Back Pain : Woodbury Chiropractic Center

Pain of any kind is a sign something’s wrong. Some Woodbury people silence the pain with drugs. But that would be like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!

There is no more common problem known to humanity than the back ache. It is the problem that Woodbury people hear about, talk about or suffer with. Every human is subject to back pain. It can strike suddenly, unexpectedly and often without any apparent cause. There is no better way to illustrate the chiropractic concept than to consider this most common chiropractic complaint.

Almost every form of back pain is a result of mechanical malfunction within the spinal structure which causes pressure, irritation or actual pinching of the spinal nerves. The symptoms of spinal nerve irritation may vary from an occasional muscle twinge, a deep throbbing pain, severe neuritis or symptoms of organic disease. A single pinching or subluxation may cause pain anywhere along the spinal nerve.

Two Common Causes of Back Pain

The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right.

The discs between spinal bones can be involved. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Your Choices to help Back Pain

We’ve helped many Woodbury people with safe and natural chiropractic care. Other choices include:

Ignore it (Spinal problems worsen.)
