Lower Back Pain San Diego Mission Valley Clinic | As a San Diego Chiropractor, I am in contact with people suffering from severe lower back pain on a regular basis. Severe low back pain requires a specific diagnosis before lower back pain treatment can begin.
Once a diagnosis is made, treatments for severe back pain can begin which almost always include adjustments from the chiropractor as well as various in office therapies that help reduce inflammation and muscle spasms. In most cases, treatment includes at home therapies such as icing, stretching and exercises.
Lower back pain relief comes with consistency and frequency of both in-office and at home therapies. treatment for lower back pain varies from person to person and is dependent on their age, type of injury, location of the injury, their personal injury history and the severity of the injury.
In most cases, lumbar vertebra pains affect your ability to perform even basic activities and can often interfere with your ability to work, study or exercise. The rule of thumb regarding chiropractic therapy is that the earlier treatment for lower back pain begins the faster recovery will be.
Your Severe Lower Back Pain San Diego
Chiropractor’s Primary Objective
In many cases of severe lower back pain, sciatica pain relief becomes a primary objective. In instances of severe low back pain there is often enough irritation and swelling in the joints to produce sciatic pain.
Sciatica is extremely uncomfortable and is a close relative of herniated disc pain. Sciatic nerve pain treatments require a gentle touch and often include adjustments from the chiropractor as well as at home therapies. Typical symptoms of sciatica include buttocks pain, leg pain, knee pain, calf pain and leg weakness.
Another Condition That Can Cause Severe Lower Back Pain
Spinal Stenosis is another lower back condition that causes lower back pain. Spinal Stenosis describes a condition in which the nerve root and neural canal openings are getting smaller resulting in a pinching of the nerve. In many cases, patients do get relief for Spinal Stenosis with chiropractic treatment. Relief for Spinal Stenosis is dependent on a number of variables including the severity of the stenosis and if there are any other factors that are contributing to the pinched nerves.
Of course I do treat either condition, Sciatica or Spinal Stenosis causing Severe Lower Back Pain San Diego Residents can suffer from, who choose to opt for treatment.
