Back pain or strain

back.jpg

Back pain is a common injury that can cause great pain and interfere with the daily functions of your life. Prior to the sudden onset of a back injury there is generally a pre-existing weakness within the internal structure of the spine. This weakness will then become vulnerable, triggering pain by the lifting of a heavy object, a sudden, quick movement or the sitting in a position for too long of a period.


Some causes for back pain include:
Bulging and/or herniated discs
Muscle spasms
Subluxations of the vertebrae
Strain and/or injury to the muscles or ligaments supporting the back
Small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis

Your chiropractor will first assess your injury through a hands-on review then can treat your back injury in a number of ways. Depending on the injury location, your chiropractor may perform a chiropractic adjustment to improve functionality, reduce nerve inflammation and restore range of motion in the back. Other techniques that can be used include mobilization of the area, physical therapy modalities, exercises and patient education to provide a comprehensive treatment approach.

If you suffer from back pain, and live in or around Philadelphia, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors today. We will gladly answer any of your questions and provide you with the best treatment options available to you.
