The first step in treating lower back pain is to diagnose the condition causing the pain. Dr. Kielur begins lower back pain treatment with a thorough examination. He will ask questions about your pain including:
Questions like these help Dr. Kielur to diagnose the cause of your pain. He will also perform a physical exam to check your range of motion, strength, flexibility, and to see if there is any obvious deformity. He may order diagnostic imaging tests like MRIs or X-rays if more information is needed for a diagnosis.
Once he is satisfied with the diagnoses, Dr. Kielur will use chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments and decompression to correct any alignment issues that are causing you pain. He also practices DRS Protocols™ when appropriate. DRS Protocols™ combine different chiropractic treatments to create negative intradiscal pressure. This allows water, oxygen, and other essential nutrients to enter the vertebral disc area, rehydrating and restoring the discs.
There are a wide variety of conditions and injuries that lead to lower back pain including:
Your posture may also contribute to back pain. Your daily activities can also contribute. If you work in a job where you spend all day standing or if you have to do regular heavy lifting you will put extra stress on your spine. Some physical activities and hobbies can put you at risk for injury or other conditions that lead to back pain.
You should make an appointment for treatment if you are in pain. There is no reason to live in pain when treatment is so easily available. Even if you’re the kind of person who thinks that they will just get on with it and the pain will go away, you should seek chiropractic treatment to make sure that your lower back pain doesn’t get worse and that you are able to carry on with your normal daily activities and responsibilities.
