Lower Back Pain - Rosa Family Chiropractic of Alexandria, VA

Unless lower back pain begins after a direct trauma to the painful region, a thorough chiropractic evaluation will often reveal that your lower back pain originates from another part of the body.
Before lower back pain is usually noticed, the feet, knees and hips have already misaligned.  As chiropractors, we receive professional training to assess the patient as a whole, and not just focus on one area.

At Rosa Family Chiropractic of Alexandria in Virginia, which is located at 4875 Eisenhower Avenue Suite 215 Alexandria, VA 22304, chiropractor Dr. Jasmine Bradley will examine the patient to determine the cause of their complaint. As a result, Dr. Bradley will evaluate the biomechanics of the patient and assess how well the body is functioning.

The spinal column is supported by a bone called the sacrum, which connects to both hip joints in the back of the pelvis, which in turn has attachment sites for the lower extremity. The lower extremity endures much stress and many daily micro-traumas, due to its weight-bearing purpose. As a result, when we walk, our feet bear the impact blows of heel-strikes and toe-offs, during the gait cycle, throughout the day. With this being said, the bones of the feet often misalign from the daily traumatic impact of walking. This cycle continues to migrate upward into the knees, if the feet have not been corrected by chiropractic adjustments. At times, a person may describe their knee as \"achy\", \"having some discomfort\", or \"not having any pain at all\". Next, to be assessed are the pelvis and joints of the hip, also known as the sacro-iliac joints, as these are the last osseous structures that often misalign before progressing into complaints of lower back pain.

In addition to the areas discussed above, the soft tissues and ligaments will also be evaluated to determine the best and most effective methods to treat the patient, in order to help the body to restore its proper function and ranges of motion.

Dr. Jasmine Bradley will conduct a thorough chiropractic exam to determine the cause of the problem. A proper chiropractic evaluation will permit Dr. Bradley to provide specific adjustments for the areas to be treated. With the aim of maintaining your chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises will be prescribed in order to strengthen the muscles and stabilize the other structures surrounding the adjusted areas. Dr. Bradley will also discuss diet and nutrition and how it vitally contributes to overall health and wellness.
