Back Pain Q&A

What causes back pain?

Back pain often begins when you pull a muscle during daily activities like lifting a heavy box or starting a new activity. You could also suffer a traumatic back injury during a car accident, fall, or athletics.

However, back pain can also develop gradually over weeks or months of repeating the same movements. Constant stress on the same spinal structures leads to wear-and-tear, inflammation, and small soft tissue tears.

Degenerative changes occur as you get older, causing chronic back pain due to conditions such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Bone spurs
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Slipped vertebrae (spondylolisthesis)

These conditions frequently add to your pain and cause other symptoms when they pinch the spinal nerves.

What symptoms accompany back pain?

You might experience constant back pain or pain that comes and goes depending on your activities. Some struggle with sharp, severe pain; others have dull, aching pain.

Pinched nerves cause pain, tingling, and burning along the entire nerve. As a result, a compressed nerve in your lower back may lead to symptoms in your legs.

Sciatica (caused by a pinched sciatic nerve in your lower back) sends sudden, excruciating pain down one leg. Severe nerve damage may lead to numbness and muscle weakness in your leg.

How is back pain treated?

The Repair Recover Restore team specializes in relieving back pain by healing the source of the problem. They complete a thorough physical exam, evaluating the structures in your spine and symptoms, before recommending a treatment plan.

Their comprehensive approach focuses on easing your immediate pain while promoting healing for long-lasting back pain relief.

Spinal manipulation is an essential chiropractic treatment for back pain. As your chiropractor realigns the spinal structures, blood flow increases and boosts your body’s natural healing process.

The Repair Recover Restore team is skilled in many chiropractic techniques and therapies, allowing them to create a personalized treatment plan. Your back care may include any of the following:

  • Physical therapy
  • Manual soft tissue therapy
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)
  • Massage therapy
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Posture training
  • Acupuncture
  • Supplements

Chiropractic care can help even if your back pain persists after conventional medical treatments. Call Repair Recover Restore or book a consultation online today to start your journey toward wellness.
