Whether it’s sleeping funny, overworking muscles in the gym, or sitting in the same position for too long, lower back pain is an area of concern for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. It’s always important to be conscious of any pain you’re experiencing before it leads to something worse. It’s a common area that we treat in our office at Chiropractor Dynamic, so we want to share with you a few reasons why you should see a chiropractor for lower back pain.
- Immediate relief.
Chiropractic adjustments provide relief immediately, as you can feel the adjustment happen right away. It’s important to mention that it is only a temporary immediate relief, as your muscles will need time to heal and repair after the adjustment. However, when evaluating other treatment options like medication, physical therapy, surgical operations, or just self-care, chiropractic care can be just as effective in terms of efficiency.
- Improve your range of motion.
Lower back pain can serve as a major restriction on flexibility and range of motion. It can limit your ability to bend, run, and sit straight. During your chiropractic adjustment, your bones and joints will realign. Not only will it immediately relieve some if not most of your pain, your range of motion will increase, bringing you back to your highest level of performance. We encourage you to maintain a consistent stretching routine to remain loose and agile. Keeping a close eye on your range of motion while experiencing lower back pain is critical, and serves as a good indication of needing chiropractic help.
- A great alternative to heavy medication.
A productive chiropractic treatment will incorporate safe, holistic practices including ice and heat therapy, stretching, relaxation, exercise, and patient education. We aim to keep our patients away from narcotics and surgical procedures, which could potentially have long lasting effects. Chiropractic treatment is safe and keeping patients out of the operating room and away from drugs lead to a faster recovery. It takes longer to read a list of side effects for some medications than it takes for an adjustment, and you feel better much quicker.
