Chiropractic Care for Back Problems

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

For people suffering from back pain, chiropractic care is a noninvasive alternative. Chiropractic adjustments are a technique that chiropractors use to effectively decrease back pain by adjusting joints in the spine.

Chiropractors may diagnose and treat various spinal conditions that result in nerve or musculoskeletal pain. Many back disorders are identified and treated by chiropractic care. Let's look at different problems that cause back pain.

Strains and Sprains in the Back

A strain may be caused by pulling or twisting a muscle in a single event, such as lifting weights incorrectly. Overuse involving continuous, the repeated action of the tendons and muscles, such as doing a repetitive activity at work that induces strain, is the most common cause of chronic strain.

When a joint moves out of position because of a sudden twist or a fall, a sprain occurs. All of these problems cause damage by stretching ligaments further than their usual range of motion.

Herniated Disc

You suffer from the herniated disc when the outer section of the spinal disc is ruptured, allowing the interior component to herniate or protrude through the fibers. The herniation may cause nerve impingement or compression, resulting in back pain.


Whiplash happens when the neck and head are abruptly jerked backward and forward, subjecting the spine to rapid movements and severe forces. Neck pain is the most frequent sign of whiplash, and it may vary from mild to severe.

Degenerative Disc

It is a disorder that induces persistent pain due to a torn vertebral disc in the spine's lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions. It also causes pain in the lower back in the spine's lumbar region. It may also cause neck pain in the spinal cord.

Cervicogenic Headaches

It is a kind of secondary headache that is brought on by another sickness or physical problem. Cervicogenic headache is caused by cervical spine problems and its components, such as the soft tissue, bone, or disc elements.

Myofascial Pain

Pressure on muscles-sensitive spots creates pain in apparently unrelated body regions, which is known as myofascial pain syndrome. The condition is most common after a series of injuries or misuse of muscles.

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Back pain may make it difficult for you to do things such as exercise, stay active, and even go to work. While you may get relief from back pain by using pain medicines and treatments, the problem may remain until you seek expert care.

A chiropractor may tailor a back pain treatment strategy that treats your unique injuries and caters to your way of life. Your chiropractor may suggest some back-strengthening activities. Physical therapy may assist those who have never been active before.
