What Causes Back Pain and How Chiropractic Care Can Help You

There are plenty of online articles talking about how chiropractic care can help to solve lower back pain. By now, you would have read a couple of those and have come to the understanding that chiropractic care is one of your go-to back-pain solutions. However, there’s so much more to chiropractic care than simply just healing your lower back. It is much less expensive than other treatments, and there’s also less downtime during treatments. This means that if you’re tight on your budget and need a treatment program to heal your lower back quickly, chiropractic care is your answer.

That being said, if you’re new to the whole idea of chiropractic care and back pain, you’re in luck. Today, we want to tackle two questions: what causes back pain and how chiropractic care can help you.

What is causing my back pain?

While the exact cause of back pain can differ from one person to the other, it is generally caused by the overloading of the body with stress that the body cannot properly cope with. In other words, your lower back was put under physical and even emotional overloading, leading to muscular tension. However, why does this happen in the first place? It is likely to do with the body’s inability to adapt to the pressures placed on it.

As young individuals, our bodies are highly adaptable and resistant. This is why so many young folks do not experience these “old person” pains like back pain, joint pain, and the like. Even if they do experience some form of injury, they can heal within days, while adults may take weeks. This is because, as we get older, the body’s ability to adapt deteriorates, reducing the body’s ability to handle certain amounts of stress. For your back, such stress comes from lifting, pushing, or pulling different objects. 

Unfortunately, while our body’s ability to adapt and recover lessens, we continue to push our bodies. This leads to various injuries, back pain included.

How does chiropractic care solve back pain?

With all of that said, how does chiropractic care deal with back pain? Carefully.

The first thing chiropractors will do before tackling any pain experienced by an individual is to understand the cause and extent of the condition. This is followed by a physical examination of the area in question to confirm the findings. Once the two activities are done, a diagnosis is given to the patient, sharing all the collected data in simplified form.

Now, how a chiropractor goes about solving back pains will highly depend on the information gathered previously. Regardless, the outcome will be the same: restoring spinal function, reducing back pain, and improving quality of life.


If you are experiencing lower back pain at this moment, or any muscle or joint-related pain for that matter, go ahead and visit a chiropractor. With their help, you can live a much-needed pain-free life, allowing you to use your body at its best without having to hold back because of pains and aches. With that said, do take your time to research the chiropractors you want to work with before opting for their services.
