Back Pain

You’re Not Alone When it Comes to Back Pain

Back pain is the second leading reason for a visit to the doctor’s office worldwide with as many as 80% of people experiencing a back pain episode at some point in their lives. Improper posture, sitting, lifting, and reaching combined with the normal wear and tear of an active life and work create the perfect recipe for lower back pain.

Back pain can be caused by many things including strained muscles, inflamed or misaligned joints, disc herniation/bulging, and arthritis. All of these causes put pressure on the spinal nerves resulting in varying degrees of pain and functional problems.

Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to examine and diagnose the cause of the pain using a case history, physical exam, x-ray, MRI, and other test results. Once the cause is diagnosed, then the proper treatment can be delivered to reduce the pressure on the nerves.
