Details about the Lumbar Region of the Spine

Chiropractic can be a difficult topic to understand, with all the medical terms, and machines. The nice people at Integrated Spinal Solutions put this page together, to explain in easy to understand language, everything you need to know about the lumbar region of the spine.

If you are experiencing pain in the low back, or if pain is shooting down the legs, you may have issues with your lumbar. Don't wait for it to "go away". You may be making things worse.

All About the Lumbar Vertebrae

Backaches are not part of aging; it's usually a sign of wear and tear on the lower vertebrae. Every moment, gravity is pulling down on your spine. This powerful force, and all your weight rests on your lumbar region. Cervical Spine

The lumbar area of the spine contains five large bones, named the L-1 - L-5. There are also tendons, and muscles that hold everything in place, and lots of nerves that run down through the legs. Sometimes the lumbar vertebrae are compressed together, by injury, or just everyday life, and when this happens, nerves have a tendency to get pinched, which causes terrible pain. If you are experiencing shooting pains in your back or a strange numbness or tingling in the legs, or feet; contact a chiropractic doctor for an examination, and possible decompression treatment.

Most patients who get treatment in the lumbar region are suffering from a herniated disc. This is when the bone slips a little forward, or backward, or it may be stuck on one side. Spinal decompression is used in situations like this to relieve the pressure on the lumbar, and stop the pain associated with its compression.

Increasing Flexibility

You should be able to bend over without having pain. You should also be able to twist side to side with any pain. If you cannot, there is something wrong with your lumbar region. An in-house x-ray takes all the guess work out of the process. Once we see for a fact you're having issues with your lumbar we treat the area with decompression and other chiropractic techniques over a 3-6 week period.

Talk to your chiropractor about low back pain, and what you can do to fix it. You don't have to take pain meds for the rest of your life. We may be able to relieve your pain without surgery, or medication. If you have been scheduled for back surgery, contact Reno Chiropractic Clinic for the next available appointment.
