Chiropractic Helps in Many Cases of Back Pain


As it turns out 80% of the community will have a sore back at some point in their life. Back pain is a leading cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days (NINDS). Back pain can be extremely debilitating and may stop you from enjoying your favourite activities.


Many studies have concluded that manual therapies commonly used by chiropractors are generally effective for the treatment of lower back pain (Rubinstein and Bigos).


In the discussion we'll cover: common causes of back pain, what can happen if your back situation is left untreated, and how you may benefit from chiropractic care.

Common Causes of Back Pain

Generally, the majority of back pain is acute (short term) however can develop into chronic (long term) back pain. Chronic back pain can be extremely debilitating for sufferers. There are many causes of back pain, both acute and chronic.

  • poor posture
  • muscle tightness, strain and injury
  • high impact running

  • twisting or turning the wrong way
  • heavy lifting and improper lifting technique
  • incorrect sleeping habits

What happens if ! Do Nothing About My back Pain?

Many people put up with back pain when they don't have to. Whether it's upper, mid or lower back pain, if your pain has been present for over three months it's classed as chronic back pain. Chronic back pain originates from an injury, disease or stress (physical or mental). The underlying cause needs to be identified so appropriate treatment can start. Left untreated, your pain return worse.


Further complications of chronic back situations may result in the following:

  • decreased ability to cope with pain
  • decreased ability to carry out daily tasks
  • anxiety, depression, irritability or frustration
  • progressively worsening spinal health, degeneration and posture
