Low back pain is a term that refers to aching, burning, stabbing, or shooting pain or discomfort in the lower part of your back. Pain may radiate into your buttocks, hips, or down your legs. Back pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide and the most common reason for missed work.
There are many possible reasons for low back pain. Two of the most common are trauma related to a fall or injury in an auto accident. Other possible causes of low back pain can include:
You may be at higher risk for low back pain if you are obese, pregnant, an older adult, a smoker, or live a sedentary lifestyle. You are also at risk for low back pain or injury if you have a job that requires frequent heavy lifting, twisting, or bending.
After a complete assessment and evaluation, Dr. Gentry, DC, develops a treatment plan using noninvasive, nonsurgical, evidence-based methods to fix the underlying causes of your low back pain.
Treatment options may include:
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a treatment that uses state-of-the-art technology to gently stretch your spine using carefully controlled force. This creates a vacuum between your discs and relieves pressure before gently repositioning them.
Dr. Gentry, DC, uses an FDA-cleared deep tissue laser to relieve low back pain. The laser passes through your skin harmlessly to reach six to nine inches below the skin, where your back pain originates. The deep tissue laser relieves your pain by promoting endorphin release, speeding up your body's natural healing response, relieving inflammation, improving circulation, and enhancing nerve function.
With chiropractic spinal adjustments, Dr. Gentry, DC, can realign your lumbar spine. This corrects the imbalances responsible for your low back pain in a natural way.
Other treatments can include physical therapy modalities, nutritional supplements, and other noninvasive solutions that emphasize your whole-body wellness.
Dr. Gentry, DC, strives to resolve structural and mechanical problems with your spine to encourage natural healing and help you find relief from pain.
