Lower Back Pain
Probably the most common physical condition which causes people to seek chiropractic treatment is lower back pain. The severity of your pain may vary greatly, depending on the cause. Muscle strain from heavy lifting or a sudden movement can lead to minor local soreness or extreme and debilitating pain that leaves you bedridden. Both cases would be considered “axial” lower back pain and will typically respond well to a combination of physical therapy and rest.
Pain which radiates down from the lower back to the buttocks and legs is likely related to subluxation, where one or more of the vertebrae is dislocated. This can lead to a lumbar herniated disc which in turn can lead to pressure on the sciatic nerve, causing sciatica. Multiple non-surgical treatments are available for subluxation and its subsequent symptoms, including traction therapy, which incorporates spinal decompression.
Other factors must always be considered, such as age and lifestyle, for the many causes of acute and chronic lower back pain. Remember that no matter the origin of the condition, Sessions Chiropractic Clinic encourages you to schedule a free consultation and take that first step toward diagnosis and recovery.
Shoulder pain is also quite common and can have many causes. Sports injuries, arthritis and tendonitis/inflammation all respond well to chiropractic treatments. As we mention in the topic of trigger point therapy, you may discover that your shoulder pain actually originates in a different part of your body, such as the cervical spine (in your neck) because the network of nerves from this region is connected to your shoulder and rotator cuff. Sessions Chiropractic Clinic can determine the cause of your shoulder pain and find a treatment suitable to your unique condition.
