Causes of Back Pain


Strained Muscles or Ligaments
Muscles, ligaments and tendons get strained when they are pulled or torn. This results in damaged fibers and pain. additionally, if left untreated, it can lead arthritis of the joints in the spine. This pain is more common in people that sit long hours. Back pain is also related to long hours at a computer or bent over a smart phone. Finally, it is common among athletes who engage in physically-demanding activities. However, if your spine is out of alignment, you can still suffer from a pulled muscle while doing simple things like bending over to pick up something.

When you are stressed, you become tense. Besides causing your blood pressure and heart rate rise, stress also causes and your muscles to tighten. Constant stress causes your muscles to become sore and weak. Therefore, leading to inflammation and pain. The beautiful thing about chiropractic care is it improves your body’s ability to adapt to stress.

Vertebral Subluxation
A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of 1 or more of your back bones, called vertebrae. This spinal problem has the potential to interrupt proper nerve function in your body. Therefore, these back bones can have an impact on every aspect of your health.

Herniated Disc
A herniated disc results when the rubbery cushions located between vertebrae are damaged. Think of your discs as jelly doughnuts. If you push on one side of the doughnut, the jelly in the middle will push out of the other side. Your spinal discs work the same way. When one of these discs is out of alignment, or develops a crack in its outer wall, problems start. Besides the inner disc material being pushed into your spinal nerves, it can also stop the joint from moving properly. Therefore, the irritated nerves cause pain, weakness, or numbness.
