LOW BACK / HIP PAIN
Low back pain (LBP) is the most common musculoskeletal disorder worldwide. It is a major source of disability, productivity loss and a frequent reason for medical consultations. Most commonly, mechanical issues and soft-tissue injuries are the cause of low back pain. These injuries can include damage to the intervertebral discs, compression of nerve roots, and improper movement of the spinal joints.
Low back pain might begin as acute due to an injury, but can become chronic. Managing pain appropriately at an early stage can help limit symptoms in both time and severity. Identifying the symptoms and getting a diagnosis that pinpoints the underlying cause of the pain is the first step in obtaining effective pain relief.
The Chiropractic Approach
Pierce Chiropractic Center uses a revolutionary healthcare procedure that focuses on pinpointing the area of the spine that is dysfunctional. Our procedure identifies subtle misalignments of the vertebrae and corrects them using a light-force instrument adjustor. For patients with low back/hip complaints, we will not only do our standard evaluation of the neck, due to the compensatory nature of the spine, but we will also perform an in-depth evaluation of the lumbar spine/hip region.
