Back pain, especially low back pain, is one of the most frequent problems seen in our practice. There are a lot of potential causes of low back pain- pulled muscle or inflamed joined due to a sudden movement,spinal degeneration and arthropathies, disc bulge or asciatic. Rarely, there may be a more serious cause. More and more often back pain is related to a sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercises and obesity.
The effectiveness of low back pain treatment depends primarily on the correct diagnosis. This is why in our clinic we emphasize the importance of understanding the cause of the problem, as only then chiropractic treatment is safe and effective.
Discopathy realates to a disease process of an intervertebral disc in the spine. It is a stage of a degenerative process, which may be influenecd by trophic changes, inuries from the past, mechanical stress or geneti factors.
Symptoms of discopathy are:
- pain in lower back which may radiate to a leg or hip
- stiffness and limited movement
- if there is a disc bulge, symptoms may also include numbness, pins and needles, muscle weakness
How can chiropractic help you?
Effectiveness of low back pain and discopathy treatment depends on correct diagnosis. In our office we always make sure that you understand the cause of your pain. Chiropractic treatment is based on spinal adjustments (aka. spinal manipulative therapy) which correct misalignments in the spinal joints, improving the nervous system function. Most patients feel better after only a few treatment sessions. In our office we provide not only natural and medication-free pain treatment, but also show you ways how to prevent the problem from coming back in the future.
