Low Back Pain Treatment: Chiropractic Care as a Drug and Opioid-Free Solution

Written By Scottsdale Spinal Healthcare on February 28, 2018

Do you experience a dull ache in, or sharp jolts of pain radiating from, your low back?

Low back pain is extremely common – you aren't alone.

If you're sick of masking the pain with over-the-counter or prescription drugs, it's time to find a new low back pain treatment.

Chiropractic care addresses low back pain at its source so you can ditch the pills once and for all.

What Causes Back Pain?

Over time, a variety of environmental conditions such as injury and poor posture can cause discs in the spine to slowly (or quickly) herniate (so called slipped disc).

Then one day: the pain hits. 

Your spine is very complex – everything must be in proper alignment to function correctly. 

Back pain can take years to manifest, but when it does, it REALLY hurts. Here are just a few factors that can cause low back pain:

  • Injuries from work or auto accidents
  • Sitting for extended periods of time
  • Weak abdominal and core muscles
  • Slouching and poor posture

In many cases, low back pain doesn't begin and end with isolated discomfort. In fact, low back pain can also trigger pain in other areas such as the hips, buttocks, legs, upper back, or neck.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Low Back Pain

To get rid of the pain for good, it's important to take a comprehensive approach to back pain treatment.

What's causing the pain and how can you fix it?

Medications don't address the source of the pain – they just hide the symptoms.

Chiropractic care targets the root cause of your low back pain by encouraging proper spinal alignment, posture, and healthy habits.

Techniques are personalized and may include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Adjustments and subluxation
  • Therapeutic massage, exercise, and stretching
  • Counseling for healthy lifestyle tips and nutrition
