What Causes Back Pain?

Your back pain could be due to an injury, overuse, or disease. These problems affect the bones (vertebrae), muscles, discs, nerves, and connective tissues that make up your spine, causing pain that might occur suddenly or develop slowly.

Back Injuries

Acute back pain is typically the result of trauma from a fall, sports injury, or misuse of your back that causes damage like stretched or torn ligaments, muscle strains, ruptures in the discs, or nerve damage. Doing more strenuous activity than you’re fit for and using poor lifting techniques are common causes of acute back pain.

Spine Conditions

Chronic back pain might arise from a spinal abnormality. Scoliosis, where your spine curves to the left or right, is the most common example. Other conditions that frequently cause chronic back pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Bone Spurs
  • Vertebral Compression Fractures
  • Spondylosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated Discs

 

Intervertebral discs are shock absorbing pads between the bones of your spine.  Discs can herniate due to trauma or due to repetitive movements that cause weakening of the outer layer of the disc.  Herniated discs can compress nerves and nerve roots which can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness.

How Is Back Pain Diagnosed?

There are many causes of low back pain, so a thorough examination is required to determine the exact cause.  Premier Care practitioners are experts at conducting an examination that will identify the low back pain symptom origins.  The initial exam is usually sufficient to identify the cause of the low back pain, and to develop a treatment plan to address the issue.  There may be a need for imaging, such as MRI, CT scan, or x-ray to help make a diagnosis or to confirm a suspected diagnosis.

Our Chiropractic Back Pain Treatment Methods

Treating back pain is more successful with an accurate diagnosis. Premier Care Chiropractic prepares a treatment plan that is specific to you, taking into account your age, severity of your injury, and other factors that may influence your recovery.
