Back Pain

Back Pain Treatment with our Scottsdale Chiropractor

At Secrest Family Chiropractic, our chiropractor in Scottsdale meets people every day looking for relief from their back pain and dysfunction. Given how common the condition is (as many as 80% of us are expected to experience an episode of back pain at least once), it's no wonder that so many of the services we offer can be tailored and individually implemented to address symptoms and restore function.

Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain can be caused by many daily factors; maybe your back pain begun after a clear incident, such as a car accident, a sports injury, or a personal injury. On the other hand, maybe your back pain came on more gradually, or appeared to "come out of nowhere" during some seemingly simple and non-harmful task (such as bending down to a pencil up off the ground). Understanding the unique factors contributing to your dysfunction can help guide treatment.

The most common risk factors for back pain as noted by the research include:

  • Advancing age (especially men between the ages of 30-55)
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive movement
  • Acute trauma 
  • Heavy lifting and physically demanding jobs
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Cigarette smoking
  • A prior history of back pain or injury

Such factors can increase your risk for a variety of underlying diagnoses, including muscle strains, ligament sprains, spinal joint misalignments, osteoarthritis, sciatica, disc disease,  or disc bulge or herniation. In other cases, back pain may be "idiopathic," meaning there is no clear cause.

Fortunately, a wide variety of back pain diagnoses respond positively to the holistic and natural care offered by a chiropractor.
