What are the causes and symptoms of lower back pain?
Lower back pain, whether acute or chronic, is what most people will experience at some point in their life. Sometimes there is no specific problem or disease that can be identified as the cause of the pain. In that case, the low back pain is mechanical due to a muscular or Vertebral subluxation causing localizes irritation to the nerve root. The severity of the pain can range from mild to severe. Other causes of low back pain can be more complex and they include pinched nerves, Herniated discs, Sciatica, and Arthritis.
Where do we get Pinched Nerves, Sciatica, Bulging or herniated Discs?
A pinched nerve, Sciatica and Herniated Discs all accur at the spine level. They happen at the nerve root at one or more of the joints in the spinal column. According to Dr. Rashad Trabulsi, one of the leading chiropractors at Manhattan Wellness Group, “if you have a pinched nerve in your neck, it will affect the nerves and the muscles down the arm and into the hand. If you have a pinched nerve in the lower back, then the pain can travel down the leg and affect the muscles in the hip and into the foot”. Dr. Trabulsi goes on to say “what if the nerves get pinched at the Mid Back area due to our posture or injury? that could then affect the function of our organs in the torso like the heart or liver”. It’s why Dr. Trabulsi recommends regular Chiropractic care and proper spinal hygiene to help release the pinched nerve in your neck or lower back and also to help total body health and function through a free operating nervous system.

Integrative Chiropractic treatments at Manhattan Wellness Group

Dr. Rashad Trabulsi has been able to requite and partner with an amazing group of doctors and therapist that put the patient first and work in synergy together to achieve the best results. Here are some of our treatment options and specialties.
Medical Pain Management may include anti-inflammatory non-steroid or steroid medications/injections. Advanced procedures like the cervical epidural, lumbar epidural, nerve blocking, facet blocking, or nerve blasting can also be performed if needed. Our Medical group also utilizes in some cases PRP therapy for regenerative and GH platelet rich injection into the area.
Family Chiropractic care could include nutritional and dietary modification, spinal manipulation, traction, and alignment to the spine to release pressure on the nerve root affected and increase the motion at the joint level for a healthier Disc which gets most of its nutrients through movement. Electric stimulation with heat is used as well as laser therapy to stimulate cellular activity for a faster recovery.
Acupuncture to control the pain and stimulate all the acupoints associated with the nerve entrapment. Acupuncture also promotes blood circulation and endorphin release to ease the pain. Cupping is also used to pool the blood and cause micro blood vessel breakage that caused a healing response and GH attached platelets to the area speeding recovery in the process.
Physical Therapy to stretch and strengthen the area affected, nerve flossing, targeted pre-modulated electric stimulation with ultrasound in combination through a specialized probe targeting the disc and nerve root area. This will help patients regain flexibility, strength, and mobility and reduce inflammation.
Massage Therapy to release muscle spasm, and trpts along the full pathway of the effected nerve down the arm or legs. To help release entrapments or cause activation type techniques to non responsive muscles.
