Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can turn your daily routine into a painful endurance test. Even tasks as simple as driving a car or walking upstairs may become impossible when you suffer from lower back pain. Even worse, the longer you ignore your discomfort, the more debilitating the symptoms often become. If you're struggling with lower back pain, schedule an appointment with Reimer Wellness Center in Los Altos, CA today.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Many factors may contribute to pain in your lower back. If you lift something too heavy at work, or if you lift a heavy box the wrong way, you can strain muscles that will cause your lower back to stiffen up, making normal movement painful. Sitting for long periods in furniture that's not ergonomically designed can also wreck your back. Falls can cause problems, so may a car accident or a sports injury. There are very few limits to what can cause dull or shooting pain throughout your lower back. It's important to seek medical attention right away since injuries that aren't treated in a timely fashion may worsen.

Chiropractic care at Reimer Wellness Center can provide relief of your lower back pain. Non-invasive and holistic treatment is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you're home the same day. Pain relief is often immediate, and many patients can return to their regular routine right away. For others, multiple appointments may be necessary to retrain the stretched or maladapted muscles. Holistic chiropractic care is a safe and affordable alternative to surgery.
Once you've been properly diagnosed, your chiropractor may recommend a variety of treatment options, including:
- therapeutic massage
- ultrasound therapy
- cold laser application
- electrical stimulation
- cervical traction
Chiropractic treatment may help to alleviate multiple types of pain, in addition to the pain experienced in your lower back. Chiropractic treatment is useful for easing headaches, stiff neck, and even pain in the arms and legs.
