Chiropractor treating patient for back painDifferent Types of Back Pain

Finding the source for pain in the back can be a bit tricky as there are several reasons why discomfort occurs in this region. Back pain is usually classified by the location where discomfort is felt. Knowing whether you are suffering from lower, middle, or upper back pain will help a physician or our chiropractor pinpoint the reason for discomfort. Ask someone to gently touch different portions of your back to determine which spots are painful before seeing a practitioner for an assessment.

Common Causes for Pain in The Back

Some of the more common reasons for back pain include a slipped disc, a pinched nerve, arthritis, osteoporosis, referred pain, pregnancy, sciatica, fibromyalgia, or muscle trauma. Back pain can be caused as a result of poor posture and form. It could also be contributed to using poor ergonomic practices in the workplace, such as sitting or standing in one location for an extended time period, using improper tools to conduct job tasks, or lifting excessive weight amounts without an appropriate back brace or help from another person. If you engage in an active lifestyle, overusing the muscles or finding yourself in pain as the result of a sporting or exercise injury may occur. Back problems are also often experienced after a vehicular or workplace accident happens.
