Lower Back Pain FAQ with Dr. Brennan

What are the most common causes of lower back pain?

Lower back pain affects 60% to 80% of the adult population in our country. Most lower back pain, which can range widely in intensity, is caused by musculoskeletal issues, such as herniated discs, muscular strains, ligamentous sprains, and skeletal joint dysfunction. Pain may be acute or chronic, and start suddenly as the result of an accident or injury or develop gradually from poor posture or wear and tear.

How Long Before Lower Back Pain Heals?

Acute pain can be resolved within 2-4 weeks, while chronic, long term pain can take weeks or months depending on many factors.

Is Walking Good For Lower Back Pain?

As long as walking does not increase the pain, it is an excellent first phase of the rehabilitation process.
Walking strengthens the muscles that support your spine, while increasing flexibility and blood flow and it helps to flush toxins out of your lower back.

How Should I Sleep With Lower Back Pain?

There is no one right answer to this question, but it is usually best to avoid sleeping on the stomach, better choices are side lying with a pillow between your knees or on your back.

It’s important to find the position that’s most comfortable for you. To help you find that position here are five that Dr. Brennan recommends patients to try for a restful night sleep even with lower back pain.

  • Sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees
  • Sleep on your side in the fetal position
  • Sleep on your stomach with a pillow under your abdomen
  • Sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees
  • Sleep on your back in a reclined position

What is Dr. Brennan’s approach to treat lower back pain?

Dr. Brennan offers individualized treatment programs for every patient. He uses both traditional treatments, as well as advanced technology treatments. Most often a combination of approaches is implemented. Among these are: spinal decompression therapy, MLS Laser Therapy, manual adjustments, or adjustments aided by the revolutionary computerized Ultralign Adjusting system.*

How does spinal decompression therapy work?

Spinal decompression therapy involves gentle, mechanical stretching of the spine to literally relieve pressure on the spinal discs. Spinal discs are the round, rubbery cushioning pads sandwiched between each of the spine’s 24 vertebrae and are designed to act as shock absorbers for the back. Decompression is a safe and highly effective treatment for neck and lower back pain.*

How does MLS Laser Therapy work?

This advanced, game-changing technology utilizes dual wavelengths of infrared light energy that penetrate the skin deeply into the affected tissue, muscles, and nerves. The energy stimulates circulation, lymphatic drainage, and a metabolic reaction at the cellular level. The overall benefit is a reduction of swelling, inflammation and pain and the activation of soft tissue repair. MLS Laser Therapy is safe, non-invasive, pain-free, and can effectively alleviate lower back pain without any side effects or downtime.* Often Dr. Brennan uses MLS Laser Therapy in conjunction with spinal decompression to achieve optimal results.
