Back Pain FAQs

If you have back pain, you are in good company because most of us have experienced back pain at some point in life. At GENESIS Chiropractic Functional Health, we have provided residents of Long Beach, CA with natural and effective back pain treatment for many years. following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding back pain treatment.

.

What causes back pain?

There are several potential causes of back pain, including:

  • Osteoarthritis: When the cartilage that cushions vertebrae bones thins or wears out, bones may rub against each other, causing pain and stiffness.
  • Sciatica: When the sciatic nerve is pressed, pinched, or compressed, you may experience pain radiating from the lower back to one of the legs. The causes of sciatica include injury, obesity, and medical conditions that weaken your back structures.
  • Herniated disc: Gradual wear and tear may cause degeneration of discs. As a result, the discs may lose shape, pinching a nearby nerve, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling.
  • Injury: Sports accidents, falls, slips, and car accidents may injure the structures in your back, causing pain and limited mobility.
  • Scoliosis: The abnormal curvature of the spine may put pressure on the spinal structures, causing pain.
  • Spinal stenosis: Narrowing the vertebrae column may compress the spinal structures, causing back pain.

If you have back pain that lasts for more than a few days, you had better seek chiropractic care before your condition worsens. The earlier you seek treatment, the better the chances of recovery.

What are the risk factors for back pain?

While everyone is at risk of back pain, some people are at more increased risk of back pain. Here are factors likely to trigger back pain:

  • Age: The older you are, the higher the chances of back pain
  • Pregnancy: Physical and physiological changes during pregnancy increase the chances of back pain
  • Occupation: If you spend much of the time sitting or lifting weights, back pain is likely to crop up
  • Obesity: Unhealthy weight puts undue pressure on the spine, triggering back pain
  • Medical conditions: Conditions like arthritis, tumors, and spinal stenosis put you at risk of back pain.

How does a chiropractor treat back pain?

Spinal manipulation is usually the first treatment we use to treat back pain. This therapy aligns your back, triggering your body’s self-healing mechanism. As a result, you get relief on your back and your whole body. The other chiropractic treatments for back pain include:

  • Stretching exercises
  • Lifestyle advice
  • Nutritional counseling
