What is Back Pain?
Back pain is any discomfort felt from the neck down to the hip area. Most back pain is muscular in origin, while other pain can emanate from nerves that come out from the spinal column. Nearly everyone will experience back pain at some point in their lives, sometimes severe enough to seek treatment. Simple exercises, staying active, correct posture and chiropractic care can help people eliminate or reduce back pain.
Understanding Back Pain
Because the spine consists of many moving bones, along with nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons, it is a highly complex part of the anatomy. Nerves that protrude from the vertebrae can be compressed or compromised, causing pain in the back or neck. The large area of soft tissue that forms the musculature of the back takes on a huge amount of stress on a daily basis, which can cause pain.
Why Does Back Pain Recur?
Instability of the spinal structures often causes back pain to recur, as does lack of proper exercise. Prior injuries leave scar tissue that is inflexible and can break down and cause pain easier. Even after pain eases when an injury heals, scar tissue leaves the soft tissue weakened and more susceptible to future injury. Chiropractic treatment utilizes muscle recovery techniques and spinal manipulation to heal these weakened muscles. Exercise is also important to strengthen damaged muscles and soft tissue.
Chiropractic Back Pain Treatment
Sometimes back pain resolves on its own and never returns; unfortunately, for some, it comes back. With a proper chiropractic consultation, manipulation and decompression of the spine, back pain can be treated effectively and completely. Along with exercises, back pain sufferers can find relief without pills or surgery.
