Chronic lower back pain is caused by many different factors, including sciatica, a common condition caused by a pinched sciatic nerve. Whatever the underlying cause, our West Hollywood chiropractor, Dr. Michelle Marshall, can help by performing spinal adjustments at Marshall Chiropractic Wellness Center. This safe and non-invasive treatment helps eliminate pain caused by injury, musculoskeletal imbalances, and conditions linked to spine or disc deterioration.
Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
Pain commonly comes from constant stress on the spinal joints, bones, disc, and soft tissue that make up the lumbar spine. Stress is caused by repetitive motion, prolonged sitting, excess weight, poor posture habits, and lifting heavy things the wrong way. Overuse and pressure on this very flexible part of the vertebrae eventually take a toll, making it more prone to pain from injuries and degenerative disc disease.
Injuries and Conditions Linked to Lumbar Pain
Chiropractic care has proven to provide lasting relief for pain that cause or stem from an auto accident or sports injury, spinal stenosis, lumbar arthritis, or:
- Lumbar herniated or bulging disc
- Nerve root compression
- Lumbar strains and sprains
Typical Low Back Pain Symptoms
A dull nagging, sharp, burning, or disabling pain, stiffness, or trouble bending, sitting, or standing for long periods are all too familiar to patients living with low back problems. Those with sciatica may feel pain in the buttock, hip, or leg. Numbness, tingling, weakness, or loss of sensation may also occur if a protruding disc is irritating the nerve root.

Spinal adjustment is an effective method that can treat and prevent pain or spine-related illnesses. An adjustment is done using the hands or an instrument to gently move the spine into alignment. Spinal correction can also take the pressure off the disc and nerve, reduce chronic pain, and activate the body's natural healing system. It even improves movement, restores nerve function, and can be routinely done to maintain spine health.
Massage therapy, corrective exercises, and nutrition advice are other holistic healing methods that can improve your low back pain. Massages soothe aching lower back muscles, improve blood circulation, and reduce swelling.
