Doctors of chiropractic are dedicated to treating injuries and disorders of the spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal system using safe, non-invasive chiropractic care. Because lower back pain can have so many possible causes and be so debilitating to your way of life, it’s very important to visit a doctor of chiropractic to determine the root cause of your back pain and the best course of treatment.

If you’re suffering from lower back pain due to an accident, overuse injury, or illness, an experienced chiropractor at Optilux Wellness Center in New Kensington can help! Dr. Ronald Festa opened his chiropractic practice in 1993, and during that time, he’s treated thousands of patients. The knowledge he has gained through his chiropractic training and continuing education, as well as his years of experience, can benefit you.

What Causes Lower Back Pain? 

Before suggesting any chiropractic care treatment options, your chiropractor will first need to determine the root cause of your lower back pain. He will give you a thorough physical examination and take a detailed patient history in order to learn as much as he can about the type of pain, the exact location, when it started and how often it occurs, and your daily lifestyle. It is important to be as honest and as thorough as possible during this examination. 

After his assessment is complete, your doctor of chiropractic will have a good sense of what is causing your lower back pain. Some common causes are mechanical back pain, meaning stress to the spine and/or surrounding muscles and tendons due to lifestyle or overuse; a nerve problem like a herniated disc or pinched nerve; an injury to the spine or muscle; or in rare cases, an underlying illness or condition affecting the spine.

How Chiropractic Care Can Treat Lower Back Pain

After determining the primary cause of your lower back pain, your chiropractor will develop a comprehensive care plan to provide you with relief. Common treatments for lower back pain may include spinal decompression therapy, spinal manipulation, massage therapy, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes. Depending on the severity of the issue and the cause of your lower back pain, your chiropractor may also recommend CBD oil or PRP treatment.
