Back Pain Q&A

What causes back pain?

Back pain is a widespread occurrence that develops from many causes. In most cases, back pain is due to a mechanical problem involving the muscles, joints, nerves, or discs that make up the structures of your back. Your back pain may occur after an acute injury or develop over time due to repetitive use or the general wear-and-tear that occurs as you age. 

Common causes of back pain include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Arthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis

The severity of your pain depends on the underlying cause. For some, the pain is a dull ache, while for others, the pain is sharp and makes it difficult to move. 

When should I seek chiropractic care for back pain?

Chiropractic care is a conservative form of treatment that benefits anyone suffering from back pain, whether the pain is acute or chronic, dull, or severe. The team at East Falls Chiropractic takes a holistic approach to care and creates treatment plans focused on your whole health, not just your back pain. 

What can I expect during treatment for back pain?

You can expect personalized care from the team at East Falls Chiropractic when you come to the office with concerns about back pain. Before you start any treatment, you receive a comprehensive evaluation that includes a:

  • Review of your symptoms
  • Discussion of your medical history
  • Physical exam

The team may also request diagnostic imaging to assess your back further and help determine the underlying cause of your back pain.

How is back pain treated?

The team at East Falls Chiropractic develops a personalized treatment plan for your back pain after your evaluation. Your plan may include manual adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy. 

East Falls Chiropractic is also equipped with ProAdjuster, an advanced diagnostic and treatment tool that uses a computer program to identify the underlying cause of your back pain. With gentle oscillating force, it manipulates the spine in trouble areas to reduce pain.

Back pain is common, and chiropractic care can help you get the relief you need without medication or surgery. Call East Falls Chiropractic or book an appointment online today.
