Back pain is an extremely common condition. Nearly 80% of American adults will have a run-in with lower back pain at some point throughout their lives. In addition, back pain is the number one complaint filed in worker’s compensation claims. Without proper treatment, back pain can evolve into a chronic condition accompanied by a lifetime of discomfort. With our professional chiropractic treatments at Preferred Medical and Rehab in Anchorage, AK, you can treat the underlying source of your lower back pain and ensure the longevity of your physical health. 

The Causes of Low Back Pain

Lower back pain can be a symptom of many different conditions. One of the most common sources of lower back pain is a herniated (or bulging) disc. A vertebrae becomes herniated when excessive pressure is applied, causing the disc to bulge. The protruding disc then presses down on the sensitive nerve endings surrounding the spine, causing pain to spread throughout the lower back. 

Other causes of back pain can include vertebral subluxations (the technical term for misalignments of the spine), poor or hunched posture, scoliosis, and even prolonged periods of sitting due to sedentary desk jobs or general lack of physical activity. If you are experiencing unexplained lower back pain, your doctor can conduct an evaluation and help you identify the source of your discomfort. 

How Chiropractic Treatments Can Help

Chiropractors are uniquely qualified to diagnose and successfully treat and manage lower back conditions, as the majority of their training focuses on the intricacies of the spine. No matter what the cause of your lower back pain, chiropractic can help correct spinal misalignments and decrease pressure on your discs. 

Unlike traditional solutions for lower back pain, which can involve risky surgeries and laundry lists of prescription medications, chiropractic sessions are completely non-invasive and typically do not require a recovery period. Chiropractic addresses the underlying source of your pain, promoting a holistic approach to treatment that puts you on the path to long-term healing.
