Back Pain in Falls Church & Mosaic District

Common causes of low back pain include the following:

  1. Sprain/Strain injuries are commonly associated with improper lifting. A sprain occurs with stretching or tearing of the ligaments and a strain can result from stretched or torn tendons. A sprain/strain in the lumbar spine causes low back pain that can be treated conservatively with chiropractic care at Rosa Family Chiropractic - Falls Church in Falls Church & Mosaic District for several weeks. Medical doctors usually manage the patient\'s pain with pain relievers and muscle relaxers.
  2. Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) can appear with normal aging and is less commonly due to trauma. In DDD, the disc loses its elasticity which leads to stiffness and low back pain. Chiropractic treatment has been proven effective in the treatment of DDD. Some medical doctors will prescribe OTC pain killers and muscle relaxers for pain relief. In severe cases, Epidural Steroid injections maybe helpful in decreasing pain.
  3. Herniated discs can apply pressure on spinal nerves leading to low back pain and in some cases numbness or weakness in the lower extremities. Most cases respond well to chiropractic, physical therapy, pain medications, muscle relaxers and Epidural Steroid injections. Surgery is the last resort to remove a portion of the herniated disc material.
  4. Sciatica is a term used to describe compression of the sciatic nerve leading to sharp pain radiating to the leg causing numbness and tingling. At times the patient can experience weakness in the affected leg. Treatment with chiropractic adjustments at Rosa Family Chiropractic - Falls Church is very effective. Medical doctors may prescribe pain relievers and muscle relaxers for a short time.
