What Commonly Causes Low Back Pain?
The most common causes of low back pain are related to poor posture and loss of mobility and strength of the lumbar spine. This can lead to muscle spasms, inflammation, and nerve pain. The longer this continues, the more damage it can cause over time, and the more difficult low back pain can be to treat.
Lifting heavy objects or using improper lifting techniques can cause bulging discs or disc herniations. These lifting-related injuries can result in numbness, tingling, or pain that radiates down the leg. Early detection and treatment of lifting-related low back pain are vital to the healing process.
Accidents & Falls
Sudden movements that stress the muscles and ligaments of the lumbar spine, like car accidents or falls, can sprain or strain your lower back. This can result in severe pain and lead to more chronic problems when not treated quickly and correctly through professional chiropractic care.
How Low Back Pain Impacts Your Life
Missing Out on Activities You Enjoy
Low back pain can make the activities you enjoy and spending time with the people you love a painful experience. Rather than enjoying a stroll through the park, going to your nephew’s baseball game, or enjoying an afternoon out with friends, all you can think about is how much it would hurt your back, so you don’t go.
Don’t let low back pain rob you of life’s joys. Seeing our patients get back to the activities they enjoy is one of the main reasons why we are laser-focused on alleviating pain quickly and efficiently.
Being Unable to Work
The effects of low back pain can cause performance issues at work and severe pain could be keeping you from working altogether. This affects your entire life, your mood, your freedom, and it can even impact your relationships. Proper care for your low back pain is the best option to get you back on track to optimal health.
Sleep Problems & Long-Term Stress
Suffering from low back pain can make it impossible to get comfortable in bed. Even if you are able to fall asleep, you might often wake up in pain, and low quality sleep can negatively impact your energy level.
Poor sleep from low back pain also places additional stress on your body, which leads to longer healing times, making it important that you seek care as soon as possible to prevent long-term consequences on your body.

Electric Muscle Stimulation
We often combine Electric Muscle Stimulation with Spinal Manipulation to aid in decreasing muscle spasms, reduce inflammation, and release endorphins into the blood stream to help eliminate pain quickly and efficiently.
