Types of Back Problems

Lower Back Pain

Pain in the lower back is the most common type of back issue. For some this ache is mild, and many simply choose to deal with it rather than see a chiropractor. However, if it is ignored too long it can turn into a very painful and chronic condition. When pain is exclusive to the low back, it may be dull. In some cases, pain that begins in the lower back moves into the legs, and may even reach the feet. This may be sharper and could signal a sign that there is a problem with the sciatic nerve.

This type of problem is often caused by straining the muscles in the back, exercising bad form while lifting, or general overexertion.

Upper and Middle Back Pain

While not quite as common as lower back issues, upper and middle back pain still poses a problem for many. Some of the things that cause problems in this area include:

  • Poor Posture
  • Strain from overuse
  • Pressure from a herniated disk
  • Vertebrae fracture
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Myofascial pain in muscle tissue

When pain happens, there are two main goals; alleviate it, and prevent it from coming back. At Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Chan works with each patient to help them reach these goals by using customized treatment options including standard spinal manipulation, corrective exercises, acupuncture, lifestyle and diet advice, and more.
