Back pain can be caused by car accidents or repetitive motion work injuries. Back pain may be caused by an injury resulting from straining and heavy lifting. Diseases such as arthritis, sciatica, and herniated discs are also common causes of back pain. When you have pain that persists longer than three months, it is considered chronic. As we age, the fluid between the spinal discs decreases, resulting in irritation. This irritation also causes back pain. If you are suffering from debilitating back pain, Chiropractic Associates, Inc. is ready to assist you.
Symptoms of Back Pain
Pain in your back will be obvious. However, there are some other symptoms you may not have considered. You may find that you have pressure on the nerves of your spine. This pressure is considered spinal stenosis. You may experience numbing, cramping, weakness in your back alongside back pain. You may have sciatica, which results in shooting pain down the legs to your feet. This pain happens if you have a herniated disc in your back pressing on your sciatic nerve. A herniated disc also causes burning in your legs.
Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your back pain. Once the underlying source of your discomfort has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs. Chiropractic adjustments performed will vary depending on the severity of your back pain and what is causing it.
Massage Therapy for Back Pain
Impaired circulation leads to lactic acid buildup. This build-up causes the pain you feel. When massage therapy is used on muscles, it releases lactic acid from the muscle. Massage will also improve your circulation, reducing the likelihood of your back pain returning. When your muscles relax, you will experience an improved range of motion. Massage will also increase your endorphin levels, which are the chemicals in your body that helps promote a sense of well-being.
