Causes of Back Pain
There are a million reasons people have back pain. Here are a few common causes:
There are many levels of pain, too. Some people experience a dull, numbing pain. Others feel strong, sharp pains. For some people the pain is constant, while others only feel it when they move in a certain direction. Regular chiropractic visits can help with all types of pain.
A Frisco chiropractor has options for patients who suffer with back pain. Regular adjustments can drastically improve chronic pain by helping a patient retain regular alignment. Some people can get by with an adjustment every few months, and others need one more often, depending on their lifestyle.
Cold laser therapy is another option an increasing number of chiropractors are using. Patients can’t feel the red light lasers, but countless studies show they are effective. The lights penetrate the skin and promote the release of tension and pain.
It’s important for those with chronic pain to get continuing treatment. If bending over and straining the back is part of the job, like with dental hygienists and car mechanics, chiropractic care may be covered by insurance.
People who suffer from back pain can benefit from increased movement. Stretching the spine and back muscles before the activity that causes stiffness or pain can help. That may mean doing yoga or stretching in the morning before sitting in a stiff computer chair all day.
If pain is caused by bad posture or weak muscles, a Frisco chiropractor may suggest lifting weights or building muscle in the back, shoulder and glutes muscles to improve overall posture. The stronger the surrounding muscles are, the less pressure on the back.
Whatever the reason for back pain, going to a chiropractor can be helpful. They can prescribe personalized treatment, realign the spine, and alleviate chronic pain. Whether it’s pain from an injury or it’s a chronic problem, visiting a chiropractor who specializes in back and spinal care is a smart move.
