Lower Back Pain from our Harrisburg Chiropractor

Lower back pain is a problem that can affect adults of all ages. At Skocik Chiropractic, we help patients manage their lower back pain. Using all natural, gentle chiropractic treatments, we help patients heal from injuries and avoid further injury. With techniques like spinal adjustment, stretches and exercises and lifestyle advice, we help improve our patient's quality of life. 

Lower Back Pain

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

Many people experience lower back pain for a variety of reasons, including:  

  • Injury. Personal injuries, sports injuries and car accident injuries can all lead to lower back pain. Injury to the lower back can lead to chronic pain if the problem isn't treated properly in its early stages. 
  • Posture. Poor posture puts pressure on the spinal column, causing pain up and down the back. 
  • Career. Un-ergonomic conditions at work can cause injury and damage to the back, leading to lower back pain. 

Lower Back Pain Diagnosis and Symptoms

The symptoms of lower back pain may vary depending on the cause of the injury. For a patient who is suffering from a herniated disc, the lower back pain may be accompanied by tingling and numbness in the lower extremities. For a patient suffering from ergonomic trouble, the back pain may take on a constant ache. The characteristics of the pain can help chiropractors diagnose the condition. 

Chiropractic Evaluation and Treatment of Lower Back Pain

If you experience lower back pain, we can diagnose your condition to help you get the treatment you need. At your first appointment, we'll start with a consultation to determine whether or not lifestyle factors are contributing to your pain. Next, we'll perform a full physical. We'll check your back for subluxations and injuries. Once we've found the source of your pain, we'll use the following techniques to help treat your condition:

  • Spinal adjustment. Also known as spinal manipulation, this technique may be done by hand or with tools. When we perform a spinal adjustment, we realign the vertebrae and reduce pressure on the joints to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. 
  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy is a technique we use to improve blood flow and help patients heal from back injuries. Massage therapy also helps loosen the muscles, which can help people who suffer from back pain as the result of stress. 
  • Stretches and exercises. We recommend stretches and exercises to help improve mobility and improve patient strength.
