Why Does My Back Always Hurt? Treating Back Pain At Family Chiropractic

Treating Back Pain At Family Chiropractic

Back pain is a common ailment that affects millions of people globally. It can be the result of various conditions such as an injury, poor posture, or an underlying health issue.

The pain can range from mild to severe, interfering with your daily activities and significantly reducing your quality of life.

However, the good news is that you don’t have to live with the pain! At Family Chiropractic, we are passionate about treating chronic conditions with chiropractic and helping to restore health and well-being through the body’s own natural healing processes.

With firsthand experience in restoring health after dealing with chronic conditions, Dr. Amanda Jordan and Dr. Cotey Jordan have helped countless people get their vitality back – and you could be next! Here’s how:

What causes chronic back pain?

Chronic back pain can be attributed to a multitude of factors. One common cause is mechanical issues, which involve the way the spine moves or the way you feel when you move your spine in certain ways. This could be due to intervertebral disc degeneration – a condition that occurs when the discs located between the vertebrae of the spine break down with age. Another mechanical cause could be from abnormal curvature of the spine, where your spine curves in an unusual way causing back pain.

In many cases, chronic back pain can also be a result of injuries, such as sprains and fractures. These can result from an accident, sports injury, or simply by lifting something heavy. Conditions like arthritis can lead to spinal stenosis, where the space around the spinal cord narrows causing back pain. Certain lifestyle factors such as lack of regular exercise, being overweight, or smoking can also contribute to chronic back pain.

Poor posture is a significant contributor to back pain, often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of daily life. When we consistently adopt incorrect postures, such as hunching over a computer or slouching in a chair, we place undue stress on the muscles and ligaments in our back. Over time, this undue pressure can lead to the misalignment of the spine, tension in the muscles, and even degenerative changes to the spinal structure. This constant stress and strain on the back can result in chronic discomfort and pain. Moreover, poor posture doesn’t just impact your back. It can also cause issues elsewhere in the body, as it forces other muscles and joints to compensate for this imbalance, leading to a chain reaction of discomfort and pain throughout the body. It’s essential to be mindful of maintaining a good posture to prevent back pain and associated health problems.

Certain diseases or disorders, such as fibromyalgia or kidney stones, can also lead to chronic back pain. It’s important to get a correct diagnosis to ensure the right course of treatment, and our team at Family Chiropractic is committed to identifying the root cause of your pain and creating a personalized treatment plan.

How the Gonstead Technique Works

At Family Chiropractic, Drs. Amanda and Cotey Jordan use the Gonstead technique to help alleviate back pain. This technique involves a thorough analysis of the spine and any underlying issues to determine the exact source of the pain. The Gonstead technique is specifically tailored to each patient’s needs, and our chiropractors use precise adjustments to correct any misalignments in the spine.

Benefits of the Gonstead Technique

The Gonstead technique offers many benefits, including:

  • Improved Range of Motion – Correcting misalignments can improve your flexibility and mobility, allowing you to move with greater ease.
  • Pain Relief – Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate pain and restore your comfort.
  • Restored Nerve Function – When the spine is out of alignment, it can cause nerve interference, leading to various health issues. By correcting any misalignments, we can restore proper nerve function.

Does chiropractic care hurt?

One of the common concerns among new patients is whether chiropractic care hurts. The answer is: typically, chiropractic adjustments do not cause pain. In fact, many patients report immediate relief following treatment. However, some individuals may experience mild soreness or aching, similar to what you feel after certain types of exercise. This minor discomfort usually subsides within 24 hours. It’s important to communicate with your chiropractor during the adjustment, so they can make the experience as comfortable as possible for you. Rest assured, at Family Chiropractic, our goal is to ensure your treatment is not only effective, but also comfortable and stress-free.
