Lower Back Pain Q & A

What defines lower back pain?

Lower back pain often occurs after lifting a heavy object, a sudden movement, poor back posture, or a sports injury. Usually caused by torn or pulled muscles, lower back sprain or strains can happen suddenly, or develop slowly over time from repetitive movements.

While sprains and strains don’t sound severe and don't typically cause long-lasting pain, the acute pain can severely impact your day-to-day activities.

Lower back pain can consist of an assortment of symptoms depending on your specific injury. You might complain of dull aching pain that stays in the same place on your lower back, or you may experience pain that shoots down to your buttocks, legs, and feet.

Regardless of what your symptoms might be, being able to describe them can help the providers at Worley Chiropractic Clinic accurately diagnosis the reason for your specific pain and come up with an effective treatment plan.

What is flexion distraction?

Flexion distraction is a non-surgical technique that the providers at Worley Chiropractic Clinic use to treat many spine conditions that cause pain in your lower back. The procedure involves the use of a unique table to increase the motion in your spine and resolve disc bulges and herniations.

What are the benefits of flexion distraction?

Because flexion distraction is a conservative option for fixing your herniated discs, you don’t have to deal with the burden of undergoing invasive surgery. Flexion distraction is a safe and gentle procedure that takes pressure off of the spinal nerves that might be causing you trouble.

How does flexion distraction therapy work?

Flexion distraction involves a special automated table that distracts and flexes your spine in a gentle rhythmic motion.

The stretching expands the space between the bones in your spine, reducing the pressure on your spinal nerves. As a result, your spine can move naturally, increasing your spinal motion and alleviating your pain in the process.

Not only is flexion distraction useful for treating disc bulges and hernias, but it can also help treat back pain as a result of pregnancy, sciatica and spinal stenosis. Sometimes, flexion distraction can be used as a substitute for physical therapy for older patients as well.
