Back pain can occur suddenly due to an acute injury or develop slowly over time. Without treatment, chronic back pain symptoms can persist for years. Whether you suffer from acute or chronic back pain, a chiropractor can help provide relief. At Enhanced Living Chiropractic in Greer, Inman, Travelers Rest, and Simpsonville, we offer chiropractic treatment for musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Here are some answers to common questions we often receive about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of back pain.
What causes back pain?
Back pain can be caused by poor posture over time. It can also result from lifting heavy objects or engaging in strenuous activities. Chronic conditions like arthritis, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and degenerative disc disease can contribute to back pain. Additionally, obesity can strain back muscles and lead to pain. Back injuries are another common cause of pain.
Besides pain, what other symptoms can you experience with low back pain? In addition to pain, you may experience the following symptoms:
