Back pain affects 80% of Americans at some time in their lives. Back pain can also come in many forms. Whether you are affected by upper back pain, lower back pain or middle back pain, it can be anywhere from annoying to debilitating and should be take serious.
Pain is a signal that something is not right in your body.
Some people choose to mask or cover up the symptoms with medications or pills. That’s like covering your eyes so you don’t see something you dislike. But it doesn’t make the problem go away.
Two Common Causes
The facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone is a very nerve sensitive are and are a common cause of back pain. When the facet joints don’t move correctly they can cause back pain.
Your spinal discs can also be part of the problem causing your back pain. This can range from degeneration, herniation, bulging and rupture of the spinal disc. This can in turn cause irritation and inflammation to the nerves that cause you back pain.
We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, other choices include:

Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)
Medicine (Numbs the body.)
Surgery (The most serious last resort.)
