Man in office with low back pain

If you are dealing with acute or chronic low back pain, consider meeting with our trusted chiropractor in Harrisburg here at Skocik Chiropractic. He and his team provide quality care in a friendly environment, promoting wellness and healing in body and mind. 

Potential Causes of Your Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is something the vast majority of us will deal with at least once in our lifetime. You may not always know for sure what's causing it, but in our experience, the following issues or factors are usually one of the culprits:

  • Psychological stress
  • Physically demanding jobs which require a lot of heavy lifting
  • Alternatively, excessively sedentary jobs that require a lot of sitting at a desk
  • Poor workspace ergonomics and body mechanics
  • Trauma, including auto accidents and sports injuries
  • "Wear and tear" associated with growing older (low back pain is particularly common among 30-50 year olds)

Certain factors may also increase your risk of low back pain, including smoking, being overweight or obese, and even having a prior episode. Specific conditions which often result in back pain include arthritis, muscle strain or spasm, disc herniation or bulge, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, and fibromyalgia.

Symptoms & Issues Associated with Low Back Pain

People who experience low back pain often report the following signs and symptoms:

  • Pain that is sore, achy, dull, or tender
  • Occasional sharp and shooting pain
  • Symptoms in the leg (if nerve impingement is involved): numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain
  • Decreased spinal mobility and muscle shortness (especially in the hamstrings)

These symptoms may be worse first thing in the morning or with certain movements, or even after sitting for too long. 

How Our Harrisburg Chiropractor Diagnoses & Treats Low Back Pain

Lower back pain treatment requires resolution of both symptoms and underlying causes. Our Harrisburg chiropractor will provide thorough diagnostic and therapeutic services, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression, to restore normal joint movement and alignment in the spine and relieve pressure on any compressed spinal nerves
  • Massage therapy to relax muscles and increase circulation
  • Laser therapy to relieve pain
  • Nutritional services to promote cellular repair and healing
