Lower Back Pain Treatment from a Bondi Junction, Australia Chiropractor
Your lower back is a portion of your body highly susceptible to strain and other injuries. Pregnancy and various medical conditions will contribute to pain in this region of your back as well. However, at Back to Life Chiropractic Centre, serving Bondi Junction, New South Wales, Australia and the surrounding region, our chiropractors provide the area with natural solutions to treat the problem.
Causes of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain occurs due to various conditions of the back including ankylosing spondylitis or a herniated or bulging disc. Ankylosing spondylitis is a condition that may potentially cause your vertebrae to fuse together. A herniated disc is when a spinal disc's outer lining tears, which lets the contents of the disc flow into the spinal column.
A bulging disc occurs when the outer portion of the disc weakens and the contents stretch this thin lining. You could have spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, osteomyelitis or osteoporosis. Poor posture, pregnancy, sciatica, scoliosis or various other conditions may lead to lower back pain also. Our chiropractors are able to diagnose and help ease your pain and discomfort through holistic means.
Chiropractic Treatments for Lower Back Pain
A spinal adjustment is probably the most common procedure we perform at our office, and it's the most well-known chiropractic treatment. It consists of a skilled chiropractor manually moving the vertebrae in the spine in order to realign them. The chiropractic treatment doesn't cause any pain.
This procedure alleviates pressure on the surrounding tissue and nerves, helping conditions ranging from a degenerative disc disease to sciatica to poor posture. You might require more than one treatment or a combination therapy to optimize the results.
Flexion distraction is a therapy that utilizes an automated table that flexes your back. Our chiropractor positions you on the table, and then the table moves you in certain ways in order to stretch the spine. Typically, flexion distraction helps those who have conditions like sciatica or a herniated disc. Although the treatment sounds a bit scary, you won't experience pain. The table moves your body slowly.
Our chiropractors may use exercise therapy to stretch your back. Our chiropractor will guide you through a series of exercises tailored to your particular needs. These exercises work to stretch the muscles in the back, which can reduce your pain. Chiropractic exercises also increase your flexion and function and will enhance your physical therapy after an automobile accident or other personal injury.
The exercises increase blood flow to the area, so any injuries heal quicker. They also reduce the amount of inflammation you have. They're safe to perform during pregnancy because our chiropractor always ensures your safety when devising a plan specific to your needs.
In some cases, our chiropractors may recommend massage therapy. This particular treatment soothes sore muscles, increases blood flow to the area and has the ability to reduce your pain enough to work on your recovery.
