lower-back-painLower back pain is among the most usual chronic pain conditions we treat at Advanced Wellness & Rehab in Wichita, Kansas. The rib cage supports and secures the spine in the thoracic region, but the lower back vertebrae has no such support system. Although this makes the lower back exceptionally mobile, it also makes it more prone to suffer from a misalignment or harm. Our lower back treatments in Wichita consists of innovative techniques that will relieve your pain, correct a misalignment and underlying cause, like a pinched nerve, which can produce a number of other conditions.

As we said before back pain may be a result of countless factors. Simple day-to-day actions such as sitting down improperly or lifting items in a strange manner can bring on pain in the lower back. Here are some of the most frequent causes of lower back pain.

Lower Back Pain Causes:

  • Myofascial pain – Among the more prevalent reasons for lower back pain, myofascial pain is long-lasting pain that impacts the connective tissue (fascia) of muscles.
  • Muscle strain – Muscles may become tight and even get small rips from over use and strain. This strain may become a longstanding state if not properly treated.
  • Herniated and bulging discs – Discs that act as cushion between the vertebrae of the spine can “slip” location and even burst causing herniation, resulting in severe nerve pain.
  • Arthritis/Osteoarthritis – The breakdown of cartilage in the small disc joints that the spinal column have in the back can cause the space to narrow around the spinal cord.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease – Natural aging and break down of the spinal discs, the discs may lose their cushioning, resulting in lower back pain.
  • Obesity – Excessive weight on the body may cause improper movement patterns, poor posture and extra pressure and stress on the lower back.
  • Sciatica– Disc herniation or traumatic impact can put pressure on the sciatic nerve, resulting in sharp and shooting pains.  This pain typically runs through the hip and down the legs.
  • Improper posture/Sleeping position– can lead to pain and strain in the muscles and imbalances in the lower back.
