Lower Back Pain
what causes it?
Lower back pain is one of the most common conditions we see in patients at both our Eden Prairie and Eagan clinics. In fact, low back pain is one of the most common conditions treated in any medical facility and is the number one cause of disability in the United States. Back pain can be due to a number of different causes and treatment can be very complicated. The cause of back pain is often multifactorial, the sports chiropractors at Premier Sports and Spine Center have specialized training to properly diagnose the structural AND the functional cause of lower back pain. The chiropractors also have advanced training in various treatment therapies in order to address an individual’s specific needs for their back pain.

What should I do about my backache?
Research has shown that most back pain will go away on its own within 10-14 days. If you have had any kind of backache longer than that, it is probably time to get your back evaluated by a sports chiropractor. As with any condition, the first and most important step is the initial examination. The sports chiropractors at Premier Sports and Spine Center will take the time to fully assess your condition to help identify the cause of your pain. This will include a thorough history and orthopedic/neurological testing to help rule out disc injuries, as well as a functional exam to identify muscle imbalances that can lead to pain.
Lower Back Pain Treatment
The treatment therapies utilized at our Eden Prairie and Eagan clinics extends well beyond traditional chiropractic. The traditional chiropractic adjustment has been shown to provide back pain relief for certain types of back pain, but becomes dramatically more effective when it is used in combination with other techniques. At Premier Sports and Spine Center, patients receive an individualized combination of techniques such as soft tissue myofascial release, cross-friction massage, dry needling, kinesio tape, and rehabilitation exercises. This gives our patients the best chance of becoming pain free as quickly as possible and staying that way.
