Back pain can show up in various forms, as it can come from various causes. Some people find they only have mild stiffness, while others struggle with back pain so intense they are required to miss work or are unable to complete routine tasks.

What Some Back Pain Causes?

Back pain may be caused by:

  • Strained Back Muscles/Strained Ligaments - A strained back muscle can create mild to intense back pain plus stiffness that limits the range of motion.
  • Disc Problems - The discs that separate the vertebrae help cushion and keep the spine flexible and mobile. However, if they bulge, herniate, or become misaligned due to age, injury, or trauma, they may cause back pain.
  • Osteoarthritis - A degenerative joint disease that happens naturally from the aging process. Osteoarthritis can potentially impact any of the body joints.
  • Spinal Stenosis - Spinal stenosis may compress the nerves, creating various levels of pain, numbness, etc.
  • Osteoporosis - This medical condition causes the bones to become weak, brittle, and vulnerable to breakage or fracture.
  • Skeletal Issues - Scoliosis and other abnormal spinal curvatures may cause pain.

What Are Some Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain Relief?

Back pain does not have to disrupt your daily routine. A chiropractor has different non-invasive treatment options and complementary therapies such as:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments/Manipulations.
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Laser Therapy
  • Electric Stimulation Therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercises

Why Choose Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is both non-invasive and non-addictive meaning there is no risk in becoming addicted like you can with certain painkillers and unlike surgery does not have long recovery times.
