What Causes Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can be caused by both muscle-related and spinal-related issues. Muscle-related issues that can lead to lower back pain include strained lower back muscles, overuse injuries, and prior injuries such as those due to sports or car accidents. Poor posture can also lead to lower back pain.
Spinal-related issues that can cause lower back pain include ailments such as:
- Degenerative disc disorder, which is a wearing away of the discs in the vertebrae due to older age
- Herniated discs or bulging discs are a tear in the disc or compression of the disc (respectively) that can lead to compressed nerves around the spine
- Sciatica, which is the compression of the sciatic nerve that runs down the lower leg can lead to sharp pain
These are just some of the many causes of lower back pain that your chiropractor can help diagnose.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me?
