How does back pain happen?

There are a variety of reasons why someone might experience back pain. For some people, it is the result of an injury, such as a car accident or a fall. Others might experience back pain due to health conditions such as arthritis, scoliosis, or a herniated disc. For others, lifestyle factors such as poor posture or sitting for long periods can contribute to back pain. A chiropractic visit can help identify the cause of your pain and develop a plan to address it.

What are some of the symptoms of back pain?

Back pain can manifest in a variety of ways. For some people, it is a dull ache that is constant. Others might experience sharp, shooting pain that comes and goes. Back pain can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as stiffness, numbness, or tingling. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to seek care.

When should I visit a chiropractor for back pain treatment?

Some people might wait until their pain is severe before seeking care, while others might visit a chiropractor as soon as they start experiencing symptoms. We recommend that you visit our office as soon as you start experiencing back pain. This will help us handle it early before it gets worse. The sooner you visit us, the sooner you can also find relief and resume your normal activities.

What will happen during my first chiropractic visit for back pain?

During your first visit, we will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the cause of your pain. This will include a review of your medical history, a physical examination, and tests such as x-rays. Once we have a better understanding of your pain, we will create a treatment plan. This might include chiropractic adjustments, manual therapies, or exercises.
