Causes of Chronic Back Pain
There are numerous reasons you may be suffering from chronic back pain, but here are some of the most common causes of chronic back pain.
Bad habits can cause significant stress on your spine, straining the soft tissue around it. Over time, repetitive stress results in the breakdown of the spine’s structural components. Poor posture is one of these bad habits. Therefore, make sure you aren’t slouching or hunching forward as you are sitting or performing activities.
Back pain is a very common injury following an auto accident. When back pain is left untreated, it can lead to degenerative changes in the spine as well as chronic pain. Whiplash and nerve injuries can also result in chronic pain.
Chronic back pain is common in athletes who participate in sports that use repetitive motion, such as running, golf, weightlifting, etc. Muscle strains that are not properly treated initially and get reinjured often lead to chronic back pain.
An actual injury is not needed to suffer chronic back pain. It is possible to suffer chronic back pain as a result of day-to-day activities like sitting at a desk all day, lifting heavy objects improperly, poor sleeping habits/positions, driving for extended periods, wearing high heels, or simply being stressed out.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help Chronic Back Pain
Chiropractic adjustments work to realign the entire spine and surrounding area to provide chronic pain relief. Using Kennedy tables, spinal decompression therapy works to gently stretch the spine in a motorized fashion to reduce the pressure on the discs of the spine. This process works well when you are suffering from sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or degenerative disc disease.
Cold laser therapy is a popular way to treat chronic back pain as well when joint and muscle inflammation is involved. Using a low-level laser, cold laser therapy works to reduce inflammation and encourage the recovery of damaged cells for a quicker recovery time. Cold laser therapy can be used to treat sprains and strains, muscle spasms, arthritis, and lower back pain.
