Back Pain

Back pain is the number one reason people visit chiropractors. And back pain is all too common these days!

Two Common Causes

Back pain is usually caused by issues with one’s spine. For instance, a common cause of back pain is that the facet joints on your spinal bones aren’t moving correctly, therefore making your back ache. Another common cause? Sometimes the material in your spinal discs bulges out, putting pressure on nerves. This is kind of like a traffic jam on your body’s nervous system superhighway.

Your Choices

The smartest choice when you’ve got back pain is to visit a chiropractor. However, you could also “just live with it,” rest in bed a lot, take pills to mask the pain or, as a “last resort,” endure a surgery.

The Chiropractic Approach

Thanks to safe and natural chiropractic adjustments, your spine can be restored to its proper position, thereby helping your body heal itself!

Frequently Asked Questions

No, it’s not. Pain indicates there’s inflammation and/or some sort of problem in the body. Now people will tell themselves, “Oh, I’ll just live with it, no big deal,” but in reality? Back pain isn’t normal and it’s not good! And it can become chronic (long lasting) and/or get worse over time– yikes!
Muscle relaxers are drugs and while they can help, they can also have some bad side effects on the body. Chiropractors prefer natural methods to relax your muscles, such as applying ice or heat to get desired results.
Your body is designed to innately heal itself, and with the help of a chiropractor, it can do so. Your nervous system involves your brain, spinal cord, organs and tissues. Chiropractic care is a hands-on, natural approach to moving bones of the spine into their correct positions so they’re not irritating nerves and causing problems with the function of various organs and tissues. Basically, chiropractic care can improve brain-body communication to optimize your overall health and well-being.
