Back pain is one of the most common reasons for people to seek out a doctor. Your back is a very complex body structure that is made up of joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves. Any accident or injury can aggravate one or more of these structures and result in back pain. Poor posture, being overweight, not being active and being involved in a car accident are some of the most common causes of back pain. All it takes is one disc in your spinal column shifting out of place to throw the whole system out of whack. When disks slip out of place or swell up, it puts pressure on the nerves that are responsible for sending signals to and from the brain. When your nerves are pinched, it can affect how certain organs function and cause discomfort and inflammation. Back pain typically does not go away on its own. In fact, it will often get worse over time, especially if you are sitting with poor posture for hours every day. Whatever the case, back pain can be a very frustrating and disabling problem. We are adept at treating and healing back pain, especially pain caused by an injury or auto accident. Our chiropractic adjustments can restore proper alignment to your spine and improve your overall health as a result.
