Chiropractic for lower back and flank pain
Lower back and flank pain is one of the most common reason people seek out Chiropractic care. Often the lower back pain can start with facet joints being injured.
Facet joints are small joints located between the vertebrae of the spine that allow for movement and flexibility. Pain form facets is a type of lower back pain that is caused by inflammation or injury to these facet joints.
Facet pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, wear and tear, or degeneration of the joint. Symptoms of facet pain may include localized pain in the lower back, stiffness, and limited mobility. The pain may be worse with certain activities or movements, such as twisting or bending.
Chiropractors often use spinal manipulation or adjustments to relieve lower back pain. During a spinal adjustment, a chiropractor applies a controlled force to a joint in the spine to improve its alignment and function. This can help to reduce pain, stiffness, and improve range of motion.
Chiropractors may also use other techniques, such as mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and exercises, to help alleviate lower back pain. They may also provide advice on posture, ergonomics, exercises, stretches, and lifestyle modifications to help prevent future episodes of lower back pain.
Your chiropractor will perform a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of your pain and whether chiropractic care is appropriate for your specific condition. They may also work with other healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists or primary care physicians, to provide a comprehensive treatment plan.
