Back and Joint Pain Q & A
What causes back pain?
There are many causes of back pain that a chiropractor can treat without surgery or medication, such as:
A disc is a malleable cushion that sits between your bony vertebrae to keep them flexible. If one of these discs bulges through the hard exterior of your spinal column, it can cause chronic pain and irritate nearby nerves.
A sudden twist, jerking movement, or lifting a heavy object can strain the muscles and ligaments in your back. Not only does this lead to back pain, it can also cause muscle spasms.
Spinal stenosis is a condition that narrows the spinal canal, leading to debilitating nerve pain. It’s typically caused by degenerating spinal discs.
Osteoporosis is a chronic disease that causes brittle bones. Without treatment, your bones can easily break with osteoporosis.
What causes joint pain?
Joints connect your bones to one another, giving them mobility and the flexibility to move. When joints or the cartilage that cushions them are damaged, your bones can start to rub together, causing pain and stiffness while limiting your range of motion. Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:
Arthritis is inflammation that often affects the joints in the hands, wrists, ankles, and knees. Telltale signs of arthritis are swelling of the joints, limited range of motion, redness, and joints that feel warm to the touch.
Bursitis is an inflammatory condition that causes swelling around the pads that cushion the joints. It particularly affects the knees, hips, and elbows.
Tendinitis causes painful inflammation and irritation in the tendons that connect your bones and muscles. This can lead to chronic knee pain, hip pain, or shoulder pain.
Joint pain particularly affects the knees, which often take the brunt of the impact during physical activities, such as running and walking.
