Back Pain Relief from Your Freehold, Matawan & Old Bridge Chiropractor
At Old Bridge Spine and Wellness, we take back pain seriously. Our chiropractic team offers pain relief and corrective care for patients with a wide variety of back pain symptoms and causes. We know that constant pain is unacceptable, and acute injuries need immediate treatment, so we always work hard to customize the most effective back pain relief plan for you.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Our patients experience back pain for countless reasons, but it’s important to understand what caused your pain in order to treat the damage and prevent it from happening again. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:
- Acute muscle strain
- Repetitive muscle damage
- Degenerative joint disease
- Degenerative disc disease
- Slipped disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Sports injury
- Workplace injury
Types and Symptoms of Back Pain
Back pain may start gradually, or only appear when you lift heavy objects or bend down. It might be dull or sharp, constant or occasional. But if the source of this pain isn’t treated, the damage often gets worse, resulting in additional symptoms and mobility problems. At Old Bridge Spine and Wellness, we know that the key to back pain relief is understanding your unique symptoms. Your chiropractor will perform a full physical examination, but your interview is just as important, because we need to know your complete health history in order to figure out the cause of your back pain.
Back pain looks different for every patient, and it even affects different parts of the back. In fact, the location tells us a lot about your possible injury. But whether your lower back, upper back, or entire back hurts, it’s important to be specific about your back pain symptoms. Here are some of the most common types and symptoms of back pain:
- Dull, throbbing back ache
- Tingling or burning sensations in your back
- Inability to twist, bend, or lift
- Leg pain
- Groin pain
- Neck pain
- Back pain after sitting for a long time (e.g. a desk job)
- Sudden onset of back pain
- Chronic, constant back pain
After your chiropractor fully understands your symptoms, our chiropractic team can get started on a custom treatment plan for you. Instead of simply alleviating these symptoms and stopping there, we use your pain as a diagnostic tool. Our goal is to provide back pain relief as part of your path towards healing, so that back pain doesn’t come back again.
