Common Causes of Back Pain

Common Causes of Back Pain

Living with back pain can make basic everyday tasks far more difficult. Unfortunately, people often think the solution to this is surgery, medication, or just ignoring it. However, our medical care offers natural and non-invasive treatment options for relieving back pain and helping people live without discomfort. At Generational Healthcare, we use a natural, integrated care approach to treat back pain, helping you go back to living your best life.

Causes of Back Pain

Back pain is discomfort that affects the vertebrae bones, muscles, and joints in and around the spine. Constant pain and limited mobility restrict you from performing basic activities, including walking, sitting, and standing up. There are many ways back pain can occur. However, we often see patients suffering from back pain due to:

Pulled Muscles

If you lift heavy objects or participate in rigorous activities that involved twisting and bending, it’s not uncommon to strain one of your back muscles. This is followed by pain, spasms, and tightness at the back.

Inflammation

While inflammation is a natural response of your body’s immunity to diseases, it can cause pain and discomfort. If the cause of inflammation is a disease, it may linger on your back for long, causing chronic back pain.

Sciatica 

When the sciatic nerve, which stretches from your lower back to the legs, is compressed or pinched, you are likely to experience pain along this nerve. The risk factors for sciatica include age, trauma, occupation, body weight, and diabetes.

Osteoarthritis

This inflammatory disease causes wear and tear on the discs, resulting in joints’ stiffness and pain.

Neuropathy

This disease damages one or more of your nerves, resulting in tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness. The disease starts from the arms and feet, but other body parts, including the back, may be affected.

Trauma

Sports activities, auto accidents, falls, and slips may cause sprains or dislocations at the back, resulting in pain, inflammation, and restricted mobility.

Treatment for Back Pain

At Generational Healthcare, we use an integrated care approach to treating various conditions. Common treatments we use for back pain include:

  • Physical therapy
  • PRP (platelet-rich plasma)
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Trigger point therapy
