Understanding Back Pain and Its Causes

Are you experiencing back pain? Pain is your body’s way of signaling that something isn’t right. Ignoring it or simply masking the symptoms with pain relievers may lead to further complications. At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we understand the importance of addressing the root cause of your discomfort.

Common Culprits of Back Pain

Back pain can stem from various sources, two of the most common being the facet joints and spinal discs. The facet joints, located on the back side of each spinal bone, can cause pain when they’re not moving correctly. Additionally, trauma can cause the soft material within spinal discs to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Your Options for Relief

When it comes to managing back pain, you have choices. While some may opt to ignore it or resort to temporary solutions like bed rest or medication, these approaches may only provide short-term relief or potentially worsen the problem. At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we offer safe and natural chiropractic care as an effective alternative.

The Chiropractic Solution

Chiropractic adjustments aim to improve spinal function, allowing discs and soft tissues to heal while reducing nerve involvement and easing pain. Our non-invasive approach focuses on restoring your body’s natural ability to heal itself, promoting long-term stability and wellness.
