It's no secret that back pain is one of the most common medical issues in the world. Approximately 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. If you're experiencing back pain, it's important to seek medical help to determine the cause and the best treatment plan. At United Chiropractic Health Center in Ontario, we understand how debilitating back pain can be. Whether your pain is a result of a personal injury or an auto accident injury such as whiplash, our chiropractors can help.
Common Causes of Back Pain
There are many potential causes of back pain, including injury and illness. Medical issues such as a herniated disc, osteoporosis, pulled muscles, and arthritis can also result in back pain. Some people may experience chronic pain as a result of other medical conditions. This is called referred pain. Referred pain occurs when the source of the problem is located in another area of the body, but it's felt in a different location. Certain lifestyle factors may contribute to back pain, including:
- Sedentary Lifestyle
- Poor Posture
- Smoking and alcohol abuse
What to Expect at Your Chiropractor's Office
When you arrive for your first chiropractic appointment, the chiropractor may ask you to fill out a few forms detailing your medical history. We will take a complete history of your condition and explain how chiropractic care works. We will also discuss the benefits of chiropractic treatment and what you can expect when you begin your wellness plan. By determining where your pain is located, we can develop a care plan that targets the specific source of your pain.
Our goal is to help you get back to doing the things you love, which is why we provide personalized treatment plans. We will work with you to improve your health and well-being through chiropractic adjustments, stretching and strengthening exercises, and spinal decompression therapy if needed.
