Upper 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.
