Let us help you discover the root cause of your pain and get you back on your feet again!
Lower back pain and leg pain may be tied to:
An irritation or problem with any of these pieces can cause lower back pain. The pain from the accompanying muscle spasms can be severe. Pain from any number of syndromes can become chronic.
If a nerve in the neck or low back is irritated, it often sends a signal down the leg and continues to cause pain until the irritation is relieved. Then the nerve heals and the pain goes away.
Bones, discs or muscles can compress nerves in the low back, resulting in low back pain or leg pain.
Lower back pain is all too common, but the causes, symptoms and severity are wide-ranging. A simple muscle strain might force you to the emergency room while a degenerating disc may only cause mild, sporadic discomfort.

Once we determine what is creating the problem, through a comprehensive exam, we can treat the cause of the pain. Spinal decompression and spinal manipulation are common treatments for lower back pain and leg pain. Physical conditioning and cold laser will also help to increase healing and decrease inflammation. Proper alignment of your body’s musculoskeletal structure is key to reducing pain; paying particular attention to the spine allows the body to heal itself.
Many times, lower back pain and leg pain are the result of a mechanical malfunction in the body — misalignment, tightness, movement is wrong. Restoring function to joints and realignment are highly successful for pain relief and a much wiser solution than covering up the pain with drugs.
Manipulation restores mobility, even if the tissue wasn’t damaged by injury. If your lower back is sore simply by sitting without proper support, we can help.
