      Chiropractic Treatment Options for Your Lower Back Pain

      Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain

      About 80% of Americans should expect to experience at least one episode of back pain in their lives according to numerous studies available through the US National Library of Medicine. Unfortunately, for many individuals, back pain becomes a frequent or chronic issue that can have debilitating effects on life.

      The multispecialty team at Synergy Medical, LLC offers outstanding, comprehensive, and personalized care for residents in and around Marysville, Ohio. These talented specialists break down the facts about lower back pain and how chiropractic adjustments can help.

      Understanding the causes of low back pain

      Your spine is a complex structure of bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, and other tissue structures that are intricately connected and rely on proper alignment to carry you through your day. Even mild abnormalities can irritate nerves, strain muscles, and cause pain.

      Weak abdominal muscles, for instance, can cause an unnatural curve in your lower spine that stresses tendons and ligaments in your lower (lumbar) back. Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) can compress and irritate the large sciatic nerves that run down the backs of your legs, leading to sciatica.

      Other causes of spinal misalignment and subsequent low back pain include:

      • Structural issues such as degenerative disc disease
      • Joint dysfunction
      • Arthritis
      • Chronically poor posture when sitting, standing, or lying down
      • Compression fracture related to osteoporosis
      • Improper lifting techniques
      • Injury sustained during a fall or other trauma

      The team at Synergy Medical takes a holistic approach to your back pain, which may include chiropractic care to help restore proper alignment to your spine.
