Low Back Pain

If you have been experiencing low back pain consistently, finding treatment so that it does not cause you distress is a must. Give us a call at Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma to make an appointment with our chiropractor for an assessment of your condition. Our practice provides pain relief without the need for medication. Instead, we use proven, natural treatments like massage therapy, spinal adjustments, and other treatment options.


Why Low Back Pain Occurs

There are many reasons why a person may suffer from lower back pain. It is often the result of lifting something that weighs too much or constantly moving the body using repetitive movements. It can be the result of poor ergonomic practices in the workplace as well. Some people find that lower back pain intensifies when they engage in sports or other strenuous activities.

How to Relieve Back Pain at Home

If you have lower back pain, it is best to refrain from making movements that could cause the symptoms to become exacerbated. Instead, rest your body to see if the pain subsides. The application of heat can be soothing if you have lower back pain. Use a heating pad for up to twenty minutes to relieve pain as needed.

How to Avoid Lower Back Pain

If you know you need to lift something heavy, it is best to ask someone to help you or use back support to protect yourself from injury. When you engage in sports, make sure to take frequent breaks and stop the activity if you feel any pain or discomfort. Keep an ice pack on hand to apply to your body in case you do have an injury occur.

What Our Chiropractor Can Do to Help

If you make an appointment with our chiropractor because of lower back pain, you may wonder what different therapies will be used for your treatment. Many people find that massage therapy works well at relieving pain. Massage used upon the muscles around the lower back and spinal area will increase blood flow to the area, thereby promoting healing. In addition to massage, our chiropractor may use spinal adjustments to relieve lower back pain. Many people discover that pain subsides substantially after just one adjustment. You may need subsequent adjustments to ensure the problem goes away entirely.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I have been going to Discover Life Chiropractic for 5 years. I am an athlete who went in with low back pain and some knee issues. It did take time but to this day I do not have low back pain or knee pain as long as I am staying healthy with periodic adjustments. Dr. Dave knows his stuff and is attentive to concerns (if you are feeling something make sure you tell him). I feel so aligned and feel like I am functioning at a high level each day. If I can, I like to use Dr. Daves partnering doctor for extremity adjustments (feet, arms, legs) he is exceptional especially with those! Like with anything you have to be consistent, can't just go 3 times and expect to be healed. Hope this was helpful! Best, Alex

    So... I have had back pain all my life and neck pain from a car accident causing severe and frequent migraines. Other chiropractors just did a "quick fix" that lasted a couple days at most. This chiropractor, David, has practically eliminated my neck pain and migraines and my back pain had decreased tons. Now usually when I have pain it is because I have bad posture or I need to stretch or build up muscle to keep my spine in place. I understand he can only do so much but to be pain free you have to put in work also. WITH ALL THAT SAID, the pain has gone down from constant to occasional and from severe pain to mostly mild and we are still working on it. Would recommend the chiropractic service there to anyone.

    I have experienced fairly sever neck pain for the last few years. Have been to my doctor, had ultrasounds etc. Nothing was working. I started going to David at Discover life a few months ago as a last resort to deal with the pain and the difference is amazing even with just this short amount of time. He explains everything very clearly and even has me doing stretching and work while at home. His staff is great and always friendly when I come in. I would highly recommend Discover Life Chiropractic.
