The Common Causes Of Back Pain From Our Back Pain Specialist in Lubbock
Dr. Kothmann at Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine is our back pain specialist. If you are struggling with back pain, our chiropractor performs a diagnostic evaluation to determine the source of your back pain. Dr. Kothmann will evaluate the range of motion in your back, identify the source of your discomfort and offer solutions. Your chiropractic care program may include hands-on, gentle adjustments of your spine, hot and cold therapy, corrective exercises or lifestyle adjustments. Your back pain may be new if you are injured in an auto accident, sports participation or at work. Your pain may be progressively getting worse from years of poor posture, unhealthy habits or a genetic condition affecting your vertebrae. We are here to help reduce your discomfort from back pain and look forward to exploring our natural treatment options.
Causes of Back Pain
That achy, uneasy or tight feeling in your back can interfere with your daily tasks and your mood. Chronic pain is not easily ignored, but we offer solutions to alleviate your pain. We specialize in treating conditions that contribute to back pain, including causes such as:
- Muscle Strain. Damage to the muscles supporting your spine can pull your back out of alignment and lead to pain. You may have suffered from soft tissue damage by lifting an overly heavy object, quickly moving into an awkward position, or during a slip or fall. Our chiropractic adjustments gently realign your spine and help the muscles to remember their proper position.
- Disc Conditions. Your back pain may be a result of a disc condition that decreases the space between your vertebrae. Degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc are two causes of back pain and we have solutions for these. With traction and manipulations, we increase the space for your discs and remove the painful pressure on your nerves.
- Osteoarthritis. A weakening in the bones, such as osteoporosis, may also lead to back discomfort. If you are dealing with osteoarthritis, the pain in your spine can be debilitating. Our chiropractic care services can lessen the chances of further weakening of the bones and also provide relief from the pain. We teach you exercises to strengthen the bones and muscles and lead to an improved quality of life.
- Abnormal Curvatures. If your spine has an abnormal curve such as scoliosis, lordosis or kyphosis, we help to gently nudge your spine into place. We also educate you on corrective exercises to help keep a normal curvature and reduce your discomfort.
