Learn about Your Back Pain and Find Relief at the Lifetime Family Health Center
Back pain is incredibly common. Estimates show that most of us, at least 7 out of 10, will have at least one episode of back pain at some point in our lives! At the Lifetime Family Health Center, serving people from Grapevine, Southlake, Colleyville, and surrounding, TX, communities, our chiropractor Dr. Jay Harrison has so many things to offer people looking to heal from their frustrating debility and dysfunction.
Why Is Back Pain So Common?
One reason why back pain is so common is because its major risk factors are extremely common as well. Research suggests that the following things frequently lead to or exacerbate upper, middle, or lower back pain:
- Excessive sitting
- Repetitive bending, lifting, twisting of the spine (e.g., heavy backpacks)
- Family history
- Slip and falls, sports injury, and other types of trauma
Unfortunately, if you've had an episode of back pain before, you're more likely to experience it again!
The spinal system is also extremely large, involving hundreds of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and more. With so many working parts and so many environmental factors affecting it, it's no wonder that the spine is often a major source of pain, stiffness, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
Common Underlying Conditions Associated with Back Pain
In many cases, the exact cause of your back pain is not clear, but even idiopathic cases can respond positively to chiropractic treatment.
When a diagnosis is possible, our chiropractor often finds:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Nerve impingement, such as sciatica or radiculopathy
- Spinal stenosis
- Joint dislocation
