What causes back pain?

THE back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles.  You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain.   While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements – for example, picking up a pencil from the floor – can have painful results.   Here in Marbella and Estepona we see many sports injuries as a result of playing golf or tennis. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain.   Back pain can also directly result from disease of the internal organs such as kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss.

 Will back pain go away on its own?

Until recently, researchers believed that back pain would heal on its own.  We have learned, however, that this is not true.  A recent study showed that when back pain is not treated, it may go away temporarily, but will most likely return.  The study demonstrated that in more the 33 per cent of the people who experience low-back pain, the pain lasts for more that 30 days. Only nine per cent of the people who had low-back pain for more than 30 days were pain free five years later.

If your back pain is not resolving quickly, visit your doctor of chiropractic. Your pain will often result from mechanical problems that your doctor of chiropractic can address.  Many chiropractic patients with relatively long-lasting or recurring back pain feel improvement shortly after starting chiropractic treatment.

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a safe and effective spine pain treatment.  It reduces pain, decreases medication, rapidly advances physical therapy, and requires very few passive forms of treatment, such as bed rest.

Back pain is caused by a variety of injuries and conditions. Many people who suffer from sciatica and other types of back pain may be forced to sit in front of a computer or phone all day.
