Freedom from Back Pain with Chiropractic Care
Overview

Most people suffer from mild back pain from time to time and it is a common problem that can affect people of any age. It may be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly or lifting incorrectly.

Is back pain normal?
Pain is a sign from your body that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since our bodies can adapt to pain, some may choose to ignore a symptom and try to wait for it to go away on its own. While minor pain may go away, eventually it will worsen and become more difficult and expensive to resolve.

Causes of Back Pain

Muscle or ligament strains: Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement can strain back muscles and spinal ligaments.

Bulging or ruptured discs: The soft material inside the disc of the bones (vertebrae) can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve.

Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. In some cases, arthritis in the spine can lead to a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord, a condition called spinal stenosis.

Skeletal irregularities: A condition in which the spine curves to the side (scoliosis) also can lead to back pain but generally not until middle age.

Osteoporosis: The spine’s vertebrae can develop compression fractures if the bones become porous and brittle.
