Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain or discomfort is a common condition that you’re likely to experience at some point during your lifetime. Numerous causes contribute to back pain, including some chronic diseases and injuries. Treatment with the experts at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness can offer you long-lasting back pain relief.

What are the symptoms of back pain?

If you have a disease affecting tissues in your back or an injury, you might experience the following symptoms:

  • Dull or aching pain
  • Sharp or shooting pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle aches
  • Radiating pain down your leg
  • Pain that gets worse with movement

You might have back pain after a sports-related or automobile accident injury. If the pain doesn’t subside within a few days or is severe, see the experts at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness for an evaluation. 

What causes back pain?

While the source of back discomfort isn’t always known, common causes include scoliosis, sciatica, a herniated disc, muscle or ligament strains, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Your risk of developing back pain increases with older age, being sedentary or overweight, improper lifting techniques, depression, anxiety, and smoking. 

How is the cause of back pain diagnosed?

To figure out what’s causing back discomfort, the team at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness discusses your symptoms and reviews your medical history. They complete a physical examination and offer in-office X-rays to treat you quickly. 

How is back pain treated?

Your customized back pain treatment depends on the type of injury or disease you have and its severity. Your provider might recommend:

Spinal adjustments

The team at Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness offers spinal adjustments to reduce any inflammation, nerve pressure, and spinal misalignment responsible for your discomfort. The adjustments are safe, effective, low-force, and tailored to your specific needs.

Bracing

Your provider might recommend wearing a back brace if you have scoliosis or an injury to better support your back and prevent future problems.

Exercise rehabilitation

Connective tissue and muscle weakness in your back can lead to discomfort. The Chiropractic Memphis Health & Wellness providers tailor strength and flexibility exercise programs to meet your personalized needs, accelerate healing, reduce pain, and relieve nerve pressure associated with a herniated disc.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is a natural way to accelerate healing, increase blood circulation, relieve tension and nerve pressure, reduce pain, and relax you.
