Lower back pain can be debilitating, keeping you from the lifestyle you enjoy most. If you’re suffering from acute or chronic pain in your lower back, our Birmingham chiropractor can help. At Back on Track Chiropractic, we offer lower back pain treatment for pain caused by injuries and chronic conditions. These FAQs from our Birmingham chiropractor explain more about the causes and treatment of lower back pain conditions.  


What factors increase my risk of lower back pain?

Various factors increase your risk of experiencing lower back pain, including age, pregnancy, excess weight gain, and weak abdominal and back muscles. Genetics also play a role in developing conditions like sciatica and spinal stenosis that cause lower back pain. 

What injuries can cause lower back pain?

Herniated discs, ligament sprains, muscle strains, and chronic conditions like sciatica are common causes of lower back pain. Sciatica pain can start in your lower back and extend through your buttocks, calf and leg. 

How does chiropractic care help with low back pain?

Chiropractic treatments offer an alternative to prescription drugs and surgery for lower back pain relief. At Back on Track Chiropractic, we combine chiropractic techniques like adjustments and spinal decompression with massage, hot & cold treatments, and physical therapy to help relieve pain and restore your mobility. 

Adjustments help correct misalignments in your spine that may be putting pressure on spinal nerves and causing pain. They restore balance to your system so you can heal. Spinal decompression helps reduce pain and discomfort of herniated discs by reducing stress and pressure off of vertebral joints and nerves. Cold laser treatments and massage relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and boost blood circulation to injured tissues to help you heal.

What measures can I take to prevent lower back pain?

By taking the following measures, you can prevent conditions that lead to low back pain and discomfort: 

• Maintain good posture when sitting or standing
• Use ergonomically correct furniture and equipment
• Avoid sudden movements that jolt your back
• Lift objects safely   
• Don’t overdo in heavy lifting

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Was traveling through from Texas and these wonderful people worked me in to their schedule. I have been to many chiropractors and can tell you the good Dr. knew what he was doing here! He adjusted me at a price that was only a percentage of what I would have been willing to pay for relief and I left with my neck turning again. The locals are lucky to have y'all!!!
