Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

By Donna Stark

Back pain has become as prevalent as the common cold and more than likely, you have either experienced it or you know somebody who has. It was once regarded as only an "adult" issue, but unfortunately, back pain is now reaching everyone. From the young to the old, it doesn't seem to spare any age. Luckily, if you or a loved one is struggling with back pain, there is an easy solution and that solution can be found at The Joint Chiropractic.

Types of Back Pain

Back pain can be caused by many different things but will generally fall into one of two categories. It's important to know the difference between the two so you can focus on how to best take care of yourself. Take a look below.

  • Acute back pain - Acute back pain comes on suddenly and is caused by a specific event. It generally does not last longer than four weeks and many patients will improve without any long-term problems. The good thing about this pain is that once your body is healed, life can usually go on as it did before the injury.
  • Chronic back pain - Chronic back pain, on the other hand, is pain that continues, and continues, and continues. And even though it can start suddenly, the cause of this pain generally builds up over time. This pain will typically last longer than three months, and usually always requires a professional diagnosis. The downside to chronic pain (other than the pain itself) is that many people will also suffer from depression, anger, stress, and mood swings. It can be extremely debilitating.

Symptoms of Back Pain

With so many moving parts (discs, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles), it is easy to see how back pain may begin. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms for more than a few days, head on in to The Joint Chiropractic for some relief.

  • Aches or soreness in the lower back
  • Stabbing or shooting pain
  • Pain that travels down the leg to the foot
  • Inability to stand up straight without pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Limited mobility
  • Weakness, numbness, or tingling in one or both legs
