At Back in Balance Chiropractic, many of our patients have concerns regarding their acute or chronic back pain. Our Bangor, ME chiropractors provide the answers for frequently asked questions about back pain and treatment.
Most often, people injure their backs by pulling a muscle or straining a ligament. The pulled muscle can occur quickly, perhaps from lifting something too heavy or twisting too fast. Sports injuries and auto accident injuries are also very common.
Many people feel a dull back ache which sometimes radiates to the pelvis and hips and is often accompanied by muscle spasms. Sharp, localized pain is often associated with lifting injuries. Back pain may also cause the inability to stand straight or cause muscle spasms.
Pain often worsens when people sit for long periods because sitting puts added pressure on the discs. Many patients say their back pain is the worst when they first wake up in the morning, but better after they get up and move around.
There are many conditions that could cause chronic back pain. It’s important to get a proper diagnosis first, as this will affect your treatment plan. A few of them include:
Back pain is also often associated with poor posture. Because of its curved structure and location, the spine can be injured over time both by repetitive motions and poor posture. In order to prevent posture related injuries, make sure to use proper lifting techniques and stretch regularly throughout the day, especially if your work requires repetitive motions or sitting at your desk.
Chiropractic care is non-invasive and non-surgical care for your back pain. Treatment is designed to correct the underlying spinal problem that is causing your pain. We will evaluate your spine and do a chiropractic adjustment to align vertebrae and discs to promote healing and ease the pain.
