Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation for Lower Back Pain Relief

Lower back pain for patients can often be annoying enough that they look for ways in which they can get some back pain relief. One of those ways is spinal manipulation used by all chiropractors. One would seek this kind of help I the lower back didn't improve on its own with self-care such as trying to remain active, using heat and taking some pain relieving medicine. But there are times when it can be too difficult to treat and a patient needs to see a professional.

Trained health care professionals are well trained to be able to use what is called spinal manipulation to help give a patient back pain relief and to also improve their overall physical function which would be the ability to walk and move around without pain.

Patients who go see a specialist for back pain relief need to realize that spinal manipulation is just one of a variety of different options for helping the lower back. Other options are light exercise, massage as well as physical therapy all of these things actually can give mild to moderate back pain relief. However, it does appear that spinal manipulation does appear to work just as good as any conventional method.

This type of treatment also seems to be generally very safe when it is performed by a licensed and trained professional. There are some common side effects that can be some discomfort to the area which is minor and goes away in a day or two. Any kind of serious complications are rare.

One serious complication however, and it is very rare, is cauda equina syndrome or CES. This is a narrowing of the lower part of the spinal canal where the nerves will become pinched and this can cause severe pain, weakness, no feeling in one or both legs along with some bladder and bowel problems.

Lower back pain is probably the most common health complaint that people go to a doctor for. It usually affects 8 out of 10 patients sometime during their lives. For most people this kind of back pain will go away without treatment after just a few days to a couple of weeks. However, for some patients the pain can become chronic and can last months to years. If this happens the pain can become debilitating. This also can be a challenging type of condition to diagnose and treat for some.

When a person decides on trying spinal manipulation they need to make sure that the person practicing it is one of these trained professionals like a chiropractor, osteopathic physician, naturopathic physician, physical therapist or a medical doctor trained in it. These professionals will do this technique by using their hands or sometimes a device to apply some controlled force to joints in the spine. The amount of pressure or force applied will depend upon the type of spinal manipulation that is being used. The whole goal in the end it to achieve back pain relief and to improve functioning.
