Learn About Lower Back Pain From Your Philadelphia Chiropractor
Lower back pain is nobody’s friend. Whether you experience occasional twinges that make work and exercising hard, or have truly chronic lower back pain, you need help getting past it today. Oxford Rehabilitation Center is here to help you do just that.
One of the most confusing things about back pain is its ubiquity. Because it is so common, it’s almost impossible to diagnose the cause on your own. That’s where a Philadelphia chiropractor comes in. We can take a look at your back and body as a whole, help you diagnose the cause of the pain and form a treatment plan based on your individual needs. If you’d like to get past that pain and back to normal life, please get in touch with your Philadelphia chiropractor today.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Your lower back, or lumbar region, does heavy duty. Not only does it have to support your torso, it also bears much of the stress caused by problems in hips and legs. Since it is related to so many structures, it can be difficult to tell on your own what might be causing the pain. Some common causes include:
- Use injuries from work or other repetitive actions (hobbies, driving, lifting kids)
- Traumatic injury from car wrecks or work accidents
- Bad posture
- Congenital conditions
- Slipped discs
- Nutritional issues
… and more. Most of these conditions can cause similar symptoms, such as pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, radiating pain into hips and legs, and inability to do everyday activities. Basic back pain is easy to diagnose: You either have it or you don’t. However, true diagnosis requires a professional.
