Lower back pain often occurs from lifting a heavy object, a sudden movement, a sports injury, or poor posture. You can suffer a lower back sprain or strain suddenly, or you can develop them gradually from repetitive motions.
While sprains and strains don’t sound severe and don't typically cause long-lasting pain, the acute pain can severely impact your daily life.
A torn or pulled muscle is often to blame for your pain, causing you to experience an assortment of symptoms.
You may complain of a dull, aching pain that stays in the same place on your lower back, or you may experience pain that shoots down your buttocks, legs, and feet. You might find some relief from your lower back pain if you change positions, or it might be at its worst when you wake up.
Regardless of what your symptoms are being able to describe them can help Dr. Worley accurately diagnosis the cause of your specific pain and come up with an effective treatment plan.
Flexion distraction is a non-surgical treatment that Dr. Worley uses to treat many spine conditions that cause pain in your lower back.
It’s a chiropractic technique that uses a unique table to increase your spine's mobility while resolving disc bulges and herniations. It also helps to treat back pain from pregnancy, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and other conditions.
Because flexion distraction is a conservative option for fixing herniated discs, you don’t have to deal with the burden of undergoing invasive surgery. Flexion distraction is a safe and gentle procedure that takes pressure off of your spinal nerves that are causing you trouble.
Flexion distraction uses an automated table that distracts and flexes your spine in a gentle, rhythmic motion.
The stretching expands the space between the bones in your spine, reducing the pressure on your spinal nerves. As a result, your spine can move naturally, increasing your spinal motion and alleviating your pain in the process.
Flexion distraction can also help arthritis, and substitute for physical therapy for older patients.
