Movies and TV shows often portray main characters as “old” when they experience back problems. This gives viewers the idea that only the elderly experience back pain. In reality, back pain and any other back issues do not pick their victims according to age.
Those who visit our NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City are of different ages and genders. Back pain can arise from various reasons too. Age can be a factor, yes. But there are several other reasons for the lingering back pains that millions of people worldwide experience.
Our NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City hears patients complain of debilitating and frequent back pain that takes away their strength. Understanding the true cause of their pain is the first step in patients’ journey to recovery.
If you’ve experienced back pain once in your life, you might have wondered about what caused it in the first place. Did you stay in one position for too long or move erratically? That may have hurt your back muscles or bones. Backache can also be attributed to poor posture when you sleep or drive.
People who’ve been in car and sporting accidents are prone to back pain. For some individuals, their back pain is a companion to underlying health conditions such as degenerative disc disease and arthritis.
Back injury is a prevalent reason for back pain. Unfortunately, back injuries can manifest in several ways. They can come as:
When you fail to determine and address the root of your back pain, especially spine-related, you might develop far more severe conditions that can afflict other parts of your body apart from your back.
As mentioned, spinal misalignments are a common reason for back pain. But did you know that out of all the bones in your spine, the ones in your neck are the most prone to misaligning?
It should come as no surprise that a neck misalignment can lead to back pain. To illustrate, imagine the spine as a line of dominoes. If one of the pieces falls, the rest will follow. NUCCA chiropractors are aware of this connection, and they have the means to help.
Doctors of chiropractic use safe and precise methods to correct misalignments, yielding sustainable and long-lasting relief. The NUCCA method is a particular chiropractic technique that addresses neck misalignments.
