Summer is finally here! Are you planning on visiting the beach or camping with your loved ones? This summer probably won’t be exactly what you’d originally had in mind with the pandemic still going, but you shouldn’t have to cancel all your fun plans as a result of chronic or sudden lower back pain. As a trusted chiropractor, Dr. Chad Wills can help stay you on the right track. By treating this problem early on this summer, you can spend more of your time enjoying family and friends and creating memories that last a lifetime.
Common Lower Back Issues
There are many things that can go wrong with your lower back. From strenuous yard work to carrying heavy supplies for a backyard barbeque, you can find yourself feeling more than just a little uncomfortable. Thankfully, our team at Wills Chiropractic offers treatment and relief.
Bulging or Herniated Disc
A pinched nerve from a bulging and herniated disc can leave you in debilitating pain. Although the healing process can take several visits and treatments, spinal decompression and other therapies can alleviate your discomfort and get you on the path toward recovery much sooner than no treatment at all.
Your lower and upper back are responsible for supporting your spine and basically every other muscle group in your body. When you routinely sit or stand with poor posture, these muscles can become strained or weak, causing painful spasms. Dr. Wills can show you exercises you can do both in the office and at home to keep these muscles loose, strong, and performing as they should.
If you’re experiencing pain or tingling in your legs or near the bottom of your spine, your sciatic nerve may be compressed. In addition to applying ice to the area to reduce inflammation, Dr. Wills can perform spinal adjustments and decompression therapy to establish healthy alignment and remove the cause of your sciatica.
Preventing Lower Back Issues
Many people think that a chiropractor can only help someone after they’re already suffering. However, you don’t have to be in severe pain to benefit from an adjustment. Visiting a chiropractor like Dr. Wills on a regular basis can also help you avoid future injury. In fact, these maintenance visits can provide the little adjustments needed to prevent major pain down the road.
When you look back on the summer of 2020, you’ll no doubt remember it in part because of COVID-19, but you can also remember it as a time when you and your family bonded by spending quality time together doing fun things. Whether you have back pain right now or you’re trying to avoid it, your chiropractor can ensure that you’re set to have an enjoyable summer!
