Back Pain Q & A
What are the common symptoms of back pain?
People with back pain tend to experience a similar set of symptoms, which vary depending on what’s causing them. They’re usually triggered by standing, walking, bending, or lifting, and include:
- Muscle aches
- Sharp stabbing or shooting pains
- Pain radiating down one leg
- Leg weakness
- Numbness in the buttocks and lower back
These symptoms usually get better when you change position or lie down.
The team at PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy uses traditional and non-traditional approaches to treat back pain. Their top priority is to get you back on your feet quickly and safely.
What causes back pain?
The many causes of back pain that prompt people to come into PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy for treatment include:
The impact experienced in a car accident can cause whiplash and back injuries like compression fractures, herniated discs, and paraspinal muscle pain.
Sciatica is inflammation of the sciatic nerve, the body’s largest nerve. When you injure or put pressure on your sciatic nerve, it can cause pain that travels along the nerve’s path from the lower back down into the legs. It often affects just one side of your body.
A herniated disc happens when a spinal disc, a tough outer pouch filled with a gel-like substance that cushions each of your vertebrae, ruptures and pushes against nearby nerves.
Osteoporosis is a chronic condition marked by a breakdown of your bones that causes them to become brittle. It can lead to your spine’s vertebrae developing compression fractures.
Lifting heavy objects or moving suddenly and awkwardly can strain your spinal ligaments and back muscles.
Spinal irregularities like scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, can lead to back pain developing in middle age.
Being overweight or in poor physical condition places strain on your back, which can cause muscle spasms.
The team at PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy completes a full exam to pinpoint and treat the source of your pain.
