Likely Causes of Lower Back Pain Other Than a Car Accident
The most common causes of lower back pain range across many reasons. This could be sitting at work, straining the muscles due to heavy and improper lifting, bulging disks or pinched nerves. Thankfully, a chiropractor can help these conditions. In other instances, the low back pain may be referred from other organs in the body such as the prostate, uterus or colon. Or, it may be from a car accident, in which a chiropractor can help. Chiropractors are trained to recognize a difference and refer out when it is a condition they cannot treat.
Consequences of Lower Back Pain Being Left Untreated
Untreated lower back pain can result in advancing, degenerative arthritis which can sometimes result in disc herniation and leg pain. Other less painful but still uncomfortable conditions are loss of motion when bending and tight muscles. You should see a chiropractor if you have pain, no matter the cause is from a car accident or pre-existing conditions.
A car accident chiropractor can help you with lower back pain. Even if you weren’t involved in a car accident, they can still help you.
What to Expect When Getting Treatment From a Chiropractor for Lower Back Pain
First & foremost, the treatment should never be a painful experience. Initially, because there is soreness in the area it might be tender to work on. But, the treatment focuses on procedures that the patient tolerates well. Consider it like going to a gym where one would not work out extremely hard on the first visit because following day there would be extremely sore muscles. Each patient’s treatment depends on an individual basis and what they can tolerate. Initially the pain may be severe. So, therapy may be the primary source treatment for the first few visits until patient can tolerate spinal adjustments.
