Over 80% of adults will experience back pain sometime—that’s almost everybody! Whether it’s mid, upper or lower back pain, it’s always terrible. If you hurt your back, there are effective, natural, non-surgical treatment paths to recovery that provide relief and enhance your overall wellness—right here in San Antonio. Chiropractic Care at Pinnacle Wellness (catch us on Facebook) is the place to start for back injury and pain relief.
Causes of back pain are almost as numerous as the people suffering, but these are some common causes:
Low back pain stems from several sources including injury, poor posture (while working, lifting, sitting and even sleeping), and also pregnancy. Many pregnant women struggle with low back pain from their shifting center of gravity and other pregnancy changes. Chiropractic care is very helpful for pregnant moms because it is drug free and effective.
Low back pain can also come from bulging and herniated disc injuries—these can happen during a sudden injury, or even just bending over to pick something up if poor posture habits have caused a bulging disc to suddenly become a herniated disc.
While the mid and upper back areas are less susceptible to injury than the lower back, several conditions can cause pain here too. Strained muscles, poor posture (particularly while using technology), osteoarthritis and scoliosis can hurt this area of the back, even leading to more bulging and herniated disc problems.
At Pinnacle Wellness, we address all of these back pain causes through natural, drug-free chiropractic care, massage therapy and other wellness and recovery-boosting techniques that help you get lasting back pain relief. Your San Antonio chiropractor corrects spinal misalignments that pinch nerves and discs so your nervous system can boost your recovery and help you heal without surgery.
Massage therapy helps to relieve muscle and other soft tissue injury, complementing improved posture and stimulating your overall wellness. Your chiropractor will also teach you exercises, stretches and wellness tips you can use at home to further your long-term recovery and health naturally!
