Taking a Closer Look at What Causes Back Pain
An ache here and a pain there may be normal, but if you are like some people, back pain can be one of the biggest issues that you face in your daily life. One of the biggest reasons that back pain is such a prevalent problem is because the spine is so easily injured as the central part of the body. Here are a few of the more common issues and injuries directly related to what causes back pain.
Ligament Strain and Muscle Sprains
Of the reasons people will make an appointment with our chiropractic care center in the Metro-Scottsdale-Phoenix area is because they have put stress on their back with recent activity. The stress of the spinal column and the surrounding muscles and ligaments are typically associated with improper lifting or repeated movements that have placed excess strain on the area.
Irregularities of the Spine
Whether you are born with irregularities of the spine or they develop over time due to poor posture or being overweight, these issues can bring about a great deal of pain in the back and a definite reason to visit a chiropractor. Scoliosis, which is one condition that results in abnormal spinal curvature, is well-known for bringing patients in to seek the attention of our chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Secrest, DC.
Arthritis, Osteoporosis, and Other Degenerative Diseases
In many cases, a visit to our chiropractic center that is located in South Scottsdale and serve the communities of Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Metro-Scottsdale-Phoenix, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills is related to degenerative diseases that take a toll on the spine with age. Diseases like osteoporosis and arthritis can directly cause the degeneration of the bones of the spine and tissues surrounding it. Along with this degeneration, comes nerve damage and inflammation that can cause a great deal of pain.
