Treatment for Back Pain
Back pain is common, but it's not inevitable, and it doesn't have to stop you from living the life you want or pursuing the goals that inspire you. At Pike Creek Chiropractic Center in Newark, Dr. South can help you get the long-lasting back pain relief you've been looking for through non-invasive services in a uniquely tailored approach that is suited to your needs.
Causes of Back Pain
Our patients often ask us why their backs hurt. Some of the most common conditions that can cause back pain include:
- Muscle spasms and muscle strains
- Age-related changes, including osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease
- Disc bulge and disc herniation
- Nerve compression, including sciatica
- Misalignments of spinal joints
At our chiropractic clinic in Newark, we believe that identifying the underlying condition causing a person's back pain is the first step toward treatment. Equally beneficial, however, is helping the patient understand why the condition developed in the first place. Knowing what has contributed to your back pain can empower you with the knowledge you need to take action and make healthy lifestyle changes that will support your spinal health.
Common Risk Factors
- Getting older
- Family history
- A history of trauma, such as car accidents, falls, and sports injury
- Sedentary lifestyle and insufficient exercise
- Heavy manual labor
- Underlying health conditions
For some people, there isn't always a clear reason why their back hurts. Their spines may look normal on x-ray imaging, for example, but their joint pain, stiffness, and other symptoms could be so intense that work and even self-care activities become difficult. As frustrating as this may be, unknown or idiopathic cases of back pain have still been shown to benefit from chiropractic care.
