Q & A

What is back pain?

Back pain is an uncomfortable feeling in your upper, mid, or lower back, often caused by a disease, injury, or age-related wear. Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab offers chiropractic back pain treatment to help you avoid invasive procedures or addictive pain medicine.

What does back pain feel like?

If you have upper, mid, or lower back pain, you may notice the following signs or symptoms:

  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Limited range of motion
  • Dull ache
  • Radiating pain
  • Sharp discomfort
  • Shooting pain
  • Tingling 
  • Numbness
  • Muscle aches
  • Weakness
  • Muscle tightness or spasms

Back pain could be mild and go away with rest and home care, or severe and need medical intervention to be ameliorated entirely. See the Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab team at the first sign of a problem.

What are the risk factors for back pain?

Back pain is common, and anyone can develop it. However, certain factors can increase your risk of experiencing it, including:

  • Older age
  • Lack of exercise
  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Physically demanding job
  • Heavy lifting
  • Excess body weight
  • Smoking
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Poor posture
  • Scoliosis (curvature of the spine)
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures
  • Muscle or ligament strains
  • Ruptured or bulging discs

Getting regular exercise, using proper techniques when lifting heavy objects, maintaining a healthy body weight, and not smoking help reduce your risk of developing back pain.

How does my doctor diagnose the cause of back pain?

To find out what’s causing back pain and treat it properly, the Greenlight Chiropractic & Wellness Lab team reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests, bone scans, nerve testing, X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure.
