Causes of Back Pain

Feb 26, 2015

Treating back pain in Marietta isn’t always simple.

There can be many different reasons why your back is hurting, and it probably takes an expert to ferret out the truth.

That’s why it’s imperative to get to a specialist in the area of back pain and healing, such as an orthopedic doctor, or a doctor of chiropractic medicine.

Back Accident Injuries

Accidents are a common cause of back pain, especially when you live outside of Atlanta, in places like Marietta, Tucker or any other neighborhoods close to one of the most accident-prone cities in America.

And it’s not just in your automobile that you’re likely to have a problem with accident injury. You can slip and fall, hurting yourself in the process as you smack onto the pavement against your back.

When someone has been negligent, your best option is to find a Chiropractor who understands the type of recovery process you need to get back on your feet, as well as someone who has a firm grasp of the judicial proceedings in issues like billing at-fault insurance companies.

The most common forms of injury are to the cervical spine, also known as your neck, and to the lower back. Thoracic back problems after an accident are rarer, but can still be treated.

The acute damage that leads to extreme pain or a hospital visit either needs to be addressed by an orthopedic doctor, or a doctor of Chiropractic. This can happen on a continual basis after you’ve been discharged, to get your body back to the health that you enjoyed before the accident.

Sports Related Back Pain

When you’re into sports – and even when you’re just playing a fun one-off game, it’s easy to get into trouble with injury. You get slammed from the side, hit in a joint, and the next thing you know you’re on the ground screaming.

It’s unfortunate, to say the least, but it happens. And when the action is over, you’re going to need to heal and do it all of the ways. There are connections between the joints in the lower part of your body, such as your knees and hips, all the way up your spine. The same applies to your shoulders going down.

A previous injury can also come back to haunt you, which is why if you have an old history of damage or a new one, it’s always wise to get the aftermath checked out to make sure you’re doing all that you can to stave off chronic ailments.

Back Pain Caused By Work

When you perform repetitive motions, eventually you’re going to stress out your body to the point that you’ll contract some joint pain.

This can be osteoarthritic pain that comes after you turn 50 years old, and it can be simple strains, ruptures or tears to vertebral joints, muscles, and discs. All of these can be attended to by your chiropractor, whether the pain is pressing and immediate, or whether it’s dull and something that you’ve been living with for years.
