Why Do I Have Back Pain?

Back pain has many different causes, and sometimes it’s a challenge to pinpoint what the root issue is. That’s why an accurate diagnosis is critical, rather than simply treating the pain symptoms alone. Your aching back is likely due to completely different problems than someone else — even if you’re experiencing similar symptoms.

Back pain may be caused by these common injuries and conditions:

  • Auto accidents: If you're left with lingering pain after an auto accident, it's most likely because the force of the impact damaged something in your back.
  • Sprains and strains: Even a minor injury can leave you with significant pain in your back.
  • Disc problems: If you have a bulging, ruptured, or herniated disc, you probably feel it, even if you're not sure where the pain is coming from.
  • Sciatica: This common condition causes pain that begins in the lower back and radiates down one leg.
  • Spinal stenosis: This condition puts pressure on the nerves of the spine, leading to pain in the back.

How Chiropractors Treat Back Pain

During your first visit to Tucson Chiropractic Spine & Injury Center, Dr. Cross will explain the science behind how chiropractic care works and give you a complete evaluation to see if chiropractic care is right for you. If there is a good fit, we can develop a plan that is specific to your condition and health goals.

Back pain is the primary reason people book appointments with chiropractors. During your initial appointment, Dr. Cross will listen to how you describe your back pain so he can help develop a personalized plan that meets your unique needs. He will ask how your back pain started, the effect your pain has had on your activities, your level of pain, and any other symptoms you may have. He will also perform a physical examination to analyze your alignment, muscle tone, and how your body moves when you bend, turn, and twist.

You might not know where your back pain originates, but Dr. Cross will examine your back to pinpoint where the discomfort is coming from and its root cause. This will allow him to help you put together a drug-free recovery plan that works for you and doesn’t simply mask your pain.

Chiropractic care is especially useful in treating back pain because it involves spinal manipulation. Also called manual manipulation, this process involves the use of the hands to improve joint mobility of the spine and reduce muscle tightness at the same time. Dr. Cross also utilizes other therapies to address back pain, such as exercise regimens and self-care. These may include dietary suggestions, physical activity recommendations, instructions for hot/cold therapy to do at home, and much more.
