Causes of Back Pain

There are many potential causes of back pain that we categorize as macro-traumas and micro-traumas. Many patients come to our clinic soon after an injury, including a sports injury or car accident (macro-trauma). Back pain can also be caused by chronic health conditions, poor posture, muscle weakness, and repetitive motion (micro-trauma). Even a minor injury can cause significant pain. Both macro- and micro-traumas  can cause spinal misalignment, or spinal subluxation. As a result, you may experience mobility issues, a pinched nerve, muscle inflammation, and other injuries. This spinal misalignment or subluxation can also impair the ability of the spinal nerves to transmit information to and from the brain and the body, resulting in many other health issues.

The role of a chiropractor is to get to the root of the problem. Chiropractors can provide pain relief, but are ultimately concerned about finding the source of the problem, not just the symptoms. That's why our chiropractor will take a look at your medical history and perform a thorough examination before treatment begins. At MCR Chiropractic, we determine your best plan of care based on your personal goals of treatment, and our objective findings. We will review this in your report of findings appointment. 

Chiropractic Adjustments for Back Pain

The main way chiropractors treat back pain is with chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments help keep the body aligned while also improving function and reducing pain. Adjustments are gentle and quick, applying a simple thrust to restore the body’s natural alignment. Your back will also benefit from improved mobility, allowing you to move without pain.

Exercises and Breaking Bad habits

MCR Chiropractic approaches care for your back pain in 3 ways.  Chiropractic adjustments, specific exercises, and education around what bad habits, postures, diet, etc you can change to speed up and maintain your recovery from back pain.

Ice & Heat Therapy for Back Pain

Ice and heat therapy are both useful techniques you can use to decrease back pain symptoms. When you have an injury, you can first use cold to reduce inflammation. Then, you can use heat therapy to improve healing and mobility. Chiropractors offer different methods of using heat and ice in the office, and there are also some methods you can use at home. Keep in mind, these will not address what is the underlying cause of your pain, but these are great methods to try until you can receive treatment from one of our experts.
