Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

Your spine is a complex structure made up of carefully stacked bones (vertebrae), ligaments, and muscles. Between the vertebrae, you also have protective discs that keep the bones from rubbing against each other.

Since your lower back is one of the most flexible areas of your spine and is responsible for bearing a significant portion of your weight, it’s highly susceptible to injury. Lower back pain can stem from:

  • Overuse or wear-and-tear
  • Osteoarthritis or scoliosis
  • Herniated or ruptured discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sports injuries

Whether you recently suffered an injury and have an acute case of back pain or you’ve been struggling with back pain for years, you have plenty of modern treatment options.

How is lower back pain treated?

Dr. Nelson performs a thorough evaluation and checks all of your imaging reports, like X-rays and CT scans, to help design a custom treatment plan for you. Your individualized lower back pain treatment plan could include:

  • Regenerative stem cell therapy injections
  • Manual chiropractic manipulation
  • Ultrasound or electrical stimulation therapy
  • Customized stretching exercises
  • Clinical-grade nutritional supplements
  • Traction or supportive braces

The added benefit of going through a chiropractic treatment plan with Dr. Nelson is that he works to help your body heal. Not only does this improve your pain levels, but you will also become stronger, helping to prevent future issues.

How long does it take to recover from lower back pain?

Because Dr. Nelson and his team often use a combination of different treatments to help improve your lower back pain, you should start feeling relief shortly after your first visit. Traction and manual manipulation with the Cox® flexion distraction technique are some of the treatments known for providing relief right away.

If your treatment includes regenerative therapy, including stem cell injections, it could take several weeks to start noticing an improvement because your body is gradually creating new tissues. However, since your body continues to get stronger with each treatment, you should feel much better after every session at Root Medical.
