How chiropractic can help my lower back pain

The foundation to an effective treatment is identifying exactly what is causing your pain. It’s frustrating when you get lower back pain and tough it out until the pain disappears, only to find the pain return. The way we break this cycle is to treat the root cause of your pain and stop the pain for good. Going through a comprehensive history of your lower back pain and a thorough physical examination (functional, orthopaedic and neurological) will identify the reason why you are in pain.
