What are the guidelines for your lower back pain?

For low back pain, clinical guidelines have included spinal manipulative therapy. Currently, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) embraces two sets of guidelines: the American College of Physician (ACP) Guidelines (2017) and the Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) (2016). In general, both sets of guidelines offer pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical recommendations for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain.

Spinal manipulation is listed as a front-line treatment for all stages of low back pain. In addition to manipulative therapy, the guidelines note there is evidence that other non-pharmacological therapies may benefit the low back patient. These guidelines include general exercise, rehabilitation exercise, acupuncture, motor control exercise, laser therapy, yoga, progressive relaxation,  and cognitive behavioral therapy.

So, if you are experiencing back pain, lower back pain, or pain in the coccyx and type in pain management near me or chiropractor near me, you may find Coast Chiropractic Centers with Dr. Timothy Harcourt, me, comes up. 

You may wonder, “Do I need an MRI scan of my back and who in my area can refer me?”

Also, if you feel leg pain it may indicate things are getting worse and may indicate a bulge on the disc or worse yet a herniated disc in your back.  Some people will try stretching the lower back first to see if they get relief from their back pain.  Pain very low in the lower back may be originating from the coccyx or tailbone.  A pulled muscle in the back generally will get better with rest.  Persistent or worsening pain intensity and/or frequency necessitates a visit to see a professional around you.
