Our Chiropractor in San Rafael Answers Frequently Asked Questions about Back Pain

One of the most common symptoms our chiropractor at Nystrom Chiropractic Group in San Rafael treats is back pain. In fact, back pain is an issue for 8 out of 10 people living in the United States. Many people who suffer from back pain think their only source of effective treatment is over-the-counter medications or prescriptions drugs, both of which have negative side effects. If you have pain in your back and need to find a natural type of treatment, seeing our chiropractor is a great alternative.

If you need more information about back pain, here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this common ailment.

Why Does My Back Hurt?

There are many things that can cause back pain. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Auto accident injury
  • Sports-related injury
  • Workplace injury
  • Herniated disc or slipped vertebrae
  • Muscle strain
  • Poor ergonomics

Along with feeling back pain, you might experience other symptoms such as tingling or numbness. If your back pain worsens over time, it could be due to a more serious condition, such as spinal stenosis or sciatica.

It's also important to remember that back pain that seems to come on suddenly could be due to many years of poor posture, incorrect spinal alignment, or an untreated injury from years ago.

How Does a Chiropractor Treat Back Pain?

When seeking chiropractic care for your pain, the first thing our chiropractor will do is find the root cause of your back pain. Once that has been determined, we can find an effective form of treatment that provides lower back pain relief. Some of the most common types of treatment we offer for back pain include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Whole body vibration therapy
  • Cold laser therapy

If necessary, we can also provide nutritional counseling, corrective stretches and exercises, and lifestyle guidance, which will help you maintain a pain-free back and a healthy lifestyle.

Are Any of These Treatment Methods Painful?

It is our goal to reduce your pain, not cause pain or exacerbate it. Whether we are adjusting your spine with a chiropractic adjustment or using other types of therapies, any amount of discomfort you felt before coming in will not be increased. As your body adjusts to a new spinal position, you may experience some soreness and stiffness.
