Common Causes of Lower Back Pain
If you have ever experienced lower back pain, then you know how it can negatively impact your life. You’re not alone! One of the top reasons patients seek out chiropractic care is for relief from lower back pain. Low back pain can present itself for many reasons. These days, many of us spend a large portion of our day sitting. Sitting without proper posture can increase low back pain and potentially cause an injury over time. Those who sit during the workday are not the only ones at risk. People who work manual labor jobs are also likely to experience lower back pain or an injury at some point (or multiple times) in their life. Lifting heavy objects improperly is a common cause of low back injuries. Jobs that require prolonged periods of standing also create a risk for low back injuries. People may experience constant pain or discomfort, and some may have flare-ups from time to time. Regardless of the intensity or frequency of the pain, chiropractic care is a viable option for treating these symptoms and getting to the root of the cause of the discomfort.

“Three words describe the team – Caring, passionate and successful. Dr. Wall took me in when I was walking crooked, couldn’t stand upright, and was in excruciating pain. With a week to go before I was at my best friend’s wedding, I didn’t think there was any way I could stand (let alone dance) but he took me in and adjusted his treatment plan to successfully get me out on the dance floor. My pain levels went from 9s and 8s to 4s and 5s within that week (and got me on the dance floor)!
Every time I enter the office, I am greeted by name and with smiles. I would recommend Dr. Wall to anyone who has pain. I’m an active
