Common Causes Of Low Back Pain

Poor posture is a common contributor to lower back pain. Sitting hunched over a desk or computer potentially causes the spine to be out of normal alignment. When you walk with a slouched posture results in possible low back pain. 

Another common cause of lower back pain involves career. If your work duties require that you sit for long periods or perform repetitive duties such as heavy lifting, twisting or bending, you are potentially susceptible to experiencing back pain.

Injuries account for many back pain complaints, Automobile crash injuries, sports injuries or slip-and-fall incidents often lead to low back pain. Sprains, strains and pinched nerves are all common injuries often treated by our chiropractor. 

Conditions causing low back pain such as arthritis in your spine, spinal stenosis, sciatica and herniated discs are examples of other conditions that we treat at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation.

Typical Lower Back Pain Symptoms

Low back pain symptoms range from dull, aching to sharp, constant or severe, debilitating pain. People with injuries typically have symptoms of acute low back pain. This is common with personal injury accidents. As you heal, the pain begins to subside.

Chronic pain is pain that does not get better over time without treatment. This is common for many medical conditions that possibly worsen with time. Some individuals experiencing chronic lower back pain have difficulty walking or even getting out of bed in the morning. Dr. Eric Santjer, our chiropractor, treats both acute and chronic pain affecting the lower back.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
