When Should I See a Chiropractor for Lower Back Pain?

| Return

According to the American Chiropractic Association, 80% of people will experience back problems during their lifetime. Unfortunately, many of these same people will choose not to seek treatment for their pain. Ignoring back pain is rarely a good idea, though.

 

Major signs you should seek chiropractic treatment

Persistent Back Pain

If you've been experiencing lower back pain for a week or more and home treatments, like heating pads, aren't making things better, it's a good idea to schedule an appointment with your chiropractor. Pain is a sign that something is going wrong in the body—so persistent pain is an indicator that whatever is going wrong isn't resolving itself.

Pain That Extends Beyond The Back

If your pain is so severe that it extends down from the lower back into one or both legs, this is a potential sign of serious spinal damage. Specifically, it can indicate the presence of a damaged disc. This can occur because of an injury or may occur naturally with aging, but either way, it's a problem that requires treatment.

Pain After an Accident

If you've recently been involved in a car accident or other injury-causing event and are now experiencing lower back pain, it's a good idea to check in with a chiropractor. The injuries sustained from accidents are often very rough and abrupt and can lead to significant structural damage to the spine.

 

How Chiropractors Can Help

Luckily, there are chiropractic treatment options available, no matter the cause of your lower back pain. One of the most common treatments performed is chiropractic adjustment, which involves the physical manipulation of the spine by hand. Additionally, chiropractic biophysics is another option that works well for many types of back pain. Finally, non-surgical spinal decompression is a good choice for patients experiencing lower back pain because of disc-related problems.
