Back pain is quite common today. In fact, up to 80 percent of Americans have back pain or have experienced it in the past. While it is extremely common, it does not mean that back pain can be ignored. Back pain does not tend to resolve on its own. It may even grow much worse over time until it finally causes the patient to be incapacitated or to have a greatly reduced quality of life.
Back pain may result from many different things. In most situations, back pain results from injury, trauma, or disease. Auto accidents are very common causes of back pain, and workplace accidents may be another common cause. Diseases that damage the joints, for example, arthritis, can cause serious back pain. Some people are born with diseases that cause back pain, such as spondylolisthesis, spina bifida, and idiopathic scoliosis. In some cases, back pain may be the end result of obesity or of years of bad posture.
Evaluation of back pain will start with a consultation, during which the chiropractor and the patient can discuss the pain in detail. This gives the chiropractor a good starting place for the hands-on examination that comes next. The examination will give the chiropractor the information needed to form an effective treatment plan. In some situations, X-ray or MRI images may be needed to get a more accurate analysis of the issue.
The chiropractic care provider will focus on giving the patient pain relief as soon as possible. This means identifying the source of the back pain and making a hands-on correction right there at the source. When the spine is properly aligned, back pain is typically reduced dramatically. A properly aligned spine will also help prevent the same issues from occurring again in the future.
