Your Path to Lasting Back Pain Relief Begins with our Modesto Chiropractor

If you’re suffering from lower back or upper back pain, your first step to lasting relief begins with Modesto chiropractor, Dr. Chester Graham of Graham Chiropractic Wellness Center. Discomfort in your back doesn’t have to keep you down for long and you have more than a few treatment options available to you that do not require heavy narcotic medications or surgery.

You are not alone if you’re suffering from back pain. In fact, the American Chiropractic Association reports that it is the leading cause of disability around the world with a wide majority of back pain causes being mechanical or non-organic in nature. This means that they are not related to major diseases like cancer or arthritis. Chiropractic care can assist in treating mechanical injuries and ailments that lead to the ache you’re experiencing in your back.

Causes of Low Back Pain

When you seek treatment for your sore back, one of the first things we’ll do is strive to understand the underlying problem that is causing the discomfort. This might involve asking questions to help us understand the nature of the injury better, so we can treat your condition without causing further aggravation.

Common causes of lower back pain include the following:

  • Muscle Strain/Sprain
  • Sprains
  • Poor Posture
  • Impact Injuries
  • Lifting Heavy Objects
  • Sudden Movements

Many of these injuries and ailments can be treated safely and effectively, without the use of harsh drugs or invasive procedures, by Dr. Graham. Which means you can experience immediate relief from your pain while also learning about exercises you can do at home that will help to strengthen your back without aggravating your injury.

Upper Back Pain Causes

Many of the causes of lower and upper back pain are quite similar – as are the treatments. Among common causes for upper back pain, you may experience conditions such as herniated or bulging discs, fractured vertebrae, overuse of muscle strain, injuries to your back muscles, and or injuries to the ligaments and discs that support the spine. Poor posture is another leading cause of upper back pain as is osteoarthritis.

The thing you want to remember with all back pain is that it may be an indication of something far more serious – especially if the pain is prolonged. It is always better to err on the side of caution and schedule an appointment with Graham Chiropractic Wellness Center to get the care you need and to rule out the potential for more serious conditions, like cancer, infections, or even gallbladder disease that could be causing your discomfort.
