When you put too much pressure on the muscles and ligaments in your lower back, you can end up with sprains or strains. This causes back pain that can make your usual activities awkward or uncomfortable to do. At NuView Health Medical in NYC, we offer chiropractic care, physical therapy and other treatment options to help you recover from these back problems.
Stretching or pulling your muscles too much or too far can cause them to tear, which results in muscle strain. When you stretch your ligaments too much, this can also cause tears, leading to sprains. Working out or playing sports, especially when you twist and turn your back frequently, can cause you to sprain or strain your lower back. Rough contact sports, such as football, are another common cause of these injuries. You can also get sprains or strains through overuse if you perform tasks that put a lot of pressure on your lower back.
When you have a sprain or strain in your lower back, the most common sign is soreness in the affected area. You might also have some swelling or stiffness that affects your range of motion. The pain that strains and sprains cause can become worse when you move your back certain ways.
At NuView Health Medical near Rockefeller Center, our NYC chiropractor offers adjustments that can help ease pain from sprains and strains in your lower back. These spinal adjustments straighten your spine, relieving pressure on nerves and speeding up the healing process. Our chiropractic doctor might recommend physical therapy along with spinal adjustments, which helps improve back muscle strength and flexibility to lower your risk of additional sprains and strains.
If you have lower back pain from sprains or strains, contact NuView Health Medical to make an appointment with our Manhattan chiropractor. We offer spinal adjustments and other nonsurgical treatments for pain relief, including back and neck pain.
We look forward to hearing from you
