Low Back Pain Treatments

Millions of people around the world suffer from low back pain, but you don’t have to be one of them. Dr. Dan Monson at Able-Monson Chiropractic in West Valley City, UT, offers personalized care to help you find natural relief.

Understanding Lower Back Pain and How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Lower back pain is more than just a nuisance. It can make life completely miserable. It can create uncomfortable and sometimes excruciating symptoms when you move, sit, sleep, bend, or do anything else you might need to do each day.

Though many people suffer through it or rely on pain medication to get through their day, there is a safer and more natural method for achieving relief. Dr. Monson and the team at Able-Monson Chiropractic of West Valley City, UT, share how chiropractic care can provide the low back pain relief you’re desperately seeking below.

Basics of Lower Back Pain

The lower back consists of five lumbar vertebrae, along with discs, the lower part of the spinal cord, nerves, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. The longest nerve in the body, the sciatic nerve, originates in the lower back, as well. This is significant, as it travels down through the legs and feet.

Throughout the day, the lower back components support your life, whether you are at work or resting at home. When you’re not practicing good posture, proper lifting techniques, or other spinal care necessities, these activities can lead to issues such as:

  • Misalignment
  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle tension
  • Nerve compression, including sciatica
  • Sprains and strains

Such issues can lead to everything from aches or sharp pains in the lower back to numbness, tingling, and weakness in the legs and feet.

Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain

A chiropractor will begin by determining what is causing the pain and other symptoms in your lower back. Discovering the underlying issue allows treatment to be directed toward the source. Dr. Monson will combine techniques that address the root cause, as well as any resulting damage and daily lifestyle factors that contribute to your pain. The following are a few examples of techniques used.

  • Adjustments to restore proper alignment to the vertebrae, relieving pressure on surrounding components
  • Electrical stimulation therapy to relieve muscle spasms and tension, as well as improve blood flow and range of motion
  • Therapeutic ultrasound to penetrate deep tissues to break up tension, trigger points, and other problem areas
  • Therapeutic exercise to stretch and strengthen your core muscles
  • Recommendations for changes you can make to daily habits
