Back pain comes in many forms. Some patients experience intense pain, while others have nagging, constant, but dull pain. If you have back pain, you will be among 8 out of 10 people in America that suffer from back pain at least once in their life.
Dr. Still, at Family Chiropractic Care, has been helping people with back pain in Longview and Kelso, WA since 1992 to overcome the debilitating pain that can last anywhere from a few days to weeks, months or even years. When you experience back pain, it can be caused by a variety of ailments including:
Muscle Spasms: Often found in the lower back, muscle spasms are typically the result of an injury. Muscle spasms can cause erratic pains to occur.
Strains and Sprains: Incorrect lifting, sports injuries or bending down the wrong way can cause strains and sprains that are often dull and achy.
Disc Injuries: Trauma can cause discs to rupture or degenerate and cause more severe pains.
Sciatica: Often found with those that have to sit for long hours at a time, sciatica causes leg and back pain due to nerve pressure.
