Back Pain FAQs:
+ How do you diagnose back pain?
First we talk about the pain you’ve been experiencing and perform a hands-on examination.
During the exam, we ask about the location of your back pain, the type of pain you’re experiencing (shooting or non-shooting, for example), and the severity of your pain.
Usually, this gives us enough info to create a treatment plan. In some cases, however, we may need to get a clearer view of the spine to make a diagnosis, so X-rays, MRIs, or X-ray motion studies may be used.
+ How do you treat back pain?
We’re focused on symptom relief, preventing complications, and managing the factors that led to the back pain—or preventing those factors altogether in the future.
Your individual treatment plan will be tailored to your pain and lifestyle. Common types of treatment include chiropractic adjustments, prescribed exercises, and lifestyle counseling.
With regular appointments, a back pain sufferer will often feel tremendous relief, especially if they are diligent about staying healthy overall.
+ How common is my back pain?
You’re not alone. Back pain is extremely common. As much as 80 percent of all people in the United States have experienced back pain or will have it at some point during their lifetime. Although back pain is common, it still needs to be taken seriously—especially if it is severe or interferes with your daily life.
+ Why do I have back pain?
There are many different causes of back pain. In the majority of cases, an injury, strain, or some type of trauma causes the back pain. An incident like a car accident or a congenital disease like spina bifida could both cause back pain. However, some causes of back pain are controllable like excess weight or poor posture.
