Lower Back Pain FAQs

Our team at East West Chiropractic in Groton offers a wide range of services that will address your symptoms and treat your lower back pain. Dr. Deveau and Dr. Shipper have gathered some of the questions we run into regarding lower back pain and how chiropractic care can help.


What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain can be caused by any number of factors from sports to your weight. Injuries and lifestyle factors can also play a role. Lower back pain can also be caused by sciatica, stress, and hormonal imbalances. A lot of this pain is due to sprains or strains in the muscles and ligaments. The causes of back pain are different for everybody.

How Does a Chiropractor Diagnose Back Pain?

We will perform a thorough examination before creating a treatment plan that is designed to reduce your pain and support the healing process. We have several modalities that we can use to treat lower back pain. If the problem is chronic, there could be an underlying issue that will need attention from our doctor. We treat the source of the issue directly instead of merely treating the symptoms.

What Chiropractic Treatments Are There for Back Pain?

Back pain is treated by our chiropractors in a number of ways. We will always use an individualized treatment plan. We may start with manipulations known as the Cox Technique to support your overall back health.

If there are any issues, the Cox Technique will work to correct them, and move your bones and tissues back into the correct positions. This may not improve your back pain immediately, but it will help you to move more normally in time. This approach will help your lower back pain in the long term.

We also use non-surgical spinal decompression to alleviate back pain caused by a pinched nerve or a herniated disc. Additionally, we offer physiotherapy, massage therapy, and some corrective techniques for exercise that can treat your back pain. Massage therapy and other therapies involving the soft tissues can relieve your pain by reducing inflammation and increasing circulation to the damaged tissue. This increased circulation helps get vital nutrients to the injured areas to encourage the recovery process.
