Back Pain Q&A

What causes lower and upper back pain?

While uncomfortable, back pain is common. In fact, according to research, about 16 million adults experience some type of back pain. It can result from various factors, and understanding its origins is crucial for effective treatment. Common causes include:

Poor posture
Incorrect sitting or standing posture can strain the muscles and ligaments in your back, leading to discomfort over time.

Muscle strain
Overexertion, heavy lifting, or sudden movements can cause muscle strain, resulting in both lower and upper back pain.

Herniated discs
When the soft discs between your vertebrae bulge or rupture, they can press on nerves, causing pain in the back.

When should I see a chiropractor for back pain? 

If you are experiencing persistent back pain, seeking the expertise of a chiropractor is advisable. Some signs that indicate it's time to consult a chiropractic professional include:

Prolonged discomfort
If your back pain persists for more than a few days, despite rest and over-the-counter remedies, it's time to seek professional help.

Muscle strain
Difficulty moving, bending, or performing daily activities due to back pain warrants a chiropractic evaluation.

Herniated discs
If your back pain radiates down your legs or arms, it may indicate nerve compression, requiring chiropractic attention.
