Back pain is diagnosed by a thorough examination conducted by a doctor of chiropractic. We use spinal palpation, orthopedic test, neurologic examinations and or x-ray to determine the cause of your pain.
One of the things that we find with acute lower back pain is that there is often an accident and or trauma that has happened recently. Either lifting something wrong working out too heavy. Or playing too rough. These things can cause your back to go out
As opposed to acute lower back pain, chronic low back pain is typically caused by repetitive stress injury. We now know that sitting is the new smoking. The more sanitary your work life, the more at risk you are for not only cardiovascular disease but increased degeneration to your lower back.
It all comes down to removing the subluxation. That bone is out of place putting pressure on nerves not allowing proper communication to the body area involved. Once you open up that channel of communication the body is able to function like it was created to do in the first place.
If you’re hurting, a chiropractor is your first stop to examine what’s going on. Obviously, if it is an emergency please go to the emergency room to make sure there’s nothing life-threatening.
