Back Pain

Chiropractors treat many types of pain but are particularly effective at providing back pain relief. Back pain can range from a dull ache to a stabbing pain and has the potential to be disabling. At Pamer Chiropractic Life Center West in Mansfield, OH, we provide various treatments to relieve your aches and help your body heal.


What Causes Back Pain?

There are various factors that can cause back pain, such as auto accidents or pinched nerves. While it's possible to experience pain across the entire back, pain is usually localized in the upper or lower back. If you have any discomfort that is affecting your daily activities, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Common Causes of Upper Back Pain

The upper back is made up of 12 bones and is commonly referred to as the thoracic spine. It covers the area between the bottom of the cervical spine, or neck, and the end of the ribs. Upper back pain is frequently caused by poor posture, but may also be caused by:

  • Improper lifting technique
  • Car accident injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain

The lower back is also called the lumbar spine. Not only does it support the upper body, but it also allows for movements like bending and twisting. While lower back pain has many causes, some of the more common causes include:

  • Strained muscles
  • Pinched nerves
  • Slipped discs
  • Joint dysfunction
  • Poor posture

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Chiropractic care is a very effective form of back pain treatment. Before our chiropractor provides treatment, we will typically examine your back to identify what is causing your discomfort. After, we will create a personalized treatment plan for your unique needs. Your care plan may include the following:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: This is one of the most common techniques provided by our chiropractor. It involves applying pressure to the joints and spine. While our chiropractor may use their hands for adjustments, we can also utilize tools and instruments to manipulate the spine.
  • Manual therapies: Manual therapies are another popular chiropractic technique. These therapies are especially effective at easing tension in the muscles and ligaments. Common treatments include myofascial release and trigger point therapy.
  • Therapeutic stretches and exercises: Stretches and exercises can help people develop stronger muscles so that their spine is better supported. This can treat pain and prevent future injuries to the joints and spine.
  • Lifestyle counseling: Some bad habits, like poor posture, can lead to back pain. Stress is also a common cause of back pain. When you're stressed, you typically hold tension in your muscles, which can leave you with sore muscles across your back.
