Our Boca Raton Chiropractor Targets Causes of Back Pain
Back trouble from a car accident injury, sports injury or a degenerative condition can range in severity from a mild muscle strain to a debilitating disk herniation. Fortunately, here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we can treat the underlying cause to help you achieve proper healing and natural pain management. Let us look at some common causes of back pain.
Car accident injury – An auto accident can transfer a great deal of impact force to the human spine, and this force tends to throw the vertebrae and their disks out of their normal vertical alignment. While the resulting pain and stiffness is commonly seen in the neck, in the form of whiplash, the lower part of the spinal column can be similarly affected.
Sports injury – Sports activities often place unusual stresses on the back, and the resulting injuries are not always easy to diagnose. For instance, a gymnast who constantly bends and twists his back may suffer pain from either a strained muscle or a vertebral slippage known as spondylolisthesis. Sports that involve jumping can jolt the spine into misalignment. Football and other contact sports can even cause whiplash symptoms similar to those experienced in a car accident. Disease – A variety of degenerative ailments can afflict the spinal column. For example, facet joints in the spine may begin to lose their cartilage causing osteoarthritis. A thickening of bone that impinges the spinal cord or nerve roots can also cause pain and other symptoms. Repetitive stress – Ordinary stresses and strains in the workplace can injure your back. Lifting a heavy object on your own or spending countless hours in a stiff sitting position can strain muscles and encourage misalignments.
