If you live with back pain like so many others, the discomfort can limit your mobility and make simple tasks challenging. At The Healing Touch Chiropractic in Sacramento, CA, we offer a variety of treatments that can eliminate your pain and help you return to an active lifestyle. In the meantime, read about some commonly asked questions regarding back pain below!

What causes back pain? 

Back pain can occur due to a variety of causes, such as the work you do and your daily habits. Some common causes include:

  • Being overweight or pregnant
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Skeletal abnormalities, such as scoliosis
  • A subluxation or misalignment
  • Poor posture
  • Spinal compression
  • Sprains and strains

Should I worry about my back pain?

While back pain can sometimes be linked to serious conditions, like pancreatitis or gallstones, these causes rarely occur in back pain. Your discomfort may usually be due to an issue within the musculoskeletal system. We recommend seeking treatment, as the pain can become chronic and ignorantly affect your range of motion.

What can I do to receive back pain relief? 

Back pain can be eliminated when the root cause of the discomfort is identified and addressed. If your pain is due to poor posture, considering how you sit and stand can provide relief. If excess weight causing pain, diet and exercise can relieve the strain on your body. Stretching daily is also helpful for reducing the tension that is contributing to the discomfort. When you visit us, our chiropractors can help determine the root cause of your pain and provide prompt treatment.

How can chiropractic care provide back pain relief? 

Our chiropractors provide a variety of techniques that can be beneficial for pain relief, such as adjustments, decompression therapy, and soft tissue techniques. The techniques used depend on the root cause of your pain. If the ache is caused by scoliosis, a regular adjustment session can help. However, if your discomfort is from a herniated disc, sciatic, or subluxation, we may combine adjustments and decompression therapy. Your treatment plan will be customized to your needs.
