Unfortunately, most people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. The key is to understand what to do should this happen. Our team at Circle Chiropractic Center in Fairfax answers some of the most common questions about how chiropractic care can play a vital role below.

What causes back pain? 

There are many different reasons for back pain, some of which include:

  • Pregnancy or obesity due to the excess weight on the spine
  • Poor posture
  • Improper lifting habits
  • Overuse injuries
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Arthritis or osteoarthritis

And these issues can occur in a variety of settings. For example, some back pain is due to a sports or auto accident injury. In other cases, it’s due to work injuries. Back pain can even occur in those who sit for prolonged periods, especially if done with poor posture.

Is chiropractic care really effective for back pain management? 

Chiropractic care is incredibly effective for back pain, whether it is caused by an auto accident injury, a fall, or even poor sleep habits. The key is determining what the root cause is and addressing that cause – which is where chiropractic care stands out. It’s not about masking symptoms or providing temporary relief. It focuses on getting to the heart of the issue.

What type of pain management can a chiropractor provide? 

There are several methods of treatment for back pain, including but not limited to the following:

  • Adjustments to restore alignment to the spine
  • Decompression to gently stretch the spine, relieving tension, nerve compression, and more
  • Soft tissue therapy to relieve pain, inflammation, and tension
  • Targeted exercises to both stretch and strengthen the damaged area

These are just a few examples of potential treatment techniques. Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will determine the best combination of techniques according to your specific needs.

Will chiropractic care hurt? 

Chiropractic care is not intended to hurt at all. If, at any point during treatment, you begin to feel pain, tell our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, immediately. Treatment can be adjusted with more gentle techniques according to your comfort level.
