Back Pain Treatment Options in Nashville
The source of back pain can originate from a variety of conditions. The most common type of back injury seen here in Rabiei Chiropractic results from the improper lifting of heavy items. This unprepared physical strain on the muscles of the back can cause immediate and excruciating pain. This is also a common result with other routine tasks such as shoveling snow, carrying groceries, even tying your shoes. From our experience in Rabiei Chiropractic, there are many different reasons that cause Back Pain. Chiropractic Care is a safe and gentle alternative to helping you alleviate your back pain in a place local to you here in Rabiei Chiropractic in Nashville area.
Besides these rather regular causes of back pain, there are other categories of conditions that may be causing your specific back pain.
- Pinched Nerves
The nerves located in your spine are very vulnerable, as they need to travel through very narrow passageways. Often, these nerves are susceptible to damage and compression, resulting in excruciating back pain.
Tearing or stretching a ligament, the fibrous band of tissue connecting two or more bones, frequently results in a sprain. These sprains can result in chronic stress to the back muscles.
Slip and falls or lifting injuries resulting in torn ligaments that support the spine often result in back pain.
As years pass, the risk of experiencing back pain is increased based simply on the age of the muscles, joints and spine. Mechanical problems related to flexibility and range of motion can often lead to spasms, disc degeneration and herniation, all resulting in back pain.
The term used when vertebrae lose their normal position, causing pain, trauma, stress and nerves to function improperly.
- Muscle Spasms
Spasm can result from inflammation due to a torn or overworked muscle. This inflammation can lead to severe back pain and immobility.
Improper curvature of the spine, scoliosis, has not been related directly to back pain. There have, however, been reported cases of this gradual curving restricting development of surrounding organs, resulting in increased pain and ongoing health problems.
- Degenerative Disc Disorder
Certain individuals have nerve endings that penetrate more deeply into the outer layer of the disc (annulus fibrosus) than others, making them more susceptible to back pain.
- Acquired Conditions
Certain medical conditions are accompanied by chronic back pain such as arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Spondylolisthesis.
