Do You Suffer From Back Pain?
We're sure many of you would agree that back pain makes everything in life worse. It can halt our daily lives, prevent us from being active and even interfere with work. Regain control of your life again and get back pain relief in Vancouver to help you regain control of your life again.
Spinal manipulation, which is a gentle movement of the back and spine to improve the alignment of your spine, helps stretch out the muscles and spine so that you reduce pain. Over time, the treatments help improve your posture so that you no longer feel pain and discomfort that stems from sitting or standing with poor posture on a regular basis. Depending on the situation, the amount of time required to improve your posture will vary.
What Are The Common Causes Of Back Pain?
There can be many causes for back pain, which can be experienced in varying degrees of sensation (dull, throbbing, or stabbing), depending on where the pain originates.
Sometimes back pain can heal on its own with some rest, while other times, it can last weeks or even months, leading to other health problems.
One of the most common concerns chiropractors look at is the spinal cord's alignment because the spine connects to muscles via tendons. A misalignment in the spine can lead to muscle strain and, inevitably, back pain.
Here are some of the top underlying causes of back pain:
- Arthritis - inflammation in the joints that lead to pain and stiffness
- Trauma - a fall, a car accident, a sports injury
- Sprain and strains - overstretching, tearing of ligaments that connect muscles or tendons
- Intervertebral disc degeneration - disks in the spine lose the ability to absorb shock from movements, causing pain
- Herniated disks - a bulge, slip, or rupture of the spinal disk that can push on nerves causing pain
- Sciatica - usually caused by a herniated disk or bone spur at the location of the sciatic nerve, which runs down both legs from the lower back
- Spinal stenosis - narrowing of the spaces within the spine, which can place pressure on the nerves
- Skeletal irregularities - include scoliosis, an unnatural curvature of the spine, lordosis and other abnormalities in the spine
The key thing to remember is that you don't have to continue living with chronic pain and there are treatments available that are non-invasive and can significantly improve your quality of life.
Alleviating Pain from Injuries
Injuries from a car accident, playing a sport or even tripping and falling during cold weather can result in back pain. Chiropractic care helps alleviate pain from an injury by stretching out the muscles. Many injuries impact the soft tissue of the back, or the muscles that support your spine, which results in pain. Although a strain or sprain takes time to fully heal, chiropractic treatments help strengthen and stretch the muscles to alleviate the pain while your body heals.
Back pain stems from a variety of situations and concerns. It can relate to injuries, pregnancy, poor posture or even just an awkward movement that strains the muscles.
