Common Questions on Lower Back Pain
Back pain can bring your life to a standstill due to restricted flexibility and mobility. The sooner you get treatment, the sooner you can find pain relief. At Colonia Spine & Wellness, we provide chiropractic treatment for lower back pain issues. These questions explain more about the causes of back pain and how our Colonia, NJ, chiropractor can help with relief.
What causes back pain?
Accidental injuries, life, work habits, and chronic conditions can contribute to back pain. Acute back pain is often due to a sudden injury. Chronic back pain may develop over time due to years of poor posture, repeated motions, or heavy lifting. Chronic pain can also be due to osteoarthritis, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease.
Traumatic injuries from a sport, auto, or workplace accident can lead to:
- bulging or herniated disks
- spinal misalignments
- sprained or strained muscles and joints
- soft tissue bruising
All of which can cause lower back pain. A visit to our Colonia, NJ, chiropractor can help determine the cause of your pain, so you can get the appropriate treatment.
Are there factors that can increase my risk of lower back pain?
Age, obesity, and pregnancy can increase your risk of developing lower back pain due to weak back muscles or excess pressure on your spine. In addition, a history of chronic back conditions puts you at greater risk of lower back pain.
How does chiropractic care treat lower back pain?
Chiropractic techniques and therapies like adjustments, spinal decompression, massage, and rehab exercises are designed to minimize musculoskeletal back pain and help your body recover. If your pain results from misalignments in your spine, we’ll use adjustments to restore proper alignment to your spinal system. These alignments relieve pressure from muscles, joints, and nerves to ease your pain. Massage reduces muscle tension, pain, and increases blood flow to damaged tissues quicker. Corrective exercises help restore your flexibility, range of motion, and mobility.

Chiropractic care uses natural means to treat lower back pain and promote recovery. Our treatments are non-invasive and drug-free, so there’s no risk of getting addicted to painkillers. Instead, we’ll treat your pain and the source of your pain for long-term relief.
