Consider Chiropractic for All Types of Back Pain

By Brandi Goodman  

Individuals experiencing lower back pain are some of the most frequent visitors to the chiropractic office. Pain in your lower back area is not the only type you can experience, though. All types of back pain, and even pain elsewhere in the body, can be helped by chiropractic. 

Upper Back and Shoulder Pain

The upper back and shoulders are also an area for concern. This tends to be where a lot of people hold tension in their body. If you ever notice that your shoulders, neck, or upper back start to ache when you're feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, that could be why. An adjustment can help to release some of that tension and get this area feeling like normal.

The bag you're using can also cause discomfort in this area. If you have a heavy bag that goes over one shoulder, it may be tugging you down too much and causing uneven weight distribution. This can lead to significant pain on one side. 

Middle Back Pain

If you wake up feeling pain right in the middle of your back, your mattress may be to blame. Sleeping on a lumpy surface can throw off your spine and cause discomfort. You may also experience pain here if you find yourself twisting often, or bending your back to pick up heavy items. You need to avoid twisting and lift with your legs rather than your back to avoid this. Seeing the chiropractor can help to alleviate some of the discomfort and provide further advice for how to keep pain out of this area. 

Lower Back and Hip Pain

Your lower back can suffer considerably, depending on how you're sitting or standing. Sit with poor posture, slump forward, or slouch to one side, and you're bound to feel a nagging sensation in your lower back or hips. It's important to exhibit good posture at all times and put a pillow or lumbar support cushion behind you to hold yourself upright if needed. It will help with the pain. 

When you're experiencing any type of discomfort in your back or body, it's wise to stop in at The Joint Chiropractic for an assessment. You never know what even the most miniscule joint restriction can do to hinder your body's abilities. Or there could be a serious underlying concern that needs to be addressed. 

Whether it's something more serious or just a symptom of poor posture and unhealthy habits, a doctor of chiropractic will help get to the root of the issue so you can minimize your back pain and find a solution to help you going forward.
