Back pain can be debilitating and impact every aspect of day to day life. If you suffer from back pain, even the simplest movements can become painful. Many common back injuries and conditions that cause back pain can easily be fixed with routine chiropractic care. An expert chiropractic office, such as Sharratt Chiropractic, can help evaluate and administer treatment to help get you feeling your best again.
Common Back Pain Injuries
There are several different types of injury that can cause back pain. Most commonly, people suffer minor sprains and strains of the muscles and soft tissues within the back. A strain results when the muscles or tissues are extended past the normal range of motion. Another common back injury is a fracture. There are many bones which make up the spine. These bones are delicate and become fractured from accidents or falls. Stress fractures are also quite common and can cause varying levels of back pain. Disc injuries are also common. Spinal discs cushion each vertebra of the spine. Whether they bulge or completely herniate, spinal discs are subject to wear and tear just like the rest of the body.
Common Back Conditions
Chronic conditions and diseases can also cause back pain. The most common chronic condition is arthritis. This is a degenerative disease that is found in joints and typically impacts people more as they age. Arthritis can be very painful and can limit normal movements. Another condition that can be quite serious is spinal stenosis. This is when the channel that holds the spinal cord begins to narrow and pinch the nerves within. As time progresses, pain, numbness, and even paralysis can result.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
A chiropractor focuses on nervous system function and its relationship to the vertebrae and soft tissues surrounding the spine. If the body is out of alignment, it can be causing undue stress and pressure on spinal nerves. A chiropractor has many techniques at his or her disposal to help reduce back pain and restore normal nerve function so the body can once again heal itself and function at its best. A chiropractor may use manual manipulation, massage therapy, ultrasound, or strengthening and stretching techniques. Depending on your individual needs and the root cause of back pain, a chiropractor may suggest one, or several, techniques to help improve or eliminate your pain.
