What is Back Pain?
Back pain is pain or physical discomfort that is felt along the spine or anywhere on the back. This pain can range from mild, all the way to debilitating. You may experience acute back pain, lasting no more than a few days or weeks at a time, or chronic back pain, lasting for months. Back pain is one of the most common medical issues out there.
Types of Back Pain
Upper Back Pain
Upper back pain, like any type of back pain, affects people differently, partly because there are many different causes. Upper back pain causes vary, but include poor posture, improper lifting, and “text neck,” or commonly looking down at a phone, tablet, or other device.
Low Back Pain
Are you experiencing low back pain? You’re not alone. It’s one of the most common reasons why people see us. Low back pain causes include injuries, pulled muscles, and poor posture.
Neck pain often accompanies other types of back pain, and can lead to other symptoms, including headaches, decreased mobility, and more. Neck pain causes include poor posture, overuse, and nerve compression.
There are many causes of back pain, including a pinched nerve, a ligament or muscle strain, a ruptured disc, arthritis, a sports injury, a car accident injury, and more. Back pain can also develop without a clear or known cause.

Through various techniques, including spinal adjustment, spinal decompression, and specialized therapies, we aim to restore mobility, reduce nerve pressure, and help you find back pain relief. We even offer massage therapy that works with chiropractic care to aid in alleviating your back pain.

At-Home Back Pain Treatment
Prior to seeking chiropractic care, many patients initially turn to both over-the-counter and prescription medications (such as opioids, steroidal, and non-steroidal drugs) to help combat the pain of back problems. These medications may provide you with quick back pain relief, but are a short-term solution for a long-term problem. What’s more, these medications often come with severe side effects and addictive properties. We work to find the root cause of your pain, creating your personalized back pain treatment plan from the findings in an effort to help you achieve long-term relief from back pain.
Long-Term Back Pain Relief
There is hope for drug-free back pain relief. With chiropractic care, simple everyday modifications, and healthy lifestyle changes, your drug-free, and cost-effective back pain relief solution is available to you.
