Lower back pain can interfere with your daily life. And when you don’t know what’s causing your back pain, it can be hard to determine how to fix it. That’s why Dr. Michael Goldstein at Spinal Correction Chiropractic in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, works with patients with lower back pain, helping restore mobility to get them back to their normal activities as soon as possible.
Several issues can cause lower back pain. One of the most common problems occurs when the spine is misaligned. This misalignment often pinches a nerve, causing pain in the back or legs. It can also impair movement, cause severe pain, and is associated with herniated discs.
Tight muscles may also be the culprit behind lower back pain. These muscles tighten or spasm, putting extra stress on the spine and causing misalignment.
Another cause of lower back pain is sitting hunched over. With so many people spending the majority of their time in front of a computer, the spine rounds into a “C” position, causing severe pain in the lower back.
Depending on the cause of your lower back pain, Dr. Goldstein may treat you with different procedures. Some of the most common procedures include:
Dr. Goldstein may use a combination of these services to realign the spine into its natural position. By including therapeutic massage and cold laser therapy with adjustment procedures, he can promote healing throughout the body and reduce inflammation.
Finding the right treatment for your lower back pain is contingent on finding the cause of the pain. During an initial consultation, Dr. Goldstein asks you questions regarding your health history and lower back pain. He then completes a thorough examination and may even request an X-ray or MRI.
After determining the cause of your lower back pain, Dr. Goldstein creates a comprehensive treatment plan to address the issue. In this plan, he recommends a specific course of treatment that may involve one or more chiropractic services. Most likely, your plan also includes at-home exercises to strengthen your muscles and improve flexibility.
