Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a common complaint we treat at First Choice Integrated Health Care in Knoxville, TN. Back pain affects about 80% of people at some point in their lives. If you are suffering from back pain, the good news is, we can help.


Common Causes of Low Back Pain

Low back pain can be caused by many factors. Back injuries, including sprains, strains, and whiplash, are potential causes, particularly if the pain is acute or starts suddenly. Spinal misalignment, a lack of exercise, arthritis, bulging or herniated discs, and sciatica can also lead to low back pain. These issues often result in chronic back pain, which means it persists for an extended period.

Lower Back Pain Treatment

Chiropractic care for low back pain begins with proper diagnosis. Your chiropractor will conduct a physical examination and discuss your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. Once they've identified the cause of your back pain, they will develop a personalized lower back pain treatment plan.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments are typically the initial treatment for lower back pain. These adjustments address any misalignments in your spine. Misalignments can cause back pain and strain certain areas unnecessarily, increasing the risk of back injury. Proper spinal alignment relieves pain, enhances your range of motion, boosts blood flow, and enables your body to function optimally.

Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises can also help alleviate back pain. Your chiropractor will determine the most suitable exercises for you and guide you on performing them. You'll continue these exercises at home. These exercises can strengthen weak muscles, improve flexibility and range of motion, and provide pain relief. Over time, they contribute to maintaining proper spinal alignment and reducing the risk of injury.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is rooted in the belief that the body has the capacity to heal itself, often requiring some assistance. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cell therapy are part of regenerative medicine. These therapies facilitate your body's healing by supplying healing nutrients and cells.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is another potential treatment for lower back pain. It can relax tense muscles and alleviate pain, while also enhancing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and aiding toxin removal from the body.
