for effective treatment. Sciatica, which runs from the bottom of the spine through the hips and legs, can cause lower back pain. Acute injuries can cause lower back pain, as can staying in the same position for much of the day. Many pregnant women experience lower back pain at some point during pregnancy.
Lower Back Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care can be an excellent way to treat lower back pain and get lasting relief. When you visit our office for a consultation, we'll discuss your health history and ask questions about your lower back pain. If you decide that chiropractic treatment is a good fit for your needs, you may have your adjustment on the same day.
In addition to standard chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor may recommend other treatments to help your lower back heal. Our treatment plan may include spinal decompression, strengthening and stretching exercises, and lifestyle changes. Over time, we'll revisit your treatment plan to ensure you continue to progress toward less pain.
