What Causes Back Pain?

Your back is a complex mechanism, featuring an array of soft tissue which includes muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerve, and disc. There are infinite ways to injure or overuse any number of these components. When you do, you will begin to notice problems.

The spine and back are part of a complicated structure that can be disrupted by sports injury or overuse injury, degenerative arthritis, excess weight, nerve compression, aging, and bone loss. Daily routine can cause long-term wear and tear on the back through repetitive movements, poor posture or ergonomics, and sustained strenuous activity. These are just a few of the many causes of back pain.

Treatment for Back Pain

A chiropractic adjustment is one form of treatment we offer. Chiropractic adjustments are not universal to all, but customized to your exact needs. . The term “adjustment” means the physical manipulation of the lower back, upper back, neck, and other parts. The goal is to adjust everything back into proper placement and function.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments other treatments may be utilized. Sometimes, spinal flexion is a part of this. Spinal stretching and strengthening is an essential and integral part of back pain treatment options. This approach supports the spine by relaxing the muscles in spasm and strengthening the muscles that are weakened. Along with chiropractic adjustments sometimes nutritional support is required to allow proper healing and recovery. Your rate of recovery will be short but very effective. In other words, you can expect your treatment options to include a variety of elements, not just one single approach. We want you feeling better immediately.
