Get Lower Back Pain Relief from Milwaukee Chiropractor

Many patients try to self-treat lower back pain with over-the-counter pain medications. Unfortunately, painkillers only provide temporary relief because they do not treat the underlying causes of lower back pain. While seeking treatment from a qualified medical professional can help, some doctors may only be able to provide prescriptions for painkillers, rather than treat the source of pain.

The best solution for comprehensive back pain treatment and chiropractic adjustment is to contact an experienced lower back pain chiropractor and schedule a chiropractic physical exam to determine the best treatment plan for you.

In a recent study in the Spine Journal, a globally respected medical journal, patients suffering from lower back pain were divided into two treatment groups: chiropractic care and medical doctor care. Patients with acute mechanical lower back pain noted significant improvements with chiropractic care. The patients who received care from medical doctors noted little to no improvements, even after 16 weeks of care. 


What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Worldwide, lower back pain is the leading cause of disability and is the second most common reason for doctor visits. There are a variety of factors leading to the cause of lower back pain. Old age, gender and overall physical health are the most important factors. Women are at more risk of lower back pain then men, and pregnant women are at an even greater risk. 

Everyday activities and simple movements, like bending over, can cause lower back pain and injuries. Strenuous physical exercise, if not done properly, can cause lower back pain due to sprained ligaments, ruptured discs, strained muscles, and irritated joints. Other factors capable of causing lower back pain, include:

Lower Back Pain in Athletes

Athletes are very susceptible to lower back injuries. Approximately 5-10% of all athletic injuries are related to the lumbar spine. This pain can be caused by a specific event, or be caused by repetitive minor injuries which accumulate to cause chronic pain.

Your lower back is subject to a lot of strain in nearly every type of athletic activity including:

Dr. Koch in Milwaukee is able to treat most athletes without major disruption in their daily lives. However, many athletes delay seeking treatment, believing the pain will heal on its own. Protecting your ability to be active and continuing to participate in sports is worth a chiropractic investment. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Koch and get the lower back pain relief you need. 

How Can Koch Chiropractic Treat Lower Back Pain?

To provide treatment for lower back pain, chiropractors commonly use spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression therapy can be done in several ways including:

Your chiropractor will use their hands or a device to apply a controlled force to a joint in the spine.  The force used depends on the method of spinal manipulation the chiropractor decides to use.  Applying force to a spine must be done by professionals with the expertise to relieve pain and not cause further injury.
