everyone suffers from occasional back pain due to bad posture,
overdoing, or carelessness in straining their back. These aches and
pains generally go away over time. Chronic back pain, however, is
another story. Left unchecked, this pain can linger for weeks or
months or even get worse. At Joga
Chiropractic Center in Los Angeles, we’ll determine the source of
your back pain to see if chiropractic measures can help. The
following FAQ will give you greater insight into back pain causes and
What Are The Top Causes of Back Pain?
Back pain can be caused by age-related conditions like arthritis, accidental injuries, sports injuries, or poor lifestyle habits such as bad posture, improper lifting, poor work ergonomics, etc.
If you lift heavy objects improperly, you can strain muscles and joints, causing pain. Auto accidents, slip and falls or sports play can cause sprains and strains or misalignment of vertebrae in your spine, resulting in upper, middle, or low back pain. These injuries and more can be treated by chiropractic care.
What Happens to Your Back to Cause Pain?
Back pain can be due to strained muscles and joints, misaligned joints, torn ligaments, or compressed nerves in your spine. When bones and joints fall out of alignment, they can compress your sciatic nerve, one of the largest nerves in your spine, causing excruciating pain. A herniated disc can also put undue pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is a condition where low back pain extends into your legs due to pressure on the roots of your sciatic nerve.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Low Back Pain Relief?
Your Los Angeles chiropractor will first determine the source of your pain. We then utilize a combination of adjustments and manipulation techniques to alleviate tension in muscles and joints to reduce pain. Spinal manipulation can help realign joints and bones that are putting pressure on your spinal nerves and causing pain. Through manual adjustments and massage, we can reduce joint stiffness and inflammation to improve mobility and get low back pain relief.
We’ll often combine chiropractic techniques with massage therapy and rehab exercises to get maximum results from your treatment. Our nutrition and lifestyle counseling programs can teach you healthy living habits that can reduce your risks of relapse and improve your overall health and wellness.
How Many Treatments Will it Take to Eliminate Back Pain?
We’ll personalize a chiropractic treatment plan that will expedite your healing. The extent of this plan will depend on the severity of your condition.
