Lower Back Pain Treatment

Lower Back Pain Treatment From Cornerstone Chiropractic

Chiropractic pain management at Cornerstone Chiropractic, in Everett, is an effective alternative to taking painkillers on a long-term basis or undergoing invasive surgery for lower back pain. Our Chiropractor, Dr. Lichfield, is an expert in using non-medical chiropractic adjustments to relieve acute and chronic pain that could be restricting movements or causing frustration.

What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Pain in the lower back usually stems from subluxation (misalignment) of the tiny bones, spinal joints, or discs in the lumbar spine. Bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments make up the musculoskeletal structure surrounding the spine. They allow bending, twisting, and flexing. However, these structures could get injured or misaligned due to:

  • A fall, sport, auto accident injury
  • Pinched nerve roots
  • Poor workplace ergonomics
  • Bad posture when lifting heavy objects
  • Herniated lower back discs (slipped discs)
  • Degenerative disc diseases, e.g., osteoarthritis or sciatica

Symptoms of Pain in the Lower Back

  • Sharp stabbing or dull aching pain
  • Pain persists or comes and go
  • Muscle weakness
  • Referred pain in the buttocks, hips, or legs
  • Numbness, tingling, or burning sensation
  • Pain or stiffness when bending

How Our Chiropractor in Everett Will Treat Your Pain

A physical examination, evaluation, and tests will be done to diagnose the cause of the pain. Chiropractic adjustment techniques including spinal manipulation may be performed to help alleviate the pain. This is a safe, FDA-approved technique used to realign the spine and take pressure off surrounding discs, spinal joints, or impinged nerve roots. Stretch exercises, massage therapies, and ice or heat therapy may also be combined to relax muscles and improve mobility.
