Cure Back Pain with Chiropractic Treatment

Back pain is a common health problem for middle-aged adults lower back pain mattressand seniors. Pain may be chronic or acute or intermittent. Even young adults who are spending eight hours and more sitting for five days a week and rarely engaging in any substantial physical activity over the weekends are experiencing back pain. There are many causes and thus types of back pain. Since back pain can become chronic and make way for other health conditions, it is best to seek some early effective intervention.

Let us first explore the causes of back pain and then we can explain how chiropractic treatment is an ideal remedy. Depending on the nature of the injury or condition, back pain can be cured in many cases with rehabilitation and therapy.

Causes of Back Pain

The main reasons behind back pain, including prolonged sitting, sitting jobs, prolonged standing, and long hours of driving, alongside musculoskeletal disorders. For relief, integrate regular stretching, ergonomic setups, and consider chiropractic treatments

Prolonged Sitting
Prolonged sitting is the primary cause of back pain for most people. Sitting for extended periods takes its toll on your health. In fact, some people have compared the ill-effects of sitting to smoking. Sitting for six to eight hours, either at a stretch or a few minutes break every couple of hours exerts a phenomenal amount of pressure on the spine that it is not biologically programmed to endure. Most jobs today require people to sit at one place. Obesity and weight gain also play a significant role. With greater body weight, the thrust exerted on the spine is increased exponentially.
Lower Back Pain from Sitting Jobs at Desks
You may work from home or at a doctor’s office, or in a corporate office or cubicle. Sitting is considered the new smoking. Being sedentary at a desk is not good for your spine. Some things you can do are to set an alarm to get up and stretch every 30 to 45 minutes. You can also have your workplace verify your desk set up is ergonomically correct. Chair supports can make a difference as can the level of your monitor if you are looking at a computer.
Prolonged Standing
Anything in its extreme form is undesirable. Running all day is not exactly good for health. The human body is programmed to endure certain levels of physical stress. Whenever the body is exposed to any stress that it is incapable of bearing, it will show signs. One of these signs is back pain.
Driving for Long Hours
Many patients are opting to drive rather than fly when traveling.

Is riding or driving a car for long trips bad for your back?
Sitting in a vehicle for long hours is also a common cause of back pain. It can lead to long-term back, neck, and spine issues.

What can be done to relieve your back and neck when driving?
The chiropractors at Action Spine & Joint will share simple exercises you can do on your journey. When you stop for gas, there are stretches and movement you can do to reduce stiffness and take the pressure off your back. Many modern cars have excellent seats and they provide comfort while you are sitting but then the exercise of driving and the sedentary lifestyle is not really conducive to your spine or backbone. Effectively, you will have back pain.

Musculoskeletal Disorders
Different kinds of arthritis, injuries, spinal problems, herniated disc or slipped disc, pinched nerve and inflamed tissues along the spine or the back, sore and weak hip flexor muscles among many other health ailments can also cause or facilitate back pain. It is also possible that back pain is a referred pain.

Regardless of the cause of back pain, you can opt for chiropractic treatment. With spinal adjustments, physical therapy, massage, back strengthening exercises, posture correction, and minor changes to lifestyle, you can not only get relief from back pain but you can effectively bid adieu to it in a few weeks.

My sciatica was bothering me so bad it was making it very difficult to live a normal life, at least to move normally without pretty bad pain. It was limiting the things I could do and even making it hard to do my job at times. After About three months of going to Action, Spine and Joint regularly (2 to 3 times weekly), the pain is now gone! The staff there is super friendly and accommodating and the Dr. Casey and Dr. Josh are amazing! I see why they were voted the Best Chiropractic office in Nashville for many years. Would highly recommend them!

I came to Action with significant disc compression between L5 & S1, with steady pain 8/10 and stabs way past 10. I went from not being able to walk the day after my injury to able to walk without significant pain in less than a week. Dr. Bearden & Dr. Joshua are both experts at their craft, they listened when I told them what was working, what wasn't, and what I could afford, and they worked with me to get me on a treatment plan that has helped me regain mobility & reduce pain in a short amount of time. The front of house staff is helpful, kind & generally lovely. If you're thinking about chiropractic care, look mo further than Action!

After being involved in an auto accident I had major pain to my lower back from a bulged disk, and other joint pains. The pain was constant and went on for months. Due to a pinched nerve and misalignment. After orthopedic appointments and MRIs my Dr. Referred me to these guys for help. I have noticed a major improvement since my first visit and feeling better and better every time I go. I have more energy, less pain, I am able to do things without the pain I was feeling before without the need for surgery! My blood psi is back to normal, and much more! I would highly recommend Action Spine and Joint to anyone needing to alleviate pain in their body! The physical therapy and chiropractic care is on point! And everyone is very friendly and professional.

Love Dr. Josh and Dr. Casey. When I have needed adjustment, they have always straightened me out! I especially appreciate their approach to post-injury care. They carefully assess to rule out fractures or other serious complications, including using X ray on site if needed, before performing a chiropractic adjustment. They also have excellent therapists on staff and a diverse array of equipment that can help correct posture, relieve inflammation, treat pain, and promote healing. My family and I have trusted them for years.
