Back pain is one of the most common reasons that people look for chiropractic care. Back pain takes two forms: chronic, which means that it has lasted for 6 months or longer, and acute, which means that it has just emerged due to a specific circumstance (like an injury).
You can feel back pain in your middle, upper, or lower back. It may feel like aching, spasms, numbness, tingling, weakness, or sharp and shooting pain. Back pain can be caused by disruptions to the nerves, muscles, or bones and joints, all of which chiropractic care focuses on treating.
Back pain can also be the result of (or made worse by) poor posture, which can place strain and pressure on the entire spinal structure and strain the body’s overall health.
