Understanding Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints that people have. In fact, it seems to be something that many come to accept as part of life, but you don’t have to let lower back pain be a nuisance in your day-to-day life. There are many non-invasive, natural options for dealing with the pain, and chiropractic treatment is one of the best.

Fortunately, residents of Glen Carbon and Edwardsville don’t have to look far to find professional chiropractic services. Infinite Wellness Integrative Medical Center and Dr. Ryan Cleland are here to help you get back to living a comfortable and healthy free!

What Causes Lower Back Pain?

The reason that countless people experience lower back pain at some point in their life is that there are many things that can lead to discomfort. However, most lower back pain complaints stem from an accident or injury that led to a strained muscle or sprained ligament. At Infinite Wellness, we also see a wide variety of additional causes, which include:

  • Poor Work Ergonomics
  • Bad Posture
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Kidney Stones
  • Infections
  • Congenital Defects
  • And More!

Lower Back Pain Explained

The majority of lower back pain is mechanical in nature, which means that there is stress or pressure on the bones, discs, or nerves in the spine. It can also be chemical pain. This is the body’s chemical response to injury, and it usually looks like an inflammatory response.

When we look at lower back pain, we have to look at the specific problem area. The lower back region is known as the lumbar spine, and it is comprised of five vertebrae that help protect this portion of the spine. These vertebrae are each separated by discs, which act as shock absorbers. These intervertebral discs provide critical cushion to the bones in the spine, and they are key to evenly distributing weight.

In between each of the vertebrae, you’ll find foramen, which are holes that let nerves travel throughout the body to muscles and organs. Anytime there is a misalignment in this delicate part of the body, it can lead to nerve problems and pain.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

A chiropractor can help with both mechanical and chemical pain. Our highly trained chiropractic team can use their knowledge and techniques to make sure your lumbar spine is properly aligned and transmitting nerve signals as it should be. In fact, the following are just a few of the ways that we can help remedy any of your lower back pain struggles.

Lifestyle & Ergonomics Assessment

We take a deeper look at the root of the problem by talking about your lifestyle and day-to-day ergonomics. For example, this might include looking at the support of your office chair and how we can improve it. It could also mean that we need to suggest a different mattress or pillow for more support while you sleep.

Custom Plan to Optimize Strength & Flexibility

Based on our assessment, we can help determine a care plan that will not only rid you of your current back pain struggles but will also prevent future issues. Your strength and flexibility plan will be completely custom to your particular needs and lifestyle, so you can get the best results for your body.

Correct Misalignments

No matter what the cause of the misalignment is, you can count on our chiropractic professionals to carefully adjust you. Once we get all of the discs and your spine back in alignment, you can start to heal and have less nerve pain.

Regular Adjustments to Help Align the Spine

Even after we’ve adjusted you once, we can set up future appointments to serve as preventative care. Continuing to see a chiropractor can ensure that the back pain doesn’t return in the future.
