Lower Back Pain Treatment in Beaverton

Lower back pain comes in more forms, and springs from more potential causes, than you might realize. Acute lower back pain is often associated with a recent injury. Dr. Cantwell sees many patients who have been involved in auto accidents, workplace accidents and personal accidents in the home. A collision with another vehicle or a bad fall can dislodge lumbar vertebrae and the discs that cushion them, pushing the vertebral joints out of alignment. A heavy-lifting mishap can herniate lumbar discs, stretch ligaments and tear tendons and muscles. But you can also develop lower back pain gradually through chronic spinal alignment problems and overuse injuries that stress the large muscles that support the back. Even the simple process of getting older can lead to lower back pain due to bulging discs, arthritic spinal joints and pinching of spinal nerve tissue due to spondylolisthesis or stenosis.

Dr. Cantwell also sees many cases of lower back pain that include referred pain to other parts of the body. This is especially common in the case of herniated lumbar discs that pinch the sciatic nerve. The resulting sciatica is characterized by leg pain as well as lower back pain.

Achieving Pain Relief the Healthy, Natural Way

Dr. Cantwell and her associates can relieve not only your lower back pain but also your concerns over surgery, since many cases can be resolved purely through conservative means. Dr. Cantwell's spinal adjustments (using the time-tested Diversified Technique) can restore the vertebrae, spinal joints and discs to their proper positions, allowing for normal motion and taking the squeeze off your sciatic nerve roots. Our chiropractor in Beaverton may also refer you to our LMT, Jim Freda, for massage therapy to loosen tight back muscles, speed injury healing and provide natural soft tissue pain relief. If chronic lower back pain or a recent accident has left you emotionally distraught (and thus even more sensitive to pain signals), you may benefit from the services of our counselor, Brian Dement. Working together, we can help you achieve lasting pain relief.
