Lower back pain is one of the most common pain complaints worldwide. There is a 60 to 70 percent lifetime prevalence of non-specific low back pain in industrialized nations. At Lighthouse Family Chiropractic in Hilliard, OH, we understand how debilitating lower back pain and sciatica can be and offer natural healing for your pain through various treatment methods.
The truth of the matter is that almost everyone will experience low back pain at some point in your life. It is when the pain begins to interfere with your daily routine, sideline you from work, or prevent you from participating in activities you enjoy that you might consider seeking treatment from a chiropractor for your pain.
Why Seek the Services of a Chiropractor?
The problem with going to many modern medical professionals is that they are more likely to prescribe pain medications which can lead to dependency or quickly resort to surgical intervention when there are other options available to try before resorting to harsh medications and invasive surgeries.
The approach, when you come to see our chiropractor, is to first address your pain through non-surgical and non-medicinal treatment options. This process may involve a combination of massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments, spinal alignment treatments, and other techniques, as needed, to manage your pain so you can move forward with your life.
Once your pain is manageable, we will seek to correct the cause of your lower back pain whether it is the result of sciatica or something else entirely. This is a process that can take weeks, months, or even years to fully correct. You may even experience painful relapses along the way as you work toward healing. During this stage, you may experience further spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, and more advanced chiropractic therapies to help promote better alignment for your body.
Once the condition is corrected, your chiropractor will work with you to prevent the pain from reoccurring. This might involve lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, and other types of treatment.
Correcting low back pain problems with gentle corrections rather than harsh medications or invasive surgeries can help you have greater peace of mind in the treatment process as you work toward a pain-free outcome.
