Causes of Back Pain

The back plays a major role in how the body moves and functions. It’s akin to a tree trunk that supports multiple branches and allows you to perform a variety of movements. Repetitive movements, impacts, and inactivity can all lead to issues such as back pain and sciatica. The major cause of back pain is misaligned vertebrae that result from an injury or making the same movement repeatedly. Once the back is out of alignment, it’s difficult to resolve the issue on your own, even if you rest and use pain relievers.

The most common causes of back pain include:

• Lack of strength

• Stress

• Repetitive motions

• Sedentary lifestyle

• Age

• Arthritis

• Deteriorating spinal discs

• Accidents

• Sports injuries

All of these issues put stress on the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and vertebrae. Overdoing an activity, loss of condition, and sudden impact can all contribute to back pain, and it can also affect other areas of your body. Undergoing chiropractic treatment can help you get relief from chronic back pain.

How Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain

Chiropractic care consists of more than just undergoing spinal manipulation to decompress and restore the alignment of your spine. It also involves taking a holistic approach that has you engaging in exercises at home, changing how you move, and finding ways to improve your movement to avoid a reoccurrence of the issue. The chiropractor evaluates your issue, creates a treatment plan for immediate and future treatment, and adjusts the plan as needed. The goal is to adjust the treatment as you improve and get you to a state where you’re free from pain.
