Lower Back Pain

How does Dr. Kielur treat lower back pain?

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:

  • How long have you been experiencing lower back pain?
  • Is it related to an injury or did you do something that triggered the pain?
  • Are you in pain constantly or does it come and go?
  • What does your lower back pain feel like? Is it achy or sharp?

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.
