What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain has a wide range of causes, some of which are as simple as twisting wrong or spraining your lower back muscles. However, there are other causes of lower back pain that are more serious. These include:

  • Spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal that leads to the compression of nerves and pain in the lower back.
  • Herniated discs, which is where the discs in between the vertebrae burst and leak fluid.
  • Bulging discs, which is where the discs in between the vertebrae suddenly slip out of place.
  • Sciatica, which is a compression of the sciatic nerve that leads to shooting pain, numbness, and tingling in the lower extremities.

How Does a Chiropractor Help My Lower Back Pain?

Your chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam to determine which of the above-listed causes are causing your lower back pain. There are also several chiropractic care techniques that your chiropractor can use to treat your lower back pain, including chiropractic adjustments to help realign the spine, ultrasound and/or electrical stimulation (interferential therapy) of the lower back area, or low level laser therapy (photobiomodulation).

Spinal decompression is another specialized type of treatment that can help gently stretch out the spine and alleviate lower back pain.
