Discover Back Pain Relief with Our Carmel Chiropractor Team
Many people struggling with back pain fear they will have to depend on powerful pain medications to find relief or undergo spinal surgery at some point in the future. Both of these more invasive treatments might be necessary for some individuals. The good news is that many people living with acute or even chronic back pain can find lasting relief from drug-free and surgery-free interventions offered by chiropractic doctors. We encourage you to learn more about how our team at Carmel Wellness can help you or your loved one.
Causes of Back Pain
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 8 out of 10 people will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime. Here are a few factors that contribute to or exacerbate this common issue:
- Poor posture
- Exposure to vibrational forces
- Repetitive movements like lifting or twisting
- Frequent heavy lifting or carrying loads (e.g., heavy backpacks)
- Acute trauma, including slip and fall accidents, sports injury, work injury, or auto accident injury
Also, some people are born with genetic predispositions to conditions like scoliosis or fibromyalgia, which can also lead to back pain. In some cases, back pain may be referred from internal organs and other areas of the body (e.g., kidney stones). It's one reason why consulting with a professional can be important for optimizing your recovery. Our Carmel chiropractors are always happy to refer our patients to other providers if unusual underlying issues are suspected.
Why Do I Have Back Pain?
As noted by the American Chiropractic Association, most causes of back pain are not severe. In fact, it's not unusual to experience back pain even if you have no precise underlying diagnosis. The good news is, even "idiopathic" cases of back pain tend to respond well to non-invasive interventions like chiropractic care. When a diagnosis is possible, our Carmel chiropractors often identify issues like degenerative disc disease, nerve impingement and sciatica, muscle spasms or strains, and osteoarthritis.
