Most back pain can be attributed to two common causes:
- misaligned facet joints on the back of each spinal bone, and
- problems with the spinal discs, which can become swollen from injuries and then place pressure on neighboring nerves.
Chiropractic care can successfully relieve this pain, but sometimes people choose to handle it differently. Whether they choose to ignore it, treat it with bed rest, participate in therapy, take medication, or have surgery – none of these options are a cure, but rather treat symptoms, and may lead to a worsened condition or bring about other pains and discomforts.
The chiropractic approach to back pain involves manipulation of the spine to restore function. Affected discs and soft tissues are allowed to heal, nerve association may be reduced and pain can be lessened.
