Do You Have Back Pain?

low back pain

If you are living with back pain in Conroe then you know it's no walk in the park. Almost everyone will experience some form of back pain, ranging from slightly irritating to completely debilitating, in their lifetime. Whatever the degree of pain you are experiencing and whether it is acute or has become chronic, at the very least you would probably rather live without it and in the most extreme cases in can be difficult to go on living with it. This article aims to help you to understand what causes low back pain, and how our specific treatments that include physical medicine, chiropractic, and muscle rehabilitation can help you achieve lasting relief, so that you can go on enjoying those walks in the park.


Back Pain in Conroe

The back is a broad term that covers a large area of the body, made up of many tendons, ligaments, discs, muscles, and bones. Without a solid understanding of these different parts, it can complicated to locate and address the source of the pain. The following breakdown explains some of the most common issues, and their identifying features. It also explains how physical medicine, chiropractic and muscle rehabilitation can help to resolve them. This is a general guideline to help you in your quest for effective treatment, and we highly recommend that you seek a professional opinion to properly diagnose these issues.


Disc Bulges and Herniation

Disc bulges and herniation are conditions in which the outer edges of the discs, located between the vertebrae, are damaged. This causes the jelly like center to bulge or be pushed out. This is a surprisingly common issue and it is often very painful. For those who experience pain from a disc injury, the quality and intensity of it depends on the type and position of the herniation. If the damaged disc is irritating a surrounding nerve, the shooting or stabbing pain and weakness in the legs is often severe.

It is important that this issue is properly identified and promptly treated to avoid further damage. If left uncorrected, this condition can progressively get worse and require surgical intervention. However, if properly diagnosed in its early stages surgery can often be avoided. A Chiropractor in Conroe who is properly trained in identifying disc bulges and herniations will thoroughly assess your back to determine the extent of the issue and the appropriate treatment to address the herniation, and provide relief from the associated pain.


Subluxations

Subluxation is a medical term describing a misalignment in the vertebral column. There are a wide variety of causes, including physical stress, trauma and toxins. Subluxations are often quite painful and can disrupt normal movement. Subluxations are one of the most commonly overlooked contributors to back pain. The Chiropractors at our office are trained to identify and correct this issue using non-invasive adjustment techniques.


Muscular Sprains and Tendon or Ligament Strains

Strains and sprains most typically occur when we engage in tasks that our body is not accustomed to, or when we are involved in an accident. Lifting while twisting, or stretching past one's limits are common causes to strains and sprains of the back. These can be extremely painful, and are often accompanied by swelling and bruising of the surrounding area. Strains and sprains in the back tend to involve changes to the alignment of the spine and therefore typically respond well to physical medicine and chiropractic care in our office.


Stress and Back Pain

Chronic stress wreaks havoc on the body, and can eventually lead to hyper-tension and chronic back pain. The back pain is a result of tension and muscle spasms that occur when stress hormones are released. The tension will often accumulate in what are referred to as trigger points. These trigger points can be extremely painful, and need professional attention to resolve. Our chiropractors have the knowledge and tools to relieve stress from the trigger points and to deal with underlying nervous system imbalances that may be keeping your body locked in patterns of stress and pain.


Other Issues that Cause Back Pain
Conditions such as obesity, arthritis, kidney stones, and urinary tract infections have been shown to cause symptoms of low back pain. These are all serious issues that need to be identified and treated immediately to avoid long-term health issues. Our Conroe Chiropractic doctors are trained to identify these issues and support you to get the appropriate treatment. Many of these issues can have their source in spinal misalignments and respond well to the physical medicine and chiropractic adjustments we perform.
