Back Pain FAQs

While back pain is quite common, it shouldn’t just be accepted as a part of life. A visit to Specific Clinic of Chiropractic could be your first step toward back pain relief. These FAQs from our Temple chiropractor explain more about the causes and symptoms of back pain along with chiropractic options for pain relief.


What causes back pain?

Back pain can be caused by acute injuries or chronic conditions. Acute pain is often the result of a traumatic incident like a car accident or sports collision. Such accidents can dislodge spinal bones and joints causing inflammation and stiffness. They can also herniate discs in your spine. If these damaged discs press against spinal nerves, you can experience pain, discomfort, and loss of mobility.  Muscle tears in your back can also cause acute back pain.

Chronic back pain is often the result of repetitive motions or degenerative conditions. Back pain caused by chronic conditions like scoliosis or arthritis can’t be completely eliminated, but it can be managed through chiropractic care.

How does chiropractic care treat back pain?

Chiropractic care offers a natural, non-invasive means of relieving back pain and discomfort. Our Temple chiropractor uses chiropractic adjustments and IST (intersegmental traction) to treat painful back conditions. Chiropractic adjustments help realign misplaced bones and joints to relieve pain, alleviate inflammation, and restore mobility.

What other therapies help with back pain treatment?

We may combine our chiropractic techniques with other natural therapies like electrical stimulation to help with your back pain relief. Our Temple chiropractor may also recommend corrective exercises to strengthen your back muscles and restore flexibility and mobility. After a thorough evaluation of your condition, we will have a better idea of what therapies to include in your treatment. We customize all of our treatment plans to suit our patient’s unique healing needs.

What are the benefits of seeing a chiropractor for back pain relief?

Chiropractic care offers a safe, natural, drug-free means of achieving pain relief. It offers an alternative to back surgery or prescription drugs to managing pain and restoring body function to improve your quality of life. When it comes to pain caused by acute injuries, our goal is to reduce pain and promote natural healing of your injury. Through lifestyle counseling, we teach you healthy living habits that will strengthen your body and improve your overall health to reduce your risk of future injuries.
