Low Back Pain

At least 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time. This back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sharp pain that makes it difficult to perform daily activities. The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles and when one of these characteristics becomes injured or herniated, some pain will develop. Fortunately, Dr. Phillip Kim, DC at Premier Health Center P.C. specializes in back pain relief and offers a wide variety of treatment options to help you lead a pain-free life.

Symptoms of low back pain are pretty standard. If you have difficulty moving, walking, or standing because of a severe aching pain in your lumbar spine, we recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss your treatment options. Common causes of low back pain include lumbar strain, nerve irritation from a herniated disc, or an underlying condition that affects the bone and joints such as arthritis. Treatment for back pain depends on what kind of pain you have. Acute back pain usually heals itself through spinal manipulation while chronic back pain may require a little more attention.
