Back pain is an extremely common complaint and is considered the second most common cause of disability in American adults. Equally as alarming are the number of people who suffer in silence and still go about their daily activities. While it is true that our sedentary lifestyles and the trend towards sitting for eight or more hours a day at work contribute to back pain, that is no reason to accept back pain as just another part of life.
Long-lasting relief from back pain is possible and it doesn’t have to involve prescription drugs or invasive surgery. Back pain treatments centering around chiropractic care are all-natural, non-invasive, drug-free options that can provide a lifetime of relief.

How Chiropractic Care Relieves Back Pain
In many cases, back pain is caused by underlying issues with the spine and muscles. When the spine is out of alignment, whether due to poor posture, an injury, strain, or overuse, the joints, nerves, and muscles can all suffer. The spine may compress nerves, leading to nerve pain and dysfunction. A misaligned spine might also pull muscles, ligaments, and tissues slightly out of their neutral position. The muscle, tissues, or ligaments might then overcompensate and cause you to feel pain.
When our Orange City chiropractor adjusts the spine to restore proper alignment, tension and torque on these areas is reduced, nerves are released, function improves, and pain diminishes. The best part is, this all happens naturally! There’s no need for narcotics or prescription medications, which just mask the pain and don’t treat the underlying problem.
By realigning the spine through chiropractic adjustments, we can help restore normal body function, provide proper balance to muscles and ligaments, and reduce tissue inflammation. Out of the number of options for treating back pain, chiropractic care is one of the most effective and longest-lasting because it actually helps the body get stronger and function as nature intended.
