Bolingbrook Chiroprcator Dr. Jeff of New Life Chiropractic has helped many patients with lower back pain naturally.

Ther are many causes of lower back pain and to know which is the cause can be very tricky.

A trained chiropractor will be able to tell if it is a muscle strain, a ligament sprain, a disc herniation or bulge, or a verterbral subluxation which can encompass all of the above.

A spinal subluxation a a vertebrae that twists or bends out of alignment due to damage to the muscles and ligaments thereby shifting off the disc causing either a disc bulge or herniation that then pinches the spianl nerve which can cause pain or cause problems with your organ function.

A chiropractor will perform an extensive hands on exam of your spine and then should take spinal xrays to determine if your spine is out of alignment.

The Great news is if your back pain is caused by a spinal subluxation then a chiropractor can correct  that problem with a series of adjsutments that does not involve surgery or medication!!
