What Causes My Back Pain?

There are many issues that might cause your pain, but they typically fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Joint Dysfunction: Joint dysfunction is a term used when spinal vertebra fail to move properly and become fixated. When this occurs, undue pressure is placed on the other spinal components and generally contributes to the next three causes.
  2. Disc issues: Disc issues refer to any problem in which the disc has been damaged, weakened, worn, or flattened. This includes bulging discs, herniated discs, slipped discs and most commonly; degenerative disc disease.
  3. Soft tissue injuries: Muscle tension is commonly a source of pain, as are sprains, strains, adhesions, trigger points, and scar tissue.
  4. Nerve compression: Joint dysfunction and herniated discs often lead to the nerves of the spinal column becoming “pinched.”

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain

Each of the categories above can be effectively treated through comprehensive chiropractic care. The following are some of the most common methods used:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: restore normal joint motion and relieve pressure from the other spinal column components
  • Therapeutic ultrasound, Interferential and cold laser therapies: state-of-the-art technologies which penetrate soft tissues to break up tension, scar tissue, adhesions, and trigger points while increasing blood circulation, decreasing inflammation, and stimulating natural healing
  • Spinal decompression: a non-surgical modality using sophisticated, computerized technology to reduce pressure on spinal nerves from intervertebral discs, which are the cushions in-between vertebrae.
  • Medical Massage therapy: relieves tension, improves range of motion, increases circulation, and more,
