Most Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain are often caused by variety of various conditions and ailments. According to NASA and Mayo Clinic, some of the most common causes of back pain include:

Sedentary Lifestyle (not moving 8 – 10 miles per day of all-day tiny movement);

Sitting Disease (sitting more than 30 minutes at a time);

Strains of muscles or ligaments;

Bulging or ruptured disk (herniated disk injury);

Arthritis of the spine;

Osteoporosis; and

Skeletal irregularities.

Of course, back pain could even be the results of an acute back injury that happens from car accident, slipping and falling, or lifting something too heavy, and more. But the vast majority of back pain is due to sticky spinal joints not moving enough because of subluxation of the spine. This loss of spinal joint function impedes on the nerve signaling to your brain and body causing dis-ease. Your brain perceives this nerve signal as nociception, or your brains’ ability to perceive pain. The reality your brain is suffering from movement deficiencies and is telling your body to move your spine.

How Back Pain Can Shape Your Life

You don’t have to continue living with back pain. It doesn’t have to shape your life. Your pain may be preventing you from doing things that you love, it is a signal for help. It does not need to keep you from your passion with your kids, or work. You need a Doctor of Chiropractic to analyze your situation, get to the root cause of your condition and treat it naturally without drugs or surgery.

A back injury can cause pain within the back and cause radiating pain to your legs, shoulders, or arms; weakness in your extremities; headaches; and bowel problems. They may be persistent, or appear to go away. However, these signals are an indicator of a malfunction, they are telling you to visit a chiropractor for an assessment and these ‘it went away’ symptoms should never be taken lightly. Most people wait when pain is persistent and other symptoms before they see a doctor and seek relief immediately. That band-aid approach has fueled an opioid epidemic causing more people to become prescription drug addicts than any single medication in history. Opioids are band-aids, they only cover up the problem. You want a doctor that treats the cause, and that is Dr. Matt Hammett and Dr. Trish Hammett at New Life Family Chiropractic Center.

How Chiropractic Care May Help Alleviate Back Pain

Not only is chiropractic care Americans Number 1 way to treat back pain, it also works to fix the cause and implement lifestyle strategies to keep it that way.

During your first visit to New Life Family Chiropractic Center, you will discuss your symptoms with Dr. Matt or Dr. Trish Hammett. One of the chiropractors will review your needs, including your stress and activity levels both at home or work. We will discuss your work related activities and repetitive movement or sedentary movements, diet and exercise, health history, sleep habits, any injuries you’ve suffered, supplements you’re taking, and more. Getting a complete holistic look of your health map are going to be critical in effective treatment. You will also undergo a physical exam to work out your range of motion and mobility within the spine. If needed, on site we will Xray you.

On the subsequent visit to New Life Family Chiropractic Center, treatment will ensue. The most common treatment–spinal adjustment–will be done by hand or with a gentle tool. You may even be asked about other treatment options, starting from exercise, tiny movement, to lifestyle changes and more.
