#1 Cause of Lower Back Pain | Chiropractor for Low Back Pain in Lubbock, TX
Hi, my name is Dr. Greg Marin here with 1-Spine chiropractic.
Subluxations & Misalignments
Today we’re gonna be discussing the leading causes of lower back pain, specifically what initially caused the lower back pain. The number one cause of lower back pain we see in our office is a subluxation. That’s a big fancy word that tells us we have a bone that’s been misaligned. When that bone gets misaligned, that’s when you as patients notice pain. What’s happening is that bone misaligns, it puts pressure on the nerve, causing constant pain, and inflammation. Depending on what part of the nerves getting pinched, you might have some radiating pain down the leg, known as sciatica. Another thing that happens, because that bone gets misaligned, is we have limited range of motion because that joint is stuck. And with time, when we have a stuck joint, that causes wear and tear and eventually arthritis.
What We Do To Help
So whenever you have these symptoms, you want to get things checked out early, because letting this go will cause a lot of issues later on in life and, unfortunately more wear and tear than we need. So what we can do as chiropractors is we can do an adjustment. We provide specific chiropractic adjustments where we find the bone that’s misaligned and we get that bone back in place. There’s several ways to adjust that bone back in place and we will demonstrate that in a video later. but getting that bone back in place let’s that that nerve free up, so we get less pain. We also help eliminate radiating pain down the leg, restoring better range of motion, allowing your body to heal naturally without the needs of drugs, shots or surgery.
