Low Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
Did you know that up to 70% of people in the United States will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives?
While back pain certainly feels more common as we get older, many people wrongly believe that aches and pains are a normal part of aging.
There’s nothing normal about back pain and it won’t disappear on its own. Dr. Michael Irhin at Commons Chiropractic Center in Denville can help you find a natural solution so you can live your life pain-free.
Getting to the Source of Low Back Pain
When we’re young, our vertebrae are flexible and resilient.
Years of poor posture, chemical exposure, mental stress, repetitive motions, and workplace injuries all lead to weak or imbalanced spinal musculature. These vertebral imbalances are known in the chiropractic world as “subluxations.”
In most cases, you won’t even notice a subluxation (or several) until it progresses to a herniated or bulging disc and pinches a nerve. When that happens, you’ll definitely notice the low back pain and other symptoms like sciatica.
Dr. Irhin understands that each patient is unique. He’ll work with you to identify the root cause of your spinal imbalances.

Next, you and Dr. Irhin will work together to develop a personalized treatment plan. Depending on your specific injury, this may include gentle spinal manipulation and chiropractic adjustments to restore range of motion, reduce nerve irritation, and strengthen lower back muscles.
