It’s summer, and we all associate this time of the year with fun and adventures. It is one of those seasons where we plan and spend a lot of time outdoors with friends, family, and even by ourselves. Unfortunately, many of us have had to cut back on our summer fun, reducing it to either very little or none at all because of unbearable pain. Sad, right? But it doesn’t have to be this way. Back pain does not have to control how you spend your summer days this year. You can find a chiropractor in Ithaca and Cortland to help you reclaim your summer.
What Causes Back Pain?
There are several factors that could account for the back pain you are experiencing. Some of these include, but are not limited to:
● Arthritis- can affect the lower back and cause intense pain by narrowing the space around the spinal cord.
● Muscle or ligament strain - continuously lifting heavy objects or a sudden awkward movement such as a vehicular accident or a fall can strain back muscles and spinal ligaments.
● Ruptured disks-disks act as cushions between the bones in your spine. When the soft material inside a disk bulges and presses on a nerve, it causes a pain sensation.
Whatever the cause, chiropractic pain management is typically an efficient method for addressing back pain.
