How Doctors Diagnose Lower Back Pain
Your local chiropractor needs to take your medical history and ask questions about your lifestyle. We need to know about your level of activity, the quality of your sleep (and what mattress you use and what side you sleep on). Your chiropractor will also check your posture. At Matthews Family Chiropractic, we perform a thorough examination that includes evaluating your current range of motion and level of pain. Then, we will devise a personalized treatment roadmap to bring you relief. Options include manual manipulation of your spine with thrusts that vary in force and speed to best relieve your discomfort. We can also provide massage therapy to improve blood flow to your back to hasten the healing process. Finally, we will help you learn how to avoid getting lower back pain in the future.
