Back Pain Q & A

What are some common causes of back pain?

Back pain is incredibly common, and virtually everyone will experience some form of back pain at some point. Traumatic injury can lead to acute or chronic back pain, but there are many other causes, some of which can be challenging to diagnose.

Factors that can contribute to back pain include:

  • Ligament or muscle strain
  • Skeletal irregularities
  • Ruptured or bulging discs
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Stress
  • Certain diseases

Understanding what leads to back pain is an integral part of preventing discomfort from returning after treatment. 

Why choose chiropractic care for back pain?

You have options when it comes to treating back pain. There are certainly cases where surgical intervention is necessary, and if chiropractic care is not the best treatment path for you, your practitioner can help you find an orthopedic surgeon who can meet your needs. 

A traditional medical approach often relies on pain medication to treat back pain. While drug therapy can relieve pain, it does nothing to address the root cause. Chiropractic care focuses on addressing the underlying cause of back pain and helps your body heal in a natural, holistic manner. 

Chiropractors are trained in all aspects of spinal health. This makes them uniquely qualified to treat many types of back pain. Your treatment path is customized to address your specific set of needs. In most cases, more than one factor contributed to back pain, so it isn’t surprising that a multi-faceted treatment approach will yield the best results.  

What chiropractic treatments can help relieve back pain?

Chiropractic adjustments are one option to manually return the discs of your spine back to optimal alignment. The team at The Holton Center for Integrative Healthcare can also teach you targeted exercises to strengthen your back, as well as postural changes that will prevent the pain from returning. 

Platelet-rich plasma injections can help by boosting your innate healing abilities. Regenerative medicine is another innovative tool to help your body heal naturally.
