Why Do I Have Back Pain in Calgary?

The exact cause of each individual's back pain can be very different. Due to the number of muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments in the area, the back is a common area for an injury to occur. Weight, posture, sports, stress, lifting, car accidents, and injuries are all possible reasons for back pain. There are also conditions that can lead to back pain such as arthritis and osteoporosis. Some diseases that are influential to back pain can stem from a disease that starts in the internal organs.  

Chiropractic at Elevate Life to the Rescue

Chiropractic is an effective and safe way to help treat a variety of back pain. There will be less pain and more mobility with chiropractic care. Patients are also often able to stop taking prescription medications, therefore eliminating the side effects those drugs have. Chiropractors focus on finding the cause of the pain rather than prescribing a drug that will mask the symptoms. This approach aims to actually cure the problem as opposed to providing short term relief.

Chiropractors know that changes in your lifestyle will also help in your back pain prevention efforts. Some of these include keeping your weight in a good range, staying away from sitting down too much, staying active, drinking lots of water, stretching regularly, wearing flat shoes, and having proper posture. Back pain should be a long lost memory if you follow these steps and regularly see a chiropractor.
