Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain is a symptom of many conditions, and many of them come from spinal imbalances. Your spinal cord, which is within the spine, is the route that all of the nerves in your body use to transmit signals to the brain. 

When bones and tissues around the spine are out of balance, they can compress nerves in and around the spine, which causes pain.

Any back pain that comes from nerve compression may also cause neurological symptoms such as numbness or tingling. Pain and other symptoms like these can travel from the spine to other areas of the body, such as the arms or legs. 

A chiropractor can identify the location of the imbalance in your back and the cause of your back pain. They use multiple techniques to help you manage your discomfort and improve your quality of life. 

What causes back pain?

Your provider at Joint Effort Chiropractic performs a physical exam and evaluation to identify the cause of your back pain. Often, multiple factors contribute to back pain or make it worse. 

You might experience back pain and stiffness from:

  • Muscles strains or ligament sprains (often from whiplash injuries)
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle tension from stress
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Scoliosis
  • Bone spurs
  • Osteoporosis
  • Subluxations (spinal misalignment)

Occasionally, back pain comes from issues with certain organs. Kidney infections notably cause back pain as does pelvic inflammatory disease. The team at Joint Effort Chiropractic is dedicated to getting you an accurate diagnosis. 

How do chiropractors treat back pain?

Treating your back pain can involve multiple approaches within a comprehensive treatment plan. After they evaluate you, your Joint Effort Chiropractic provider chooses from their selection of treatments and therapies in the office. 

Chiropractic adjustments are often a central part of back pain treatment, and there are multiple techniques that may help. 

Chiropractic adjustments aim to align the spine to relieve nerve compression and restore balance to the musculoskeletal system. Your individualized care plan may involve:

  • Non-surgical  spinal decompression
  • Active Release Techniques® (ART®)
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Guided stretching and exercises
  • Graston Technique®
  • Matrix therapy
  • Custom shoe orthotics

You might need to make some changes at home to get the best possible results from chiropractic care for back pain. The team can help you include substantial nutrition in your diet, stop smoking, and introduce exercise into your routine.
