Comprehensive Lower Back Pain Treatment from Reimer Wellness Center, Your Los Altos Chiropractor
The chiropractic care and massage therapy that is provided at Reimer Wellness Center, your Los Altos chiropractor, are effective treatments for the lower back pain that many of us experience. Lower back pain is becoming more prevalent largely due to our more sedentary and long work days. We offer natural, drug-free, and effective treatment procedures for our patients that experience chronic pain that is negatively affecting their overall health and wellness.
Common Causes and Symptoms of Lower Back Pain
Poor posture and lack of strengthening exercises are two of the main culprits that contribute to lower back pain. Auto accidents, work-related mishaps, and sports injuries are also events that can create pain and stress in your lower back. If you have a degenerative disc disease, this can also affect the lower back region. These common causes are evidenced by the following symptoms:
- Tense muscles
- Muscle and back spasms
- Shooting and sharp pain
Many patients report that their symptoms come and go but never fully go away. Treatments such as pain relievers or other medications may temporarily mask the symptoms but they do not address the root cause of your pain. Our care is comprehensive in nature and we will treat the root cause of your pain. We will also work with you to formulate an extensive course of treatment that will address your pain and also boost your overall level of health and wellness.
Reimer Wellness Center Diagnoses and Treats Your Lower Back Pain
We will conduct a comprehensive exam of your body including the affected area and utilize diagnostic tools such as x-rays and MRIs when needed. Our holistic approach to care will also include a review of your medical history and lifestyle habits that can contribute to the misalignment of your spine. With chiropractic care, we will realign your spine where necessary which will reduce the pressure on your joints that can cause pain and inflammation.
Our treatments are individualized to fit each patient's needs, often utilizing several techniques such as the Cox Technique, the Graston Technique, Massage Therapy, Adjustments, Nutritional Counseling and Lifestyle Guidance. Our holistic course of treatment may also include stretches and strengthening exercises that can be added to your daily routine and help keep your spine supported in proper alignment.
At Reimer Wellness Center we believe in treating the cause of your pain in a comprehensive and effective manner that lessens your chance of re-injury or reoccurring problems. Our practice utilizes all-natural and non-invasive treatment.
