Lumbar or lower back pain is the most common condition seen by Chiropractors. People who have never been to the chiropractor may try pain killers and muscle relaxers first. When a person has severe lower back pain the medication is often not enough. A 1994 report from the Agency for Health Care and Policy and Research found that Chiropractic is the safest initial treatment for acute lower back pain.

Lower back pain is often caused by lifting, falling, or too much sitting or standing. Automobile accidents and work accidents also are reasons that people seek care for lower back pain.

Lower back pain can be accompanied by the following:

  • Hip Pain
  • Leg Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Ankle Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Tingling and Numbness
  • Sciatica
  • bulged or herniated discs

  • As healing occurs lower back exercises may be suggested.
