Do you suffer from lower back pain? Are you curious about what causes the muscle spasms around the top of your hips, or tension around the base of your spine? If you’re using medication or considering surgery for your back pain, then you could be creating a host of other problems.
Injuries, accidents, and other reasons for back pain can affect quality of life. While some people resort to strong doses of pharmaceuticals or even debilitating surgery in search of relief, those in Manassas have another, less invasive option. Are you considering non-traditional therapies for your back pain?
If you’re interested in learning more about why your back hurts and what you can do about it then you’ll want to invest 20 minutes to listen to this edition of Back Talk, where your host Kimberly Henrie interviews Dr. Steve Lininger of Manassas Chiropractic & Rehab about reasons for lower back pain and your options for finding relief.
Many seek medical help for lower back pain. The American Chiropractic Association says that visits to the doctor’s office for back pain are only outnumbered by upper-respiratory infections. This interview is an opportunity to find relief without resorting to strong medication or invasive surgeries.
Learning the Most Common Reasons for Back Pain
Kimberly kicks off the episode by getting straight to the point and asking Dr. Lininger about the most common causes he sees for back pain in his Manassas clinic. His answer not only includes the direct causes, but also their effects on the nerves, muscles, and discs located in the back.
Then Dr. Lininger goes on to explain the mechanics of back injuries. He fills listeners in on the specifics by walking through illustrations that they can use while listening to the episode. This really helps give a clear picture of what’s going on when pain shoots through your lower back.
If this describes how your lower back feels after traditional treatments, then it’s time to look at what chiropractic care can offer in the way of relief.
Why Back Pain Doesn’t Have to Control Your Life
Many people seek chiropractic care for back pain. During the podcast Dr. Lininger goes into detail about some of the complaints he frequently hears from his Prince William County patients, and he also answers the following questions:
- Can a chiropractor help with my asthma symptoms?
- Could lower back pain negatively affect my sex life?
- Can a chiropractor help if I’ve already had medical help?
Now ask yourself two questions. Do you avoid certain activities, like driving through Manassas or Centreville traffic, due to your back pain? Does your back pain hinder daily tasks? If you answered “yes” to either, then it’s time to make an appointment with a chiropractor.
Getting the Treatment You Need to Kiss Back Pain Goodbye
Next Dr. Lininger explains how his office treats patients who have tried different types of treatments before coming to him to manage their lower back pain. He also discusses the different types of treatments that failed to work for these patients, and the therapies his office can use to help with the different reasons for lower back pain.
Dr. Lininger goes on to explain what patients can expect from a chiropractor that might not be found in a traditional medical facility, like a primary care facility, family doctor, or even a back pain specialist, including which professional is best suited to treat different types of health problems.
Manassas Chiropractic & Rehab works hand-in-hand with many of the medical professionals in Manassas and the surrounding areas. What’s holding you back from asking for a referral so you receive the best of both types of treatment?
The episode wraps up with Dr. Lininger explaining how orthopedics comes into play, including situations where broken bones are reasons for lower back pain.
