Causes of Back Pain
Simple overuse is one of the major causes of back pain, with straining of the muscles and ligaments. However, a variety of medical conditions can also affect the structures in the back. Herniated or ruptured discs can make normal movement very painful. Stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal, can occur. Sciatica, caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, can cause pain and tingling. Osteoarthritis, the deterioration of spinal structures from normal wear and tear over time, can cause back pain. Injuries to the spine, from auto accidents, sports injuries or work injuries, can lead to long-term back problems that require ongoing care. Even poor posture, over time, can cause intermittent or constant back pain.
Chiropractic Methods Can Help Resolve Back Pain Symptoms
Manual adjustment re-aligns spinal structures to relieve pain and improve normal spinal function. Your chiropractor in Lexington can utilize a variety of specialized techniques to reduce discomfort. Corrective exercises help to strengthen back muscles for greater flexibility and range of motion. Massage therapy soothes inflamed tissue and facilitates movement. Nutritional support and lifestyle advice can help heal old back injuries and prevent re-injury.
