Learn more about the types of back pain and how we use chiropractic care for healing back injuries.
Types of Back Pain
When you have back pain, it is typically located in the lower back pain in the lumbar region or upper cervical spine pain. Your back pain could be in the muscles of the back or in the vertebrae of the spine. Often times if you have a spinal injury or herniated disc, this leads to inflammation in the spinal tissue.
This tissue then presses against nerves surrounding the spine, which leads to nerve pain and loss of mobility of the limbs. Sciatic nerve pain is another form of lower back pain, which is caused when soft tissue presses against the sciatic nerve in the lumbar region. Another type of back pain is related to pregnancy. Expecting mothers experience a rapid weight gain and shifting of the internal organs. When this happens it often leads to lumbar back pain.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by disc issues, such as a herniated disc or slipped disc. Muscle strain in the back is another cause for back pain and loss of mobility. If you have poor posture or are overweight, this can lead to back pain because your musculoskeletal system is improperly aligned when engaged in daily activities.
Along the same lines, repetitive use injuries, which include lifting heavy objects repeatedly or wearing a heavy backpack, can lead to chronic pain in the back. Other causes of back pain include injuries, such as a work-related injury, sports injury, or car accident injury.
Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain
Fortunately, back pain can be successfully treated using chiropractic care. We start by performing a comprehensive examination and using diagnostic x-rays as needed to get at the source of the back pain. If you are pregnant, we use gentle chiropractic care and corrective exercises to help you naturally resolve your back pain.
Other types of back pain can generally be corrected manually using the Gonstead technique. Once your back pain has subsided, we will help you with lifestyle advice and corrective exercises to ensure that the injury causing pain does not reoccur.
