What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain impacts millions of people worldwide and is a serious health issue. Back pain can come from many sources and is typically either acute or chronic pain. Acute pain is usually the result of an injury or a measurable event. These injuries impact the hard or soft tissues in the back and can take the form of a tear, sprain, strain, or fracture. Chronic pain is usually the result of a disease or a condition. Chronic back pain can be gradual and aching and worsen with time. Some common diseases and conditions that cause low back pain include osteoporosis, arthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
If you are suffering from back pain, chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive option for treatment. Chiropractic care focuses on putting the muscular and skeletal system into alignment. When the body is in harmony, the joints, muscles, and bones are free to move unhindered. Chiropractic care can take many forms and usually includes manual manipulation, heat therapy, or massage therapy. To determine the proper treatment for you, our chiropractor may need X-Rays or MRIs. We will refer you elsewhere for these tests.
Sometimes, to help cure back pain, orthopedic care is needed. Orthopedic care examines the bones and soft tissues in the back, including the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Our orthopedic expert will perform a full body examination to determine what is causing your pain. Orthopedic care can take the form of physical therapy, medical massages, or in extreme or severe injuries, orthopedic surgery. We also offer ultrasound guided injections, trigger point injections, and platelet-rich plasma injections to help with pain.
