Back Pain

lady on couch with low back pain Back pain is a common complaint that can range from being mildly bothersome to downright debilitating. This ailment can be caused by various factors, including poor posture, muscle strain, sports-related injuries, arthritis or underlying medical conditions. Poor posture can put extra strain on the back muscles and ligaments, leading to muscle tension, joint problems, and inflammation, which can all cause back pain. At Central Avenue Health Centre, we usually see patients with back discomfort from the following:

  • Positional movements that can cause occupational injury
  • Arthritis
  • Disc/joint degeneration
  • Old injuries
  • Herniated disc

Our Approach

Precise chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine functions, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can recede, and improved stability can return. In addition to chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, heat and cold therapy, and stretching can help alleviate back discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t back pain normal?

No! Pain of any kind, at any age, is an indication that something is wrong. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While discomfort may go away in time, if the underlying issue isn’t addressed, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more challenging and expensive to resolve.

How does chiropractic work?

You are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. When interference is removed from the nervous system, the body can function optimally, and you can feel your best.

How soon can a person expect to feel better in your care?

A person can experience symptomatic relief after just one chiropractic adjustment. However, some people might react differently to treatment, but can still expect to feel better within a couple weeks.
