Back pain can strike out of nowhere. When it does, the pain will usually last less than two months (acute pain), or it can continue indefinitely (chronic). Unlike many health conditions where doctors cannot trace the origin of the condition, we can identify the cause of back pain immediately and provide treatment. Health issues that are commonly linked to back pain include:
Muscle or Ligament Stress
If you subject your back to repeated heaving lifting or sudden movements, you could strain your back muscles and ligaments along the spine. The ongoing strain on the back is acute if you are in poor physical shape. Heavy lifting can lead to excruciating muscle spasms.
Discs provide a buffer between the vertebrae along your spine. When intense pressure is applied to the discs, they can bulge or rupture causing stress on a nerve. A bulging or ruptured disc can go unnoticed because it doesn’t always produce back pain.
Many of our clients have arthritis along the lower back. Arthritis can lead to several other problems that we can correct with spinal decompression and other forms of back pain treatment. If you have arthritis or spinal stenosis, visit our clinic to find out your options for easing your back pain.
Scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine, develops in children and carries over into adulthood. Our chiropractic care service is designed to realign your joints. Although the procedure does not cure the condition, it does help relieve severe back pain caused by spine curves. Our patients notice a significant difference in how they feel.
Osteoporosis is similar to arthritis. The bones and joints become porous and brittle over time. As they weaken, it adds pressure to the vertebrae. Eventually, compressions fractures will. A chiropractic adjustment can relieve the back pain and neck pain that you may feel from osteoporosis.
If you sit in an office or work at a job that causes you to remain in poor posture over long periods, your back may feel the strain. We provide lower back pain treatment to the site of the pain that exists from incorrect positioning or ongoing back tension. Although we can correct the problem, we recommend that you practice healthy posturing when sitting or standing for long hours.
Car accidents, slips and falls, and sudden impact can cause injury or trauma to the upper and lower back regions. If you experience ongoing discomfort, a Bomberg chiropractor can provide relief as your body recovers from trauma.
