What’s Causing My Back Pain?

The back houses most of the spine, and for many of us, it’s an essential element to the majority of our lower body movements, provides balance, and supports us while active (and sometimes while inactive). 

The causes of back pain vary considerably. If a patient is experiencing acute back pain, it may be the result of an injury, like a muscle strain. This can happen due to a sudden, definable trauma such as a car accident, slip and fall, or sports injury. 

If the back pain is chronic or ongoing, it may be related to a progressive condition, such as osteoporosis or arthritis; or maybe it’s because of habitual improper movement patterns or poor posture.

It’s important you work with a chiropractor who understands the necessity of finding the cause of your pain so the symptoms can be treated appropriately.

Back pain affects those of all ages, and our family chiropractic care can benefit all.

Our team helps with several kinds of back and spine-related dysfunctions, including:

  • Herniated discs or bulging discs, including lumbar herniations (lower back) and cervical herniations (neck)
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures or breaks
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruising of muscles or pulled muscles
  • Compression of spine
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • And more

Is Chiropractic Care Effective for Back Pain?

Just as research studies have shown that chiropractic care is more effective in treating neck pain than many other options, similar studies have shown that back pain also responds well to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care can address many of the issues that contribute to back pain, including stiff joints, tense muscles, and problems with the alignment of the spine. Chiropractic can also be used in combination with other treatment modalities to give patients the best chance of a full recovery.

Because the back and spine are worked regularly, injury is common, but when you let our chiropractic team support you, we find the optimal approach to your unique needs. We want you to live life to the fullest with a safe, reliable body, and we have the solutions to help you get there.

Better Chiropractic Can Help Relieve & End Your Back Pain

We know that finding relief for your back pain is your number one priority; it’s ours too. But we also know that we must discover what’s causing it to get it controlled and keep it from re-injury. If the injury isn’t treated, the pain will keep coming back. 

Our in-clinic methods are geared toward keeping you out of the doctor’s office and functioning fully, and we have an array of symptoms that we help manage.

Frequent back pain symptoms include:

  • Sore or aching back muscles
  • Lower back stiffness
  • Tenderness in back
  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility 
  • Dull pain
  • Stabbing back pain
  • Radiating (or traveling) pain
  • Throbbing pain
  • Acute pain
  • Chronic pain 


It’s not always a swift event that causes your back pain. Prolonged spine and soft tissue misuse can lead to destabilization of the back and a breakdown of its proper structure. We see this a lot, and in most cases, the patient doesn’t realize the harm being caused. 

Some of the most common reasons back pain occurs include:

  • Prolonged sitting or inactivity 
  • Pregnancy 
  • Working on a computer or device regularly 
  • Improper workstation setup
  • Poor posture and ergonomics 
  • Improperly lifting heavy items
  • Sudden, awkward, or traumatic movement
  • Auto accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Sports injury
  • Work injury


Chronic back pain affects millions of adults, making it a leading cause of calling out of work, missing out on family and social events, wavering physical activity, and debilitating overall life quality. 

Managing your discomfort and maintaining good health with non-invasive, organic chiropractic services allow you to get back to doing the things you love faster, safer, and smarter.
