When to See a Chiropractor for Low Back Pain

Hi everybody, Dr. Kinney here, your chiropractor for low back pain in Belmar, NJ.

Many people asked me like, when do I know I have to get help for my low back pain?

Like, when is it time to go and see somebody for my low back pain? I always just kind of wait to see if it goes away?

Well, I can tell you a couple things.

Often low back pain is a recurring type of situation. You have certain episodes. Patients will tell me: it goes out, and then I’m down for a week.

And then it comes, you know, and then it goes away.

But if the episodes start happening more commonly. Or they start happening more frequently, where you’re down for a couple days and can’t do anything, then that’s when you really need to see a chiropractor for your lower back problem.

Because those episodes, typically the, the time in between the episodes gets smaller and smaller and smaller, that’s when it’s time because then once it gets to the point, you’re gonna literally like the straw, right?

Where eventually the episodes come on, and then it doesn’t go away. And then it could be a real bigger problem to try to correct.

The other way, the other thing that I think is important to know is if you have lower back pain, and you know, you’d like to try to give it some time on your own to go away, maybe you ice it or you’re doing something just simple.

If it’s not going away by 5, 6, 7 days, you need to see a chiropractor.

You need to see somebody for the lower back pain, because it’s not getting better on its own with ice and the things the home remedies that you do.

It could be something worse that needs to be treated by a professional. Alright, hope that helps.

See you soon.
