In Virginia Beach,Virginia Dr. Maggio is a practicing chiropractor and has been in practice since 1995. Over this time he has treated patients for many different conditions but typically low back, neck pain, arthritis, disc issues and headaches.
There are many causes of low back pain. This article will discuss the areas of the back that can have pain. Tendons, muscles, discs, and nerves can all either cause pain or affect sensitive nerves which will indirectly cause pain.
The irritation or problem in any of these structures can cause lower back pain to radiate into the leg or other parts of the body. A simple muscle strain may be excruciating enough to necessitate an emergency room visit while a chronic degenerative disc may cause only mild symptoms.
When having back pain it is always important to determine which area of the back is actually causing the pain and to see if you have a simple or a complicated case, which has not yet become fully symptomatic. If you have a chronic case that is not yet fully symptomatic getting it handled while it is a smaller problem is always a great idea.
Chiropractors do a great job at diagnosing back problems before they become out of control. That is why the success rate of chiropractic care on lower back pain is highest among all medical providers.
