As you get older, your joints and your spinal disks and bones take on more stress. This normal wear and tear on your spine causes most lower back pain.
The most prevalent direct causes of lower back pain are sprains and strains. The overstretching or tearing of ligaments in the back can lead to sprains, while strains are tears in the tendons or muscles.

Dr. Allam provides many different types of spinal adjustments with varying techniques to give you relief and help treat your lower back pain. The techniques vary by how much-controlled force Dr. Allam applies to subluxations or misalignments, he finds in your spine. The procedures help regain and fully restore range of motion.
Dr. Allam works with each patient, taking into account medical history, symptoms, examinations, and imaging tests to determine what type of chiropractic adjustments are right for them. Pain medication, as well as therapeutic stretching and exercise, can also help alleviate and cure lower back pain.
You can often prevent lower back pain if you pay close attention to how you stand, sit, and move. Proper body mechanics help you avoid movements that put pressure on and strain the back. Also, ergonomically designed furniture in your home and workplace can greatly lessen your risk of developing lower back pain.
