Lower Back Pain, Lower Back, Back Pain, Back Ache, Pinched Nerve, Numbness, Tingling, Sciatica Pain Relief, Sciatica Lower back pain is a common condition in today’s world. One may hope that it will go away on its own and not need any further treatment than rest. In rare cases, that may happen. However, it is more-than-likely to occur again at some point in the future if the cause of it is not addressed. What may be the reason for the pain a person is experiencing?
Why Lower Back Pain Occurs
- Lumbar disc herniation – Between each vertebra lie sponge-like discs that keep them from grinding against one another. When one of these discs slips out of place, it results in a herniated disc.
- Facet Joint Osteoarthritis – Facet joints are located on the back side of your spine and consist of two surfaces similar to bone that have cartilage in between them. The cartilage and fluid allow joints to move and not hurt. Facet joint arthritis occurs when the cartilage wears down.

- Isthmic Spondylolisthesis – This is a fracture of the spine brought about by the bone that connects the vertebra to the one underneath it. In this case, the vertebra may slip forward.
- Degenerative disc disease – This is a wearing down of the discs in the back. It can be due to major trauma, such as a vehicle accident, or can come about with age.
How to Find Relief for Lower Back Pain
At Back in Balance, we understand how back pain can actually be caused by a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. The pain is often related to an imbalance of a person’s posture trying to compensate for the head not being properly balanced on the body. This can be a result of a recent or past injury to the head or neck. We can examine the neck to find if a misalignment exists and then work at correcting it. We use a gentle procedure that does not involve popping or twisting the spine but does correct the problem.
