Common Questions about Back Pain Relief

Back pain is an extremely common ailment, especially as you grow older. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should just put up with the pain as part of the aging process. At Insight Health & Wellness, we offer chiropractic treatments for back pain relief. Here are some questions we’re often asked about back pain and chiropractic back pain treatment.

What’s causing my back pain?

There are numerous causes for back pain, starting with injury. Auto, workplace, and sports collisions can cause misalignments in your spine, resulting in pain. Muscle strain from heavy lifting can cause back pain. Repetitive stooping or twisting motions can cause back pain, as can chronic conditions like sciatica or arthritis. Poor posture, obesity, and pregnancy are other common causes of back pain.

How can accidental injuries affect your back to cause pain?

Accidents can cause muscle strains, ligament tears, and misalignments in your spine, all of which can result in pain. When spinal bones and joints are thrust out of alignment, they can compress nerve roots, causing pain and discomfort. Your accident may also cause a herniated disc, another painful condition. A visit to our Philadelphia, PA chiropractor will determine the cause of your pain to see if you’re a candidate for chiropractic treatment.

What are some common symptoms of back pain?

If your pain is due to sudden injury, you may feel acute, sharp pain in your back. Chronic conditions or muscle strains may cause dully, achy pain. Low back pain may be accompanied by soreness, inflammation, muscle stiffness, muscle spasms, and restricted mobility.

How do chiropractors treat back pain? 

Chiropractic care focuses on correcting imbalances in your musculoskeletal system to relieve pain and restore bodily function. Our chiropractor uses adjustments to ease misplaced bones and joints into their proper positions. This reduces pain and promotes healing. Massage, acupuncture, and corrective exercises are additional therapies we use to achieve low back pain relief.
