Chiropractic Care for Back Pain in Long Beach, CA
Of all the musculoskeletal symptoms humans have to endure, back pain is surely one of the most debilitating. In fact, it's the world's leading cause of disability and one of the leading causes of missed workdays. If your own battle with back pain is keeping you from earning a living, sleeping, playing your favorite sport or simply enjoying life, it's time to get relief -- in the form of chiropractic care from Dr. Michael A. Wooten at the Alamitos Bay Chiropractic & Wellness Center.
Common Back Pain Causes
The spine is graceful and amazingly capable structure, but it's also a complicated one. It not only supports your body weight, but its joints and soft tissues allow it to move freely, even as it houses and protects the spinal cord. even a small change in this delicate balance of components can cause back pain.
The cause of your back symptoms may seem obvious to you if you've experienced an acute injury. An impact on the body (as in an auto or sports accident) can strain the back muscles; dislodge vertebrae and herniated spinal discs. Lifting a heavy object incorrectly can also tear muscles and connective tissues to cause acute pain. But you can also suffer from chronic pain (which may have been years in the making) from causes such as:
- Strained or arthritic vertebral joints
- Degenerative joint or bone conditions in the spine
- Bulging discs that compress spinal nerve tissue
- An untreated misalignment that produces muscle spasms and strains
- Poor posture or awkward workplace ergonomics that place your back under continuous or repetitive stress
