Back pain is one of the most common ailments that medical professionals see in their patients. There are a multitude of reasons why an individual might experience a bout of back pain. Some of the most common reasons are a sedentary lifestyle, including long periods of sitting, and poor muscle tone due to lack of exercise. Some individuals attempt a "weekend warrior" project only to find they put enough undue stress on their body to the point where their back responded with intense, painful muscle spasms.
Just as there is not necessarily one road that leads to back pain, often there is not necessarily one answer that will completely relieve an individual's pain either, although in some cases one chiropractic adjustment does work wonders. If you are having a bout of back pain and/or muscle spasms and cannot seem to shake it off, you need to have your condition evaluated by a medical professional.
If you make an appointment with a chiropractor, they will typically ask you about your medical history and take a set of X-rays to help determine where your pain is originating from. They will probably also perform a patient exam to determine if you have any subluxations along your spine. In some instances, one chiropractic adjustment might be enough to completely relieve your pain. In other instances, your chiropractor might design a comprehensive program that includes a series of regular adjustments, hot and cold therapies you can use at home, massage therapy treatments, home exercises designed to stretch and strengthen your muscles and more. They might also suggest ways you can reduce the strain on your spine by teaching you the proper way to lift heavy items or proper sitting techniques.
