Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Most back pain occurs in the lower part of your spine, largely in the first five vertebrae or the lower lumbar region. Your lower back supports the weight of your entire upper body, so it’s common to experience pain in your lower back due to overexertion and conditions like:

  • Muscle or tendon strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Heavy lifting or twisting your spine awkwardly
  • Sports injuries
  • Age-related disc degeneration
  • Herniated or ruptured discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Car accidents
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Myofascial pain
  • Poor posture

If you suspect that you have any of these issues or conditions, call Superior Physical Medicine and schedule an appointment right away.

When should I see a physician for back pain?

If you experience back pain, it’s a good idea to schedule an evaluation with the team at Superior Physical Medicine. They can quickly determine the underlying cause of your back pain so they can prescribe an effective chiropractic treatment plan that is coupled with physical therapy and tailored to your exact needs.
