Back Pain Treatment

What Are the Risk Factors for Developing Back Pain?

Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives. In addition, back pain affects people of all ages, from adolescents to the elderly.

In fact, back pain is the third most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, behind skin disorders and osteoarthritis or joint disorders. Looking at this data, we see that most people have risk factors to develop back pain at some point in their lives.

100% of the time when pain occurs there is a disfunction with the tissues, including possible damage to the ligaments of the spine. Rarely is it ever a muscular only issue. Plus, back pain is frequently experienced months or even years after the actual onset of the condition causing pain. Typically, symptoms are the last to develop and it can take a long time for the symptoms of pain to appear.

So, how do you know if you are at risk for developing back pain? A few common risk factors lead to back pain, including aging, genetics, excess weight, poor posture, smoking, heavy lifting, sedentary office work and more.

What Can Cause Back Pain?

Back pain occurs for a variety of reasons. Thankfully, back pain frequently responds well to chiropractic treatment. However, if we find that your pain results from a condition or injury we cannot address with chiropractic care, we refer you out to the best practitioner to receive the right help.

Injuries or illnesses aren’t the only causes of back pain. Often issues like poor posture lead to back pain. Also, a combination of issues together over time can develop debilitating back pain.

Often patients believe they have a disc problem as the source of their back pain. While disc problems can lead to back pain, herniated discs are rarely the diagnosis for most patients suffering from back pain. In fact, only 2% to 4% of all patients with back pain have a disc issue. The best approach to diagnose your back pain is a consultation with a professional chiropractor.

How is Back Pain Diagnosed?

There are many different conditions that lead to back pain and it is vital wot work with a doctor such as Dr. Manteris who specializes in back pain treatment. The key to quality treatment is a good diagnosis. Most acute low back pain is mechanical in nature, meaning that there is a disruption in the way the components of the back, like the spine, muscle, intervertebral discs and nerves, fit together and move.

Pain is hard to describe, which makes diagnosis challenging. Often patients think they have the same condition as a family member because they described their pain the same way. This is not usually the case. We know the best diagnosis starts with a thorough health history and examination to determine the actual problem.

Getting a proper diagnosis, prognosis and plan of care will decrease the amount of time and money it takes to correct the problem. Dr. Manteris has the expertise to diagnosis your back pain and apply the best treatment options.

How is Back Pain Treated with Chiropractic Care?

Back pain responds remarkably well to the correction of misaligned vertebral position and the restoration of normal motion. At Broomfield Spine + Injury, we use chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations to precisely apply a gentle force to the vertebrae that is out of position. Gradually, this process restores normal range of motion, position and function of the joint.

We believe in a focus on total health as part of our treatment protocol. This means we consider a range of treatment options and recommendations to resolve back pain. For example, we may recommend exercises and other lifestyle changes to complement your adjustments.

Address back pain quickly. It’s recommended to seek back pain treatment in the first month of the onset of the pain. Waiting until the pain is unbearable is not only unhealthy but may end up costing more time, stress and money in the long run.
