Axness Integrative Medicine

What are the symptoms of lower back pain?

Pain and discomfort in your lower back can take on many forms and may include:

  • Aching muscles
  • Shooting or stabbing pain
  • Worse pain in certain positions, such as sitting, standing, or bending
  • Improvement upon reclining
  • Shooting pain down your legs

What causes lower back pain?

Just as there may be many forms of lower back pain, there are also many conditions that can cause it. For example, you may experience persistent pain after lifting a heavy object incorrectly. You may even experience pain without an obvious incident that caused the pain.

Sometimes, certain underlying conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis can cause lower back pain. In other cases, the pain may be due to:

  • Bulging or ruptured discs
  • Skeletal irregularities
  • Muscle or ligament strain

Whatever the cause of your back pain may be, there is a wide range of effective treatment options available to you.

What are the treatments for lower back pain?

If you have experienced or are currently experiencing back pain, you’re aware of how much it can impact your day-to-day life. Fortunately, the team at Axness Integrative Medicine brings a well-rounded and holistic approach to effectively and naturally manage lower back pain for their patients.

Initially, you get a thorough physical examination, along with a complete review of your health and medical history, to determine the cause of your lower back pain. After the initial consultation, the Axness Integrative Medicine specialists customize a care plan just for your needs.

Physical therapy to strengthen and stretch the core and back muscles is a very effective and noninvasive way to reduce the pain. In addition, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is an important step in back health, since carrying extra weight puts undue strain on your bones and muscle, and often leads to problems.

The team also provides expert chiropractic adjustments, as well as acupuncture treatments, to lessen or eliminate your lower back pain noninvasively.

If you’re ready to reduce or eliminate your back pain and regain your mobility and strength, call Axness Integrative Medicine today to schedule an appointment and learn about all of the treatment options available to you.
