[Low back pain relief and Chattanooga chiropractic] So, Dr. Todd, what can chiropractic care do
for back pain? Well, obviously chiropractic has been well known for relieving back pain
for thousands of people for many many decades. And, although chiropractic goes far deeper
than the back pain, uh, there’s several causes, you know, there can be musculature problems,
but in particular, when chiropractic is really gonna help is when we get into the joint problems
of the spine and the pelvis itself. So, the pelvis can mis-align, twist, rotate, get unlevel,
that can certainly cause low back pain. The vertebrae themselves can mis-align which can
affect the facet joints, and it can also cause disc problems that can cause severe low back
pain. So, as chiropractors, we look at the spine and the pelvis itself, and this is an
x-ray showing the sacrum, and then the individual vertebrae of the low back or the lumbar vertebrae
and then the discs in-between those vertebrae are in those spaces. And so we see right there
on this film a misalignment of the fifth lumbar. The bottom vertebrae is pushed back on the
sacrum and right here is where the nerve comes out. And so this is causing a disc problem
which can certainly cause irritation of the neural components in this area or of the nerve
itself. And as we know these nerves come out of the lower back and can even get down into
the leg and some people with low back pain can even have Sciatic type of pain down the
leg. But what we do in chiropractic is restore the function and restore the positioning of
these vertebrae, taking the pressure off of the nerve and allowing the body then to heal,
and to do exactly what it’s designed to do. And, while chiropractic is not designed for
relieving pain, it is designed to restore function. And as we restore function and get
things lined back up, then one of the great side effects of chiropractic is that we have
less pain or pain tends to diminish or go away. For more info or to schedule an appointment,
