What Are the Main Types of Back Pain?
There are various types of back pain that can occur, however, acute lower back pain and chronic lower back pain are the most common. For acute back pain, patients often find improvement through self-care and staying active. If the pain persists after four weeks, you may find chiropractic adjustments beneficial for relief.
While pain medication can offer relief for chronic back, it typically does not improve function. Natural remedies, such as spinal chiropractic adjustments have shown to be more effective. It's important to note that psychological and social factors also play a role in chronic lower back pain. Since complete chronic lower back pain may not be able to be eliminated completely, our chiropractor provides treatment that can improve function and reduce discomfort.
