What is Chronic Back Pain?
Causes of Chronic Back Pain
The cause of chronic back pain can be as individual as the person who is experiencing it, but there are typically two general areas of causation:
Degeneration. Normal wear and tear on the spine. This usually comes with aging
Mechanical Causes. These are more varied but usually happen when the structures in the spine, including the bones, nerves and muscles become dysfunctional in the way they are working together. Any slight misalignment of these delicate structures can cause problems.
- Sprains and Strains.
- Intervertebral disc degeneration
- Herniated and ruptured discs
- Radiculopathy or pinched nerves
Managing Chronic Back Pain With Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is effective for managing chronic back pain. Manipulation of the spinal structures helps to restore the normal alignment and function in the spine, taking pressure off of the nerves and allowing the body to heal the inflamed soft tissues. The physical therapy modalities we perform in our Tulsa office help to relieve inflammation and increase blood flow to damaged tissues so that healing can take place.

Spinal adjustment. Spinal manipulation helps realign the vertebrae and relieve pressure on the spine. Spinal adjustments help improve the functioning of the central nervous system, which can help speed the healing process.
