Back Pain

What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can be caused by several different conditions or injuries. Back pain can be caused by an acute injury, which happens suddenly. This can be the result of a fall, sports injury, or automobile accident. Common back pain injuries can include a fracture, sprain or strain, or possibly whiplash. Certain conditions can also lead to injuries, such as degenerative conditions that worsen as people age. A perfect example of a degenerative condition is a ruptured or herniated disc in the spine. Furthermore, chronic conditions can lead to back pain. Some conditions that commonly cause people to experience back pain are arthritis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis, or osteoarthritis.

What Are Signs and Symptoms of Back Pain?

The biggest sign of back pain is to have any degree of pain when you are bending, twisting, or moving. This can be anything from a dull ache to a stabbing and sharp pain. Other symptoms that commonly accompany back pain include numbness and tingling which can be felt either in the spine and neck or in the outer extremities. People also commonly report feeling more clumsy than usual, or they trip more frequently.

How Our Chiropractor Helps Back Pain

Our chiropractor can help with many common back injuries and conditions. Our chiropractor restores balance to the body by putting the muscular and skeletal systems in harmony with one another. Back pain treatment can take on many forms, depending on the individual patient and the specific injury. For some, manual manipulation can help ease pain and heal the injury. For others, a regiment of physical therapy to help strengthen and stretch the muscles will help. Still, some treatment will require medical massage, heat therapy, or electric stimulation to help heal the injury. It is possible to use just one treatment method or combine several treatment methods to find a back treatment plan that works.
