Common Causes of Back Pain

Spinal degeneration and a herniated disk can occur when the spine experiences damage, deterioration, or trauma of some kind. Spinal degeneration is often age-related with people over the age of 40 being more likely to develop the disease. Sports, workplace and auto accident injuries are all leading causes for muscle strain or tendon breakdown. Herniated disk treatment is very effective at the chiropractor's office, where the method involves using light movements to gradually move the bulging or herniated disc from the nerves.

A common diagnosed cause of back pain is a pinched nerve in the lower back, which often causes sharp or tingling pain in the lower back, legs, and buttocks. A chiropractic adjustment easily addresses the pinched nerve by treating misalignment in the bones, joints, or muscles.

Sciatica is a pain that is experienced as pain numbness, or tingling n the legs. Sciatica is caused by injury or pressure on the sciatic nerve. Whiplash is a type of injury that impacts the cervical spine located in the neck area.
