Four Common Causes of Back Pain with Your Elkhorn & Millard Chiropractor
Your Elkhorn & Millard chiropractor, Dr. Russell Corey treats patients suffering from back pain every day. Though back pain is a common condition, its causes are many and varied, making a professional opinion and diagnosis paramount to successful treatment. These causes break down easily into four separate categories: injury, structural problems, disease or illness, and everyday activities.
- Injury - Sprains, strains, and spasms are all common injuries which cause back pain. These can occur due to lifting heavy objects, repetitive motion, sports, or simply picking up a pencil off the floor.
- Structural Issues - The musculoskeletal system is a complicated, intricate structure which can easily go out of balance due to injuries or other conditions. Structural problems with the spine often result from conditions from osteoporosis, sciatica, subluxated vertebrae, scoliosis, and bulging or herniated discs.
- Disease and Illness - Back pain also sometimes results from illness and disease including spinal infections, spinal cancer, shingles virus, bladder and kidney infections, and pelvic inflammatory disease. Individuals suffering from sleep disorders tend to experience back pain more frequently than those who rest through the night. Since back pain can be a symptom of more than a back problem, it is always important to speak with a medical professional if you suffer from persistent back pain.
- Everyday Activities - Small parts of our everyday lives can cause back pain, too. This includes poor posture, prolonged sitting or standing, stress, carrying a heavy bag, and leaning over smartphones.
