Common Causes of Back Pain

A skilled chiropractor not only understands the common causes of back pain but also know a plethora of methods for returning function and relieving pain.

The most common causes of back pain include:

  • Joint dysfunction like sacroiliac dysfunction
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Degenerative disc disease (often a part of normal aging)
  • A curvature of the Spine (deformity)
  • Injury due to an accident such a vehicular accident or slip and fall
  • Several forms of spinal arthritis including osteoarthritis

How a Chiropractor Can Help

A chiropractor focuses on issues with the musculoskeletal system and CNS (central nervous system). The proven techniques they use are non-invasive – unlike surgery – and do not utilize habit-forming pain medications. In order to assess what back-pain treatment regimen will work best for your specific needs, the chiropractor will perform a number of steps, such as:

  • Taking an oral medical, familial, and social history
  • Physical examination of the back
  • Neurological examination for responsiveness and other nerve functions
  • Diagnostic imaging as needed to get a clearer look at the structures of the back

Back Pain Treatment options

The treatment plan that your doctor comes up with will likely utilize a number of proven techniques. These should relieve back pain, prevent further injury, and/or restore function. These benefits are achieved through the release of built-up pressure on the CNS via the nerve roots located within the spine.

To reach this end, the doctor will use one or more proven techniques like:

  • Mobilization which involves the movement, manipulation, and stretching of the muscles and joints to relieve pain caused by tension and compression
  • Low force manual spinal manipulation
  • Massage therapy
  • Corrective stretching exercises
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Release methods such as the Graston Technique & Active Release Technique
