Common Causes of Back Pain and Injury
Most cases of back pain and injury involve a subluxation—misalignment of vertebrae in the mid, upper or lower back. Misaligned vertebrae pinch nerves and put excess pressure on intervertebral discs. Uneven pressure on these discs often causes bulging and herniated disc pain, including sciatica.
Subluxations also negatively impact the spine’s supporting muscles, tendons, fascia and ligaments. The key to lasting relief is restoring correct spinal alignment. Chiropractic care and treatment restores proper alignment, un-pinching nerves, reducing pressure on discs and helping the back get healthy again—all of which leads to lasting back pain and injury relief without painkillers.
How Do Subluxations cause Back Pain?
- Personal, sports and car accident injuries can suddenly jolt vertebrae out of order.
- Hours slouching over a computer desk can slowly drag vertebrae out of alignment.
- The shifting center of gravity and loosening of ligaments during pregnancy make pregnancy back pain extremely common for expectant mothers.
Chiropractic Care Corrects Subluxations Causing Back Pain
Chiropractic care is extremely effective for back pain. Chiropractor Dr. Evans uses a very specific and specialized chiropractic adjusting technique to bring vertebrae back into alignment. He also coaches patients on proper form for exercise, correct posture for sleep and work, and correct ergonomics for all kinds of situations. This helps you prevent future bouts of mid, upper or low back pain, sciatica, bulging and herniated disc pain and a host of other symptoms that come from pinched nerves.

Back Pain Q&A
What causes back pain?
Back pain is among the most common issues that brings patients to VIDA Chiropractic Studio. That’s not surprising given that at any time 60% to 80% of American adults suffer from back pain, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). The majority of back pain involves the lower, or lumbar, back. Pain can come on suddenly, the result of turning abruptly or trauma caused by an accident or while lifting something heavy. It can also develop gradually as part of the wear and tear that coincides with aging, or repetitive stress incurred on the job or by participating in certain sports, such as weight-lifting or gymnastics. Back pain can also be associated with arthritis and/or scoliosis.
What is Dr. Evans’ approach to alleviating back pain?
Dr. Evans first takes a detailed history and conducts a thorough physical exam, that will likely include x-rays, to diagnose the cause of the pain. Once he establishes that, Dr. Evans devises a personalized program that will include one or more of the following modalities:
- Specific spinal adjustments.
- At home exercise programs to improve flexibility and strengthen core and back muscles.
- Nutrition and diet counseling.
- A posture assessment and/or ergonomic recommendations.
What tips can Dr. Evans offer for preventing back pain?
Dr. Evans is a major advocate of preventive measures and offers the following tips for avoiding back pain.
- Maintain a healthy weight. Excessive weight puts extra stress on the back.
- Remain active.
- Properly warm up before exercising or participating in sports.
- Establish and maintain good posture, both while sitting and standing.
- Avoid, shoes that fit poorly, along with high heels.
- Sleep on a mattress with adequate support.
- Rely on leg muscles, not back muscles, when lifting heavy items.
- Make sure that your work space is ergonomic.
What is an x-ray motion study?
A motion x-ray is a valuable tool at VIDA Chiropractic Studio. It is a specialized x-ray system which uses technology to enable Dr. Evans to view a patient’s spine in motion. The procedure is conducted with the patient standing and moving in a weight bearing position, as x-rays are taken. Even more important is how an x-ray motion study allows the patient to easily and objectively identify exactly where their problems are with relation to their spine.
