When Back Pain Gets Your Down, See Your Chiropractor

By Stephen R. Farris 

Do you suffer from back pain? If so, you might want to examine what's causing the pain by taking a look at your daily routine. It could be caused by the type of work you do, especially if it involves repetitive bending, twisting, lifting, and reaching. 

If you're into sports, the cause of your back pain may be from walking or running on hard surfaces, uneven terrain, lifting, twisting, reaching, or getting hit when participating in contact sports.

The pain could be a number of symptoms from shooting or stabbing sensations, or radiating pain that drifts down into your leg, ankles, and feet due to bending, lifting, and twisting. Other risk factors of back pain may be due to:

  • Age
  • Lack of exercising
  • Excess weight
  • Underlying medical conditions or disease
  • Improper lifting
  • Poor posture
  • Psychological conditions
  • Using tobacco products

Most back pain can be treated through home therapy with icing or heat, and to a degree, it may get better in a few days. However, if your back pain continues to upset the balance in your life for more than a week or longer, you might consider going to see your local chiropractor.

Your local chiropractor, such as the licensed doctors of chiropractic here at The Joint Chiropractic's Katy location, can diagnose your back pain, explain the type of treatment you'll need, and how long you should get them.

With chiropractic treatment you'll receive the pain relief you need through an all-natural, noninvasive, non-addictive hands on approach that doesn't require over-the-counter pills or prescription medication.

The doctors of chiropractic at The Joint use a technique known as chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustment helps to reduce joint restrictions and/or "misalignments" in your spine that can cut down on inflammation and provide an improvement in your mobility. Not only can chiropractic adjustment help with back pain, but can provide relief from pain in other areas of your body such as the neck, shoulders, knees, ankles, feet, arms, and wrists.

They can also help with any questions you have when it comes to exercise, nutrition, anxiety and depression, and may have helpful tips and suggestions to start your journey back towards a more healthy, vibrant, and active lifestyle that you deserve.

No appointment is necessary to see a doctor of chiropractic care at The Joint. Just walk on in, and no worries about insurance as The Joint offers a variety of treatment plans that won't put a strain on your budget.
