Back Pain

Our approach to lower back pain and sciatica is to locate the underlying cause. This begins with a complete consultation, x-rays (if necessary), and a thorough chiropractic, orthopedic, physical, and neurological examination from a chiropractic physician. This is followed up with a prescribed treatment of care.


During treatment for a lower back injury, our experts suggest several precautions that will allow you to heal faster and prevent a recurrence of the injury:

  • Do absolutely no lifting until your chiropractor says you may resume such activities.
  • When lying down, assume any position that will afford relief. As you improve, your chiropractor will instruct you as to the proper position for your particular type of back problem.
  • Take a mild natural laxative, if needed, so that you will not need to strain when having a bowel movement.
  • Frequently stand and walk for short periods of time, as directed. Avoid the sitting position, as this puts the greatest strain on the lower back, even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time.
  • Avoid soft chairs. Use a straight-backed chair, and sit as erect as possible. Do not sit for prolonged periods until your physician has given you permission to do so.
  • Avoid walking up or down stairs, and do not walk on rough ground.
  • To get out of bed, turn onto your good side, draw your knees up, and push yourself into a sitting position using your arms. Then, place your feet on the floor and your hands on your thighs, and stand up, allowing your back to assume its most comfortable position.
  • Do not use heat on your back unless your chiropractor has prescribed it. He or she will tell you how to use it if heat is needed at all.
  • Do not bend forward to put on trousers, socks, shoes, etc. When bending, do so with the knees bent. Do not bend from the waist.
