Back Pain

Pain of any kind is a signal that something’s wrong. It’s the way your body signals that a problem has developed. If the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem can slowly worsen.

Two Common Causes

Body: The nerve-rich facet joints on the backside of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right. The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Your Choices

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, there are other choices. You can:

• Choose to ignore it (although spinal problems may worsen);
• Get bed rest (which may prolong the problem);
• Take medicine alone, or in conjunction with chiropractic care; or
• Have surgery (a drastic last resort).
