Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain can have a variety of different causes. Some of the most common include:

  • Falls or sports injuries
  • Muscle strains or sprains
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Work and car accidents
  • Chronic spine problems

How does chiropractic care alleviate back pain?

Dr. Donnelly uses gentle chiropractic adjustments to put your spine back into alignment, reduce pressure on nerves, and relieve muscle strain. The goal of chiropractic care is to ensure proper nervous system function so that your body can heal naturally.

Chiropractic adjustments restore balance and symmetry to your spine, which alleviates back pain. It’s important to know that Dr. Donnelly uses many gentle chiropractic techniques to rebalance and realign your spine.

Can poor posture contribute to back pain?

Poor posture places stress on your spine and disrupts the body’s center of gravity. It pulls the spine out of alignment and causes muscle strain and tightness. As a result, nerves and blood vessels traveling through your spine are constricted. All of these issues work together to create back pain, but it can be corrected with exercise and chiropractic adjustments.

Poor posture, as well as repetitive use, leads to strain and injury of your muscles, tendons, ligaments, spine, and nerves. Working at the computer, prolonged sitting, and heavy lifting are all postural issues that can cause back pain.

Dr. Donnelly evaluates your posture, then teaches you how to make adjustments to maintain a healthy back and relieve back pain.

Does chiropractic care for back pain hurt?

Many people get anxious when they think about spinal adjustment and chiropractic care. It’s important to know that Dr. Donnelly uses gentle chiropractic techniques that effectively and safely realign your spine and decrease your pain, without causing any additional pain.

If the area being treated is already hurting, it may be tender to touch, and adjustments sometimes cause slight muscle soreness for a short time while muscles adjust to treatment, but most people experience a significant improvement in their pain levels.

Chiropractic care is recommended by medical doctors for treating low back pain. Spinal adjustment is just as effective as medication in reducing the intensity of back pain.

How many visits are necessary to treat back pain?

Dr. Donnelly creates custom treatment plans for his patients based on their physical examinations and X-rays. The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of the misalignment or injury.
