Common Causes and Symptoms of Back Pain

You may not always know exactly what's causing your back pain. When a diagnosis can be made, it often points to muscle strains, spinal ligament sprains, disc herniation, disc bulge, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, vertebral subluxations, and spinal nerve root compression. Other conditions, such as fibromyalgia and even depression, can present with back pain, too. 

People with back pain often complain of a sore, achy, tender, and stiff spine. If nerve impingement is involved, they may also have numbness, tingling, and pain in an arm or limb. 

Why do so many people have back pain, to begin with? A lot of it comes down to lifestyle: frequent sitting, slouching, unhealthy eating, lack of exercise, smoking, and obesity are all risk factors for back pain. Other factors include advancing age, genetics, and occupation (whether you have a sedentary job or a job that requires a lot of heavy lifting, twisting, or bending of the spine). 

How Our Kent Chiropractor Diagnoses and Treats Back Pain

As a Kent chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Jordan Jex relies on comprehensive and insightful patient history taking, physical examination tests, and imaging studies as indicated in order to diagnose back pain conditions. He also devises treatment plans which are fully customized to the individual. 

  • Chiropractic adjustments can realign the spine, reduce tension in the body, and ease pain via the neurologically-mediated release of analgesic hormones
  • Massage therapy eases physical and mental stress, reduces scar tissue and painful fascial adhesions, and improves blood flow
  • Corrective exercises prescribed specifically to increase the range of motion (especially in the shoulders and hips), restore core function, and improve strength and conditioning can help you function better at work, at the gym, and at home

The services we offer also prevent back pain, as well! For instance, we can advise you on ways to make more balanced nutritional and lifestyle choices that promote spine health (increasing exercise, avoiding pro-inflammatory foods, etc.).
