Types of Back Pain

The types of back pain you may experience fall into three main area: the upper back, the middle of your back and the lower back. The cause of your pain depends on the location of the discomfort and your situation.

Spinal decompression treatments and NUCCA spinal manipulations help with your pain. In our clinic, we clarify the location of your pain and identify the cause using an x-ray before we develop any plan for your treatment. We may use different strategies to address your concerns and help with your health goals.

Common Causes of Back Pain

The causes of back pain depend on a variety of factors. It may stem from normal activities, accidents or even lifestyle factors. By working with our chiropractor, you will have the right treatment to address your pain.

Common reasons for your pain include:

  • Muscle strains, which happen when the muscle is pulled in any area of your back
  • Ligament sprains, which occurs when the ligament tears due to a pull on the area
  • Accidents, which may cause a variety of injuries to your back
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs, particularly in the lumbar region
  • Degenerative disc conditions
  • Certain forms of arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis, which occurs in the lower back and puts pressure on the nerves as the spinal canal narrows
  • Fractures in the spine

Treating your pain depends on the cause of your discomfort. In our clinic, we clarify the cause before we recommend a strategy to help with your discomfort.
