Back Pain Q&A

What causes low back pain?

Low back pain can be brought on by many factors, including:


Some of the most common injuries resulting in back pain involve strains, sprains, joint dysfunction, disc injuries, car accidents, and sports injuries. 

Improper use

Low back pain and other types of pain, like neck pain and headaches, can be caused by muscles and tissues misused, resulting in injuries over time.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction

With SI joint dysfunction, you may feel a sharp pain in your lower back when standing up from a seated position. This pain might shoot through your hip, buttock, or down the back of your thigh. These symptoms could be degenerative hip disease, hip bursitis, lumbar disc herniation, or a pinched nerve. It could also mean SI joint dysfunction is causing your pain.

Various chiropractic techniques can be beneficial in treating lower back pain caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

What are some treatments for SI joint and lower back pain?

If you’re experiencing SI joint pain and back pain, your Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center might recommend:

  • Gentle chiropractic techniques (such as traction, flexion-distraction, etc.)
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Muscle strengthening
  • Adjunctive Therapy

Spinal manipulation for the SI joint is both evidence-based and safe and is generally considered a first-line treatment for this condition. 

Chiropractic adjustments can give you pain relief and help you get back to being active again.
