What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can stem from numerous causes ranging from mild strain to chronic conditions. Some of the most frequent causes of back pain include:

  • Muscle strains or sprains
  • Disc herniation
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sciatica
  • Poor posture
  • Arthritis
  • Improper lifting techniques

Regardless of the origin of your back pain, chiropractic care can be a valuable tool for finding relief and preventing future problems.

Why Should I See a Chiropractor for Back Pain?

Chiropractic care is adept at treating injuries or conditions involving the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Misalignments in the spine and surrounding joints often contribute to back pain and dysfunction throughout the body. You can experience chronic pain and discomfort if your misalignments are left untreated. Our chiropractor will assess your spine and review your medical history to determine the underlying cause of your pain. Once identified, our chiropractor will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

How Can a Chiropractor Treat My Back Pain?

Our chiropractor offers several services to address back pain. Our chiropractor may recommend one or more of the following treatments based on the cause and severity of your back pain:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Gentle force applied to the spine to restore proper alignment. Doing this improves pain, mobility, and musculoskeletal function.
  • Cold laser therapy: Utilizes low-level lasers to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Massage therapy: Helps to relax muscles, improve circulation, and reduce pain.
  • Spinal decompression: Creates a gentle distraction force to decompress spinal discs and alleviate pressure on nerves.
  • Nutritional counseling: Can identify dietary deficiencies that may be contributing to back pain and recommend a plan to optimize your nutrition for healing.
  • Therapeutic stretches and exercises: Strengthening core muscles and improving flexibility can help stabilize the spine and prevent future pain.
