Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain Relief

The pharmaceutical world seems to be introducing new back pain medication every day to help with the 65 million Americans that deal with recurrent back pain. While medication may be effective, it can be addictive, expensive, and have numerous unwanted side effects.

The relief that you get from lower back pain medication is short-lived. If you have chronic lower lumbar complications, it often means that you will live your entire life depending on pills to ease the pain. This causes a high risk of addiction, not to mention the potentially harmful side effects of pharmacological medications have on other parts of your body, internally or externally.

In-depth Diagnosis of Lower Back Pain

You can expect a thorough examination by Dr. Taylor when you schedule an appointment for our chiropractic care. First, our staff will establish your medical history. We will ask you about the type of pain you are experiencing, when it started, and how your daily life has been impacted. We may also want to know about your family’s medical history or any previous injuries.

This initial discussion helps our chiropractor, Dr. Taylor, decide which techniques will provide the quickest lower back pain relief. This information also provides foresight on possible complications to watch out for when you are undergoing treatment.

A chiropractic exam follows the initial consultation. The exam includes an assessment of your reflexes, range of motion, blood pressure, muscle strength, and other factors our doctor sees fit for your case. In cases where further tests are needed, the doctor might order an x-ray, MRI, or lab tests.

Before recommending a treatment plan, you can expect that we will have a full understanding of your condition. We will choose a chiropractic treatment option that is personalized to your unique health needs.

Extensive Chiropractic Techniques for Your Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain has many causes. A single chiropractic technique may not sufficiently address all these causes. At our chiropractic office in Chicago, we have established several evidence-based chiropractic treatments for handling most causes and complications from lower back pain.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression helps to rectify herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. A herniated disc is a disc nucleus that has been pushed out of place into the spinal canal causing it to press against your nerves, which then causes moderate to extreme pain.

Sciatica, on the other hand, arises when the vertebrae in the lower back are out of place and press against the sciatic nerve causing intense pain in the lower lumbar region and possibly down your leg.

Our spinal decompression technique uses gentle and computer-aided stretching to bring your spinal vertebrae back in place and take the pressure off your nerves. This treatment has an 86% success rate against lower back pain because it attains negative pressure that helps herniated and ruptured disks to retract.

We use the latest for this treatment. Spinal decompression therapy for lower back pain relief is safe and often painless. You can expect quick and long-lasting pain relief with this therapy compared to what someone might get with surgery or medication.

Manual Spinal Manipulation

Every lower back pain patient responds differently to different treatment techniques. Your lower back problem could be a mild or chronic case.  In that case, we carry out an in-depth diagnosis before we decide the right treatment approach for you. Manual spinal manipulation is among our many chiropractic therapy options to help treat back pain.

Spinal manipulation provided by our expert chiropractor will help to rectify the alignment of your dislocated spinal disks and relieve pressure from your nerves, your joints, and muscles. The technique involves the use of gentle or rapid controlled force in the lower lumbar region.

Several studies have shown that spinal manipulation is an effective remedy against lower back pain, especially chronic cases that last for more than four weeks. We only recommend the treatment after assessing your past medical history and ascertaining that you do not have an unstable spine, spinal cancer, or are at a high risk for stroke.

Massage Therapy

Even though lower back pain has many causes, they all lead to discomfort and pain. Our spinal manipulation and decompression techniques aim to heal the root cause of your lower back condition. We also provide further options that will help you with the pain and accelerate faster healing.

The tissue massage stimulates increased circulation in the affected areas. As a result, more nutrients get supplied to your sore and painful back muscles, helping to relieve inflammation and speed up recovery.

Do remember that stiff muscles are also a risk factor for lower back pain. Stiff muscles often worsen cases of spinal stenosis, sciatica, or herniated disc. Our massage therapy for lower back pain in Chicago achieves muscle relaxation, improves range of motion, reduces pain and inflammation.

Getting a deep tissue massage for lower back pain relief is also a good idea because your ‘feel-good’ hormones are unleashed in the process. This is a happy cocktail of hormones that will ease your mind and help you feel more at peace. Wellness on a psychological level has, in many cases, been found to speed up healing on a physical level.
