What Causes Back Pain?
There are many potential causes of back pain. Many are muscle-related and related to poor spinal health. Both issues related to the back muscles and the spine can be treated with the help of a chiropractor. However, it's important to understand the root cause of your pain to get the most effective care.
Some of the most common causes of back pain related to muscles include strained or sprained back muscles, overuse injuries due to physical labor or sports, or previous accidents such as car accidents. When it comes to spinal health, other factors come into play. For instance, if you're older, osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disorder can cause back pain. Other common issues include a misaligned spine, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and bulging or herniated discs.
Do I Need Help From a Chiropractor?
Due to there being many causes for back pain, it's important to have a chiropractor properly diagnose the root cause of your pain. Chiropractors are trained in understanding the relationship between the musculoskeletal system. They will conduct a physical exam and determine which types of treatment will help alleviate your symptoms.
These chiropractic treatments can include massages to reduce inflammation and promote healing in strained or sprained back muscles. Electrical stimulation and soundwave therapy can also help soothe sore back muscles. Gentle adjustments of the spine and spinal decompression are other types of chiropractic techniques that can alleviate pain due to poor spinal health.
