Lower Back Pain

 Lower Back Pain Treatment with our Irvine Chiropractor

Man suffering from low back painWhen your lower back is bothering you, it can be hard to relax—let alone work, exercise, or raise your family! Our Irvine chiropractor, Dr. Gary Martin, is committed to helping as many people as he can experience natural holistic healing from their low back pain that goes beyond just symptom management. We seek to help people learn about the underlying factors contributing to their pain so they can avoid recurring issues and improve their overall well-being. 

What's Causing Your Lower Back Pain? Common Diagnoses Seen by our Chiropractor in Irvine CA

The following conditions are frequently diagnosed with our chiropractor in Irvine CA: 

  • Muscle strains and spasms
  • Joint misalignments and spondylolisthesis (misalignment of vertebral bones)
  • Disc bulge, disc herniation (rupture), or degenerative disc disease (wearing down of the disc)
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)

These can be identified based on patient history, physical tests, and occasionally X-ray imaging. Specific risk factors are often identifiable, including:

  • Repetitive movement (such as frequent bending and twisting)
  • Heavy lifting, especially if done with poor technique
  • Core weakness and/or shortened hip muscles (which can abnormally pull on the pelvis and impose strain on the lumbar spine)
  • Excessive sedentary behavior
  • Male gender (especially if between between the ages of 30 and 55)
  • A prior history of low back pain
  • Acute trauma, e.g., auto accident, sports injury, or personal injury

Common Lower Back Pain Symptoms

People with lower back pain often report dull, achy, sore, or throbbing pain. Their low back may feel tender and tense.

They may also have pain that extends into one or both buttocks and legs, along with numbness, tingling, burning, and/or weakness (if a nerve root is being impinged in the lower spine, such as may happen with conditions like sciatica or lumbar radiculopathy).
