Back Pain Treatment

Treatments for Low Back Pain

Identifying The Cause

The first step in treating low back pain is to determine what has and is causing the low back pain. Once the causes and contributing factors are identified, a successful treatment plan can be structured to eliminate the pain and achieve the goals of the patient.

Most individuals experiencing low back pain have a combination of:

•vertebral subluxations

•faulty spinal biomechanics

•deconditioned and weak spinal musculature

•improper firing patterns of spinal musculature

•poor postural habits

•poor diet and nutritional practices

•a history of activities (work or play) generating high levels of spinal stress
