Why Back Pain is So Common
Back pain is one of the most common causes of disability. It is common because the risk factors for back pain are common, too! These include advancing age, sedentary activity, heavy lifting or manual labor, obesity, smoking, and stress. Men between the ages of 30 and 50 are among the most common back pain sufferers, but this type of issue can affect people of all ages and backgrounds.
Conditions That Cause Back Pain
Leading conditions for back pain include:
- Muscle spasms and strains
- Degenerative disc disease
- Disc herniation or disc bulge
- Nerve compression (e.g., lumbar radiculopathy or sciatica—which can also lead to leg pain)
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of spaces in the spinal canal)
- Spondylolisthesis (a vertebral bone shifts forward relative to the one beneath it)
How Our Chiropractor in Santa Cruz CA Alleviates Back Pain
Did you know organizations like the CDC recommend conservative services like exercise for back pain treatment BEFORE riskier options like opioids and surgery? Our chiropractor in Santa Cruz proudly offers customized exercise programs that help you address your back pain needs at your specific stage of recovery, whether that's reducing inflammation, improving spinal alignment, alleviating spasms and pain, or improving core coordination and strength.
In addition to custom exercise programs, we use a combination of manual techniques like chiropractic adjustments and modalities like hydrotherapy massage, spinal decompression, and electrical stimulation to relieve pain at its source and promote whole body wellness. We also offer practical nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help you make better choices in your day-to-day life that will benefit your spinal health.
