Low Back Pain Treatment-Lakewood

There are many different causes of lower back pain. Pain in the lower back can be due to repetitive stress on back muscles and joints from poor posture or certain activities, or as the result of more chronic conditions such as arthritis. Back pain can affect children, adults, and seniors. Diagnosing the exact cause of low back pain requires careful attention to the soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back, as well as the quality of the movement of the lower and upper extremities.

Sciatica / Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve or sciatica is characterized by pain down the leg and can continue below the knee. Sciatica pain can be caused by a disc herniation or a slipped disc. Tingling, numbness, or pain in the buttocks and thigh is often misdiagnosed as sciatica.

Sciatica is often characterized by one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg (rarely in both legs)
  • Pain that is worse when sitting
  • Leg pain that is often described as burning, tingling, or searing (versus a dull ache)
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg, foot, and/or toes
  • A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or walk
  • Pain that radiates down the leg and possibly into the foot and toes (it rarely occurs only in the foot)

Sciatic pain can vary from infrequent and irritating to constant and incapacitating. Symptoms are usually based on the location of the pinched nerve.

Sciatica

Lumbar Disc Herniations

This painful lower back condition can occur from the acute strain of lifting a heavy object or as a slowly evolving condition over time. Herniated disc symptoms include deep lower back pain, sharp pain in the buttocks, hamstring pain, and/or leg pain. You may have difficulty changing positions or sitting comfortably for more than a few minutes at a time.

Sacroiliac Pain / Sacroiliac Joint Disease

With this condition careful attention must be paid to the surrounding soft tissue structures of the pelvis and lower back. Issues in these areas can prevent movement within the joint and cause nerve entrapments within the ligaments.

Degenerative Joint / Disc Disease

Chronic in nature, these conditions develop over time and can affect everyone from competitive athletes to more sedentary office workers. Though they most often develop in the 5th decade of life, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease can also start in the teenage years and affect men and women equally.

Arthritis

In the cervical spine, the facet joints can degenerate and lead to arthritis. As this area degenerates, new bone is laid down and causes bone spurs. These bone spurs can pinch nerves, limit joint range of motion, and strain supporting neck muscles. Arthritis neck pain is usually worse first thing in the morning and improves as the day goes on. Arthritis pain is often between the shoulder blades and can cause headaches.

Sacroiliac Pain / Sacroiliac Joint Disease

With this condition careful attention must be paid to the surrounding soft tissue structures of the sacroiliac joints and lower back. Issues in these areas can prevent movement within the joint and cause nerve entrapments within the ligaments.

Spondylolisthesis

Treatment of spondylolisthesis is designed to reduce pressure on the lower back. We will reduce the spasm the condition with trigger point therapy, fascial manipulation, and electric muscle stimulation to eliminate the strain on the muscles that support the spine. We use a highly specific approach of Cox Flexion distraction technique to reduce vertebrae pressure. Learn more

Lumbar Stenosis / Spinal Stenosis

This painful lower back condition can occur from the acute strain of lifting a heavy object or as a slowly evolving condition over time. Herniated disc symptoms include deep lower back pain, sharp pain in the buttocks, hamstring pain, and/or leg pain. Once lumbar stenosis has been diagnosed through MRI, the integrity and stability of the spine will be evaluated along with your movement patterns.

Lumbar Disc Bulge

This painful lower back condition can occur from the acute strain of lifting a heavy object or as a slowly evolving condition over time. Herniated disc symptoms include deep lower back pain, sharp pain in the buttocks, hamstring pain, and/or leg pain. You may have difficulty changing positions or sitting comfortably for more than a few minutes at a time.

When to Seek Chiropractic Care For Low Back Pain

  • Intense and sudden back pain that does not subside with rest
  • Pain that feels better when you lie down or are walking, but worsens when standing or sitting
  • Intense pain going from a sitting position to a standing position
  • Sharp, shooting pain in the lower back
  • Difficulty putting on your shoes or socks
  • Pain in the buttocks and/or legs
  • Weakness, Numbness or tingling in the lower back or leg
  • Pain when you cough or sneeze
  • Difficulty getting in and out of a car/vehicle
  • Severe or shooting pain in one leg, making it difficult to stand up or walk


Home Care For Low Back Pain

  • Stay Hydrated-Drinking plenty of water is good for general health, and the back and spine are no exceptions. After all, your intervertebral discs are mostly made up of water. Skip the cola, though. Over time, it can lead to lower bone mass density.
  • Alternate heat and ice. Cold therapy is the go-to treatment for the first 24 to 72 hours after an episode of back pain. After that, heat is often advised. If your back pain is chronic, try alternating heat and ice to see if you may benefit from the best of both.
  • Rethinking Your Sleep position may also help. Sleeping on your back is the ideal position for your back, but if you're more comfortable on your side, put a pillow between your knees. If you can't get to sleep unless you sleep on your stomach, use a fairly flat pillow for your head and put another flat pillow under your abdomen or pelvis.
  • Don't just sit there. Moving around keeps the blood flowing, reducing stiffness. If you're sitting at a desk most of the day, try to slip outside for a quick walk over your lunch break—or climb some stairs. Getting up and standing or stretching every 30 minutes or so will also help you stay more flexible.

"I'm a 34 y.o. Pharmacist for Walgreens and I highly recommend Dr. Jumper."

I'm a 34 y.o. Pharmacist for Walgreens and I highly recommend Dr. Jumper. I was experiencing lower back pain that was radiated upwards and causing additional upper back discomfort. I stand all day, sometimes up to 12 hour shifts. I was having to sit down or lean on the counter for over half of my shift, I was in so much pain. Dr. Jumper quickly identified the problem, and within just a few weeks, I felt a noticeable change - and could in fact stand for my whole shift. Thanks again Dr. Jumper!! - Nate H. PharmD

"My family doctor and my then chiropractor all suggested surgery"

"My family doctor and my then chiropractor all suggested surgery which I strongly opposed. My daughter suggested I see Dr. Jumper. I was skeptical, but desperate. He immediately took X-Rays and explained my diagnosis which was far worse than just a bulging disc. He told me what he could do for me and I that I would not be in need surgery. Three weeks of treatment with Dr. Jumper and my pain went from a 10 to a 2. I could walk, swim and stand without consequence. I was and am still amazed. I will need additional treatment to get my hips and spine straight, but he assures me of no surgery and that I will be skiing and back bike riding in no time. Finally, a doctor who actually cares about his patients and is deeply concerned for there recovery. Thank you Dr. Jumper."

“I would visit different chiropractors”


I have dealt with back pain on and off for several years. When the pain would flair up, I would visit different chiropractors until the pain was gone. On the recommendation of family members I visited Dr. Jumper. The pain was quickly alleviated and I have continued to work with Dr. Jumper to fix the root of the problem. This is the longest I have gone without back pain in quite some time and I feel great. I would strongly recommend Dr. Jumper!!

Sciatica & Lower Back Pain
“He told me he could help me and HE DID!”

Just a note of appreciation and satisfaction with Dr. Jumper and staff at Renew Chiropractic. I started seeing Dr. Jumper some months after suffering from a severe case of sciatica that just didn't want to go away completely. It was always there just waiting for me to turn or bend the wrong way. I had a vacation planned that would mean 4 hours sitting on a plane, of which I was very anxious, to say the least. After taking x-rays and explaining to me those results, he told me he could help me and HE DID! HOORAY! My lower back AND my neck (of which I had issues with also) are so much more healthier than when I first went in to Renew Chiropractic. My back pain is virtually gone along with the neck pain, of which I'm extremely grateful. I would highly recommend a visit to Dr. Jumper to see what he can do for you too.
