Low back pain can occur for a variety of reasons, including; misalignment, spinal injury, or neuropathy. Also, your lower back can ache due to irritation not even related to the area – a condition known as “referred pain.” Whether suffering from acute pain or a chronic ongoing problem, using chiropractic for lower back pain is often very effective.

Invasive surgical procedures to correct low back pain carry a great deal of risk – and may not always be successful. At OptiLux Wellness, we offer a custom-tailored approach to each patient’s pain – and provide all-natural relief through various chiropractic techniques.

Manipulative Therapy

Chiropractic science is a hands-on healing art, and manipulative therapy is generally included in the treatment plan for most patients.

As the name suggests, manipulative therapy for lower back pain involves a high-velocity arm lever maneuver that can quickly alleviate misaligned vertebrae. Known informally as an “adjustment,” this technique for lower back pain can bring near-immediate relief, reduce irritability in spinal nerve endings, and increase range of motion.

Mobilization Approach

The mobilization approach to lower back pain involves low-velocity stretches and exercises, designed primarily to increase a patient’s range of motion and flexibility.

Mobilization is often a good starting point for those who are new to chiropractic treatments or are experiencing significant muscle and joint tightness. Further, some patients with a sensitive nervous system may elect to pursue mobilization instead of high-velocity adjustments – we highly value patient communication and honor each patient’s individual preferences.
