Common Causes for Lower Back Pain: Pinched Nerves, Sciatica & More
At our chiropractic clinic, Dr. McHone can offer treatment programs for common causes of lower back pain that include trigger points, accidents and sports injuries, arthritis, obesity, poor posture, stress and several conditions directly related to the lower spine that often lead to pain in the area. Those conditions include subluxations, or a misalignment of bones in the spine, herniated discs, which are bulging or ruptured discs, and sprains, strains and muscle spasms.
Sprains, strains and spasms are often caused by overworking the ligaments and muscles in the area which can result in pain, swelling and tightness due to small tears in the tissues. Subluxations and herniated discs can lead to the pinched nerves that cause sciatica, hip pain and leg pain in addition to pain in the lower back.
A misaligned spine is a common cause for back pain as the misaligned vertebrae can be pressing down on nerves. A pinched nerve can result in sciatica, hip pain and leg pain, all of which our chiropractor in Austin, Dr. McHone has effectively treated.
Studies of patients suffering from pain over eight weeks for their first episode of low back pain indicates the pain will most likely persist for over a year. (See Pain, 1997; 73:213-21)
Our chiropractor has developed a gentle, effective system to restore normal function to the spine and relieve pain.

Treatment For Back Pain Relief in Austin
The initial appointment begins with a comprehensive, in-depth examination, a detailed history of the injury or condition, functional testing if needed and evaluation. Dr. McHone utilizes these assessment tools to pinpoint the cause of the pain or discomfort, and then determine the course and method of treatment.
The techniques Dr. McHone employs are designed to adjust the spine and correct the underlying problem by using the proper adjustment method. Adjustments are one of the most common treatments for lower back pain in Austin that can often result in immediate relief and an eradication of related symptoms.
Adjustments are effective because they realign the spine which, in turn, relieves pressure on nerves that may have been causing sciatica, hip pain and leg pain.
For lower back pain patients, once Dr. McHone has been able to alleviate the pain through specific adjustments, he may design a custom strengthening program to improve the core muscle group. The core muscles help support the upper and lower back and a strong core can minimize the recurrence of lower back pain.
