There are many causes of back pain. The exact cause can be difficult to identify. Balanced Body Chiropractic is experienced in examining and determining the possible factors that contribute to non-specific back pain and may be able to assist your recovery and pain management.
Back pain has many causes. There are as many pain causing tissues in and around the spine as there are ways to injure them. Most back pain has a specific cause, that is, an event, accident or trauma brings on the back pain. In other cases, the back pain begins as low level back pain that it is difficult to attribute to an event and gradually gets worse. Back pain may come from:
- a damaged or irritated disc
- a compressed disc or nerve
- muscular tightness
- muscle strain
- tendon pain or strain
- ligament sprain or strain
- facet joint sprain or irritation
- inflammation of any of the above mentioned structures
- pain referred from the body to the back
No matter the cause of your pain or the circumstance of your injury, early diagnosis generally results in a speedier recovery.
