The Common Cause of Back Pain

For the majority of people, back pain results from misalignments in the spine. Small changes in the position of the spine can lead to swelling and pressure on the nerves exiting the spinal column. This not only causes pain, but can lead to dysfunction in the body.

Small misalignments in the spine are generally known as subluxations. Subluxations are thought to lead to arthritis and degeneration in the spine. This degeneration can lead to loss of height as the discs in the spine break down, pain, and many other symptomatic issues.

It’s common for patients to put off treatment. They hope that the problem will take care of itself, but the reality is that these issues rarely correct themselves. The pain may come and go, but the core problem remains. The longer it sits there the more damage it can cause.

Chiropractic care in Homer Glen provides one of the least invasive, and most cost effective treatment options for back discomfort. Our team at Family Wellness Center is here to help you overcome your nagging symptoms. Call us today to get started on a new path to health.
