Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a pervasive issue that affects over 540 million people globally. The condition can stem from a variety of causes, including injuries, poor posture, incorrect lifting technique, herniated spinal discs, degenerative conditions, stenosis, osteoarthritis and facet joint dysfunction, among others. Unfortunately, many sufferers turn to invasive procedures and dangerous medications in an attempt to relieve their symptoms; however, the majority of such treatments are nothing more than a temporary bandage, at best.

Did you know your Nerve System is made up of 94km of nerves, only about 10% of your nerves can feel pain, so purely looking to suppress the symptom doesn’t seem to be the best case scenario for improvement or healing. It would be similar to waiting for a sore tooth to appear before you started to brush them. We take better care of our dental health, then we do our SPINE that Protects all of our delicate nerves.

At Revolution Chiropractic, we do things differently. If you imagine your spine like a house, we are the engineers. We aim to focus on a natural, structural and corrective approach to provide significant, lasting relief. Through in-depth, neurostructural evaluation and targeted spinal corrections, Dr. Mark Illguth gradually brings the body back into proper alignment, restores normal functioning and alleviates both acute and chronic lower back pain, by restoring healthier spinal joint function, improving nerve system function and allowing the body to heal.

What to Expect With Lower Back Pain Treatment

Your lower back contains a complex network of nerves, muscles, spinal joints and discs. These major nerves branch off the spinal cord and provide sensation and function to the lower half of your body. When lower back pain takes hold, your entire body suffers as its structural support and neural network become significantly compromised. That’s why, at Revolution Chiropractic, the first step in finding relief is a comprehensive neurostructural exam.

During your exam, we’ll thoroughly analyse your spine to locate structural abnormalities using a variety of assessment techniques. We’ll discuss your symptoms, history and daily activities, which allows us to make the most in-depth diagnosis possible. You’ll also have ample opportunity to speak with the doctor about any questions or concerns you may have regarding any aspect of Structural care, what you have been told in the past, what other options have been presented and a logical answr based on the most current research available.

Once we’ve gathered all the necessary information, we’ll formulate a custom plan of care designed to correct existing structural abnormalities and provide lasting pain relief, by restong joint function, nerve function and structural correction of your spine within normal limits is the goal.

At your followup appointment, you’ll meet with the doctor to review your exam results and discuss where to from here and the . Throughout your scheduled visits, the doctor will provide ongoing analysis of your spine and make the appropriate corrections based on your progress. After each appointment, you’ll also perform structural rehabilitative exercises to encourage further healing.

Health Benefits of Lower Back Pain Treatment

Your lower back is designed to provide structural support, strength and flexibility for your entire trunk and upper body. It functions to keep your body upright and allows you to bend and move in a variety of directions. Lower back issues, however, often make normal movement painfully difficult.
If you struggle with lower back problems, corrective chiropractic care offer the following benefits:

Pain relief due to restoring structural alignment, improving spinal function
When the lower portion of the spine moves out of proper alignment, it creates unnecessary tension in the surrounding muscles and ligaments that support the structure, much like a house losing its foundation. This tension overtime can eventually result in persistent discomfort with movement and even painful muscle spasms and cramps.

Misaligned vertebrae can also place excessive pressure on the delicate nerves that stem from the spinal column, these nerves control things from organ function, strength in your legs, balance and movement, if left unchecked pain can travel throughout other areas of the body, such as the buttocks and lower legs.

As we gradually correct your abnormal structural shifts, we restore healthier joint biomechanics (alignment), unobstruct the nerves and therefore can relieve tension on overstressed muscles and alleviate pressure on compressed nerves, which elicits healing, better function and as the side effect of dealing with the primary condition the secondary issues like pain also lessens.

Mobility Improvements
When your spine experiences abnormal structural shifts, you often unknowingly compensate for the changes by altering your normal movement patterns. Over time, these alterations can result in reduced flexibility, decreased performance, loss of energy, muscle pain with movement, and a reduced ability to perform daily tasks. Through corrective adjustments and rehabilitative exercises, we restore proper spinal alignment, which encourages the reintegration of normal movement patterns and improvements in mobility, function and quality of life.

Improved Range of Motion
Lower back pain often reduces range of motion by preventing sufferers from bending, twisting and performing a variety of other necessary movements. Many people are not aware that their range of motion and spinal flexibility is lessening until it produces a symptom, by this time the spine has been under structural misalignment and stress for up to many years, so basing your health off how you feel instead of how you function won’t lead to As we gradually correct your spinal structure and guide you through tailored rehabilitative routines, we aim to restore structural health to your spine, mobility, flexibility which leads to relieving the discomfort that limits your range of motion while simultaneously strengthening your lower back.

Common Symptoms Associated With Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is, as the name suggests, associated with pain or discomfort in the lower portion of the back. However, there are several symptoms associated with the condition that do not present as pain. If you experience any of the following symptoms (secondary problems due to the primary structrual abnormality), corrective chiropractic care can help:

  • Loss of coordination or balance
  • Muscle stiffness in the lower or mid-back
  • Numbness or tingling in one or both lower limbs
  • Muscular knots
  • Stiffness or decreased range of motion in the neck
  • Weakness of the legs or feet
  • Knee issue/foot troubles
  • Swelling of the lower back

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Corrective chiropractic adjustments at our Miami, Queensland clinic provide an effective protocol for improving posture by dealing with the underlying spinal structural alignment and restoring proper function to the spine. Improved structural support helps to improve range of motion, improve flexibility, decrease risk of injury and increase performance as well as relieve the muscle strain and discomfort that often results from poor posture.

Because we have a thorough NeuroStructural assessment, our Chiropractic doctors can assess whether your problem is spine and nerve related or do we need to refer you to someone else. Our goal through our assessment is to ensure you are in the right place to get the care that you need, if we can help you, we will explain what is required so that you understand the complete picture.

If we cannot help, we will help to find you someone who can so that we do not waste your time, or money. What can be happening is that the pain, tingling or numbness in your lower extremities is a hallmark sign of sciatica, which occurs when the sciatic nerve that branches off your lower spine becomes compressed or irritated. Through gentle structural corrections, we bring your lower spine back into proper alignment, which relieves the compression on the sciatic nerve root. When the nerve is able to function normally, it stops transmitting pain signals to your brain.
