Back pain is a common complaint and a cause among those who miss work. Back pain can come from a recent injury, activity, or a medical condition and often worsens as people get older. This form of pain can be uncomfortable and debilitating, which is why many seek the assistance of a chiropractor to help with pain management.
Dr. Debra White, BSN/DC, and Dr. McKenzy L. Brewer, BS/BS/DC at Advanced Chiropractic Center in Nacogdoches, TX, are dedicated to helping their patients find a back pain treatment plan that is non-invasive and drug-free.
What Is Causing My Back Pain?
A chiropractor on our chiropractic team can first look into what is causing your pain before developing a treatment plan; because when seeking back pain relief, it can be important to first to know what is causing the pain. Common causes of back pain may include osteoporosis, strain, poor posture, muscle spasms, damaged discs, injuries, fractures, and muscle tension. Other conditions that may cause the pain may be ruptured discs, sciatica, arthritis, over-stretching, improper lifting, and abnormal curvature of the spine.
Who Is at Risk of Needing Back Pain Relief Treatment?
Some people are more prone to suffering from back pain than others. Some risk factors linked to a higher risk of developing back pain include occupational activities, being pregnant, living a sedentary lifestyle, older age, obesity, smoking, genetic factors, and poor physical fitness. In addition, medical conditions, such as cancer or arthritis, and psychological conditions, including stress and anxiety, may cause debilitating back pain.
What Are the Symptoms of Back Pain?
The main symptom of back pain is the ache and pain radiating throughout the back, and sometimes the pain goes down to the buttocks and through the legs. Depending upon the nerves causing the back pain, the pain could affect other body parts.
When Should I see a Chiropractor?
If the pain does not subside or improve after self-care, such as ice, heat, or rest, it may be time to seek medical treatment. For example, see a back pain chiropractor on our chiropractic team if the pain results from a fall, injury, or auto accident.
