Back Pain Q & A

What is back pain?

Most people experience back pain at some point in their lives. Depending on the cause, this pain can range from a dull ache to stabbing pain that shoots into an arm or leg.

Back pain often improves within a few weeks of self-care measures like hot compresses. If you have back pain that worsens or persists despite treatment, Dr. Javid and the team at South Bay Wellness Center can help.

What causes back pain?

Many things can cause back pain, from mechanical issues like poor posture while sitting or standing all day to chronic medical conditions like arthritis. The team at South Bay Wellness Center treats various causes of upper, middle, and lower back pain, including:

  • Muscle strain or ligament sprains from heavy lifting or awkward movements
  • Traumatic injuries such as whiplash
  • Herniated or bulging spinal discs
  • Skeletal irregularities like scoliosis
  • Pinched or compressed nerves

Sciatica is a common cause of lower back pain that radiates into the hip and down the back of the leg. This condition may result from a herniated disc in the lower back (lumbar spine).

How do chiropractors treat back pain?

Dr. Javid and the team at South Bay Wellness Center treat the whole patient, not just their symptoms. The team begins with a thorough review of your symptoms and medical history. They ask questions about when your back pain started and whether anything makes it better or worse.

After they pinpoint the precise cause of your back pain, the team at South Bay Wellness Center develops a treatment plan tailored to your needs. They focus on treating the root cause of your back pain without using drugs or invasive procedures like surgery.

Chiropractic care for back pain may include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Decompression therapy
  • Manual joint manipulation
  • Instrument-assisted methods
  • Laser therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Nutritional counseling

They may also teach you stretches and exercises to perform at home. Depending on your condition, you may need multiple chiropractic treatments over the course of several weeks or months for ongoing back pain relief.
