Chiropractic Treatment of Back Pain

Is your back giving you trouble again?

Long hours at work, heavy lifting and age are just a few of the reasons why your back hurts so much. However, if the problem doesn’t subside after a few days of rest or medicine then we recommend you to visit a chiropractor.

Why Should You Take Back Pain Seriously?

Pain in general is like a warning sign from your body. It usually indicates that something went wrong in our system somewhere. In terms of back pain, the cause of concern is usually our spine. This kind of discomfort stops the central nervous system (CNS) from working properly.

That’s why frequent backaches and prolonged pain should never be ignored!

What are some of the usual causes of back pain? Undue pressure on the spinal nerves, tensed or fatigued muscles, spinal disc damage , arthritic changes or structural issues in the spinal cord may result in back pain. They might be caused due to:
  • Accidents/injuries that had an impact on the back
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Constant strain to the lower/upper back due to bad posture
  • Age-related factors like osteoporosis and arthritis
  • Disc-related diseases like sciatica
  • Hormonal imbalance during pregnancy
  • Genetic diseases Basically, anything and everything that puts a strain on your nerves/vertebral bones can trigger back pain.
Now, most of you might think that ‘sleeping it off’ will probably fix the back pain. Your self-medication and home remedies only suppress the problem. Chiropractic works on finding the cause of your problem and making corrections or recommendations to correct or help.
