LOW BACK PAIN - PELVIS/THIGH/LEG PAIN
What is it?
Low back pain is a discomfort experienced approximately between the bottom of the ribs at the back and middle of the pelvis. Studies have shown that the most common reason for low back pain is joint dysfunction. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and/or range of motion, or an inability to stand straight. Occasionally, pain felt in one part of the body may “radiate” from a disorder or injury elsewhere in the body. Some acute pain syndromes can become more serious if left untreated. The pain may be felt constantly or when performing certain movements. Back pain may be combined with pain into the leg, traveling down below the knee; this is otherwise known as sciatica, because the main nerve to the leg (the sciatic nerve) is being irritated by pressure on it.

The Chiropractic Solution
Chiropractic treatment can greatly reduce the time it takes for one’s low back to return to full form. If treated early enough after an injury, one’s recovery will be much quicker than if the discomfort was ignored. Secondly, untreated back pain which resolves on its own or was numbed with medication will likely reoccur and evolve into a chronic condition. Chiropractic treatment will help prevent recurrences by insuring that you have proper motion in your spine through adjustments and by identifying weak areas which need strengthening. Doctors at Carlisle Chiropractic are committed to diagnosing and addressing each low back pain case in a unique fashion, and taking the appropriate steps to return the patient to optimum health.
Treatment for lower back pain depends on the underlying cause of the back pain. Often the treatment is the specific adjustment of a joint in the spine. The gentle adjustment produces an increased gapping of the respective joints, which leads to reduction of muscle spasm and reflex mediated pain. Mobilization of the low back many times releases the compression/irritation on associated soft tissue in the area. This leads to reduced signs and symptoms traveling into the pelvis, thigh, and leg. In addition to adjusting the area of an involvement, the doctors at Carlisle Chiropractic will support their treatment with neuromuscular electrical stimulation and physiotherapy to ensure the patient’s complete recovery from the condition.
