Common Causes of Neck & Back Pain

How your Chiropractor in Chula Vista, CA, can help with neck and back pain

Your neck and back are important, and when they hurt, the rest of your body hurts too. There are many factors which can cause both acute and chronic neck and back pain. Fortunately, your chiropractor is an expert at pain relief.

Dr. Steven Wachs at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center in Chula Vista, CA, provides a wide range of chiropractic services, including treatment to relieve neck and back pain.

Acute neck and back pain can be caused by:

  • A car accident
  • A sports injury
  • Improper body mechanics when lifting a heavy object

Chronic neck and back pain can be caused by:

  • Poor posture, including holding your head forward while on your computer or phone
  • Arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases
  • Scoliosis and other genetic skeletal abnormalities

Chiropractic treatment for neck and back pain begins with a comprehensive physical examination, including checking the alignment of your spine. Your chiropractor will also check your posture, range-of-motion, and which specific movements are causing your pain. Imaging studies may also be recommended to determine if any structures are injured and may need surgery.

Your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan to relieve your neck and back pain, to get you moving again. Your treatment may include:

  • Acupuncture to improve circulation and your body’s ability to heal itself
  • Spinal adjustment to regain proper posture and alignment
  • Exercises to increase range-of-motion and flexibility
  • Chiropractic adjustment techniques using instruments or a table, release work, and motion palpation

You don’t have to suffer with neck and back pain when relief is just a phone call away. To learn more about the causes and treatments for neck and back pain, talk with an expert.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
