Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can have various causes, from mechanical issues to underlying medical conditions. It is a common ailment that can affect people of all ages and lifestyles. Back pain can result from muscle tension, poor posture, inflammation, and stress. Usually, people experience back pain when involved in vehicular accidents due to the impact of a crash. In addition, these symptoms can occur if you try to carry an item too bulky or heavy. Understanding the potential causes of back pain is essential for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
Back Injury Prevention
Protecting yourself against back pain is important if you know where an injury can occur. If you sit for long durations, get up and walk around every hour or so. Use a lumbar support pillow at your desk or in your vehicle if you sit. Always use a back brace if you need to lift something that can cause you to pull out your back, or alternately, have someone help you. Make it a priority to be aware of your stature and keep your shoulders back and your back straight as you walk or sit.
What to Expect with Our Practice
When you make an appointment with our chiropractor, you will first have a complete evaluation to determine the extent of your injury. In most cases, our chiropractor will perform a chiropractic adjustment to reduce stress on the spine. This often provides an immediate reduction of pain. A massage therapy session also helps relax your body and remove aches and pains around the spine and joints surrounding it. Our chiropractor will conduct this session in the comfort of our facility.
