The exact cause of your low back pain can be hard to pinpoint. But, in many cases, it’s a result of:
Acute low back pain, meaning back pain that comes on suddenly, is often the result of an event that involves lifting, reaching, and twisting.
Dr. McCary not only treats the pain and discomfort associated with low back pain — he finds the root cause of your symptoms to provide long-term relief. Research shows that the manual therapies used by chiropractors such as Dr. McCary are effective in reducing pain and resolving issues such as a lumbar disc herniation.
Dr. McCary’s intention is to reduce your pain and improve your overall function, as well as to prevent low back pain from becoming chronic. He also seeks to educate you on how you can prevent future incidents of low back pain with exercise, ergonomics, and other lifestyle habits.
At your initial consultation, Dr. McCary reviews your symptoms, areas of pain, and activities that intensify or improve your condition. He also looks at your family history, dietary habits, occupation, exercise patterns, and any incidents that may have prompted your pain.
He performs a thorough physical exam of your spine and may test the function of surrounding muscles.
Dr. McCary may use spinal manipulation and manual manipulation to address your low back pain. This type of therapy involves high-velocity arm thrusts applied to any vertebra that is out of alignment. It reduces compression and irritation of associated nerves and improves overall range of motion in your back.
He may also employ low-velocity manipulation of your spine as well as stretching of the associated muscles and joints.
