What Causes Back Pain?
The back is designed to provide strength and support to the body while also being flexible enough to allow you to perform a vast array of tasks each day. The back is in motion and at work all day. This is one of the reasons why back pain is common.
Back pain can result from several things, and it can manifest in several ways. Back pain can result from:
- Overuse of back muscles
- Strain to back muscles
- Misalignment of the spine
- Ruptured discs in the spine
- Pinched nerves
- Nerve damage/pain
Back pain can also vary in severity and type of manifestation. Your back pain may present as:

Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractic care is a great way to deal with pain issues naturally. Mainstream medicine often simply treats symptoms alone and will treat those symptoms with pain medications. Many of these pain medications have harsh side effects as well as addictive properties. If you are looking for a natural, drug-free treatment option, our chiropractor can help.
The most common type of chiropractic treatment is spinal manipulation. During spinal manipulation, the doctor will bring the vertebrae of the spine back into alignment. When this alignment is achieved it can help to restore the flow of energy, oxygen, and nutrients through the spinal column.
These adjustments can also help to relieve inflammation in the joints. When the spinal column is not properly aligned, it can produce stress on the other joints of the body. This stress will then manifest as inflammation and that inflammation is painful. Bringing the spine back into alignment relieves that stress and thus reduces inflammation.
Our chiropractor can also help you increase flexibility, which is crucial to reducing the instances of muscle strain.
What Should I Expect When I Visit the Chiropractor?
At your first consultation, your health will be evaluated. If necessary, the doctor may perform x-rays as part of your diagnostics. This will help to pinpoint what is causing your pain. After this, a specialized treatment plan will be developed for you.
