Low back pain is a common issue that many people experience at some point in their lives. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

Muscle Strain: This is one of the most common causes, often from lifting heavy objects improperly or sudden movements that strain the muscles and ligaments in the lower back.

Herniated Disc: When the soft material inside a disc between the vertebrae bulges or ruptures, it can press on a nerve, causing pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease: Over time, the discs between the vertebrae can wear down, leading to pain as bones rub together or nerves get pinched.

Spinal Stenosis: This is a narrowing of the spinal canal which can put pressure on the nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs.

Skeletal Irregularities: Conditions like scoliosis, where the spine curves abnormally, can lead to back pain.

Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back, causing pain and stiffness.

Sciatica: This occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the legs, is irritated or compressed, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs.

Sedentary lifestyle, sitting or driving for long periods of time, and obesity are also contributing factors to the causes of lower back pain.

After a thorough exam and possible x-rays and other diagnostic testing, Dr. Brad Richardson uses the following modalities to treat your lower back pain:

Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments focus on realigning and balancing the spine so that the body can heal naturally and without the need for medications or surgical intervention.

Decompression Therapy: a non-invasive mechanical traction therapy that promotes healing and space in between the discs.

Class IV Medical Laser Therapy: another non-invasive, extremely therapeutic and effective treatment that reduces inflammation, reduces scar tissue and pain chemicals.
