Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can result from various factors, including:

  • Poor Posture: Sitting or standing with incorrect posture puts strain on the lower back muscles and spine.
  • Lack of Exercise: Weak muscles and poor flexibility can lead to back problems.
  • Injury: Accidents or improper lifting techniques can cause acute or chronic lower back pain.

Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Health

Chiropractic care is an effective way to maintain lower back health. Our chiropractors use specific techniques to address misalignments and provide relief from pain. Some benefits of chiropractic care for the lower back include:

Pain Relief: Spinal adjustments reduce nerve interference, alleviating pain and discomfort.

Improved Function: Correcting misalignments restores proper function to the spine and surrounding muscles.

Enhanced Mobility: Chiropractic care increases flexibility and range of motion, preventing further injuries.

Tips for Lower Back Maintenance

In addition to chiropractic care, consider these tips to maintain a healthy lower back:

  • Exercise Regularly: Strengthen your core muscles with exercises like planks and bridges.
  • Maintain Good Posture: Be mindful of your posture, whether sitting, standing, or lifting.
  • Stay Active: Avoid prolonged periods of inactivity. Take breaks to stretch and move around.
  • Use Proper Techniques: When lifting heavy objects, use your legs, not your back.
