Low Back Pain Q & A
What is back pain?
Back pain is the second-leading cause of doctor’s appointments. It can encompass a variety of symptoms including sharp or shooting spine pain that radiates outward toward the lower back or leg, tingling sensations in the lower back, or tightness and reduced range of motion.
There are many types of spine pain, including:
- Low back
- Upper back
- Muscle spasms
This type of pain is typically the result of vertebrae shifting out of position due to repetitive work, car accidents, sports injuries, or improper spinal alignment. Back pain that turns chronic typically involves injured nerves, joints, discs, muscles, or bones in the spine, or a hormonal imbalance.
What causes low back pain?
An estimated 31 million American adults experience some form of low back pain at any given time. This type of back pain is often caused by:
- Strains or sprains
- Certain joint diseases
- Lumbar herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
This type of back pain is very responsive to chiropractic treatments like spinal manipulation and mobilization approaches that stretch and strengthen the muscles of the lower back.
