Back discomfort varies depending on the type of injury and extension of the lesion.

Here are some of the common symptoms, causes and available chiropractic treatments.

Symptoms

Neural Inflammation

Common symptoms are weakness in legs, difficulty to walk or put the heelpiece on the floor, or even the sensation of tingling in the legs. The pain can be very intense, prejudicing the movements.

Scoliosis

Common symptoms are difference in the shoulders, difference on each waist curve, or line of the hips. Depending on the column deviation angle, the pain can be intense and disabling, also compromising the right functionality of the lungs and digestive organs. Balance and restriction of some movements are also possible symptoms in this case.

kyphosis

Common symptoms are significant curve on the up neck, depression, intense pain on the neck or upper back, physical deformity, breathing difficulties, stiffness, reduced mobility, a lack of balance, and pain in the upper part of the column.

Lordosis

Common symptoms are exaggerated curve of the low back that eventually causes low back pain, restringing the movements and causing stretch of abdominal muscles, and consequently stiffness of the neck, as the spine vertebras are all interlinked and compensating each other trajectories.

Hernial discs

Common symptoms are pain in-bending over, tingling sensation, eventual cramps, low back pain or back pain during the night, difficulty standing on a straight position, inability to stand on one leg, difficulties in holding the urine, discouragement to perform routine activities, headaches, difficulties in lifting an object.

osteoporosis

Common symptoms are decreasing of the height in two or three centimeters, pain, weakness, and fragility, as well as fallen shoulders, or loss of bone structure.

Arthrosis

Common symptoms are excessive rigidity of the articulation, difficulty of mobility, articular pain that gets worse through the day to night, swelling, and severe pain with the climate changing, thickening of the fingers.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Common symptoms are excessive rigidity of the articulations, swelling, physical deformity, anemia, fatigue, lumps or redness on the skin that can also present a bit higher temperature.

Causes Section

Traumatism

Different traumas can occur during our life, such as falls, accidents, and car or moto beats. These things may be a result of neglecting actions or unfortunate episodes. The consequences can vary from broken bones to neural inflammation, from arthroses to losing the movements of the legs and arms.

Posture

A bad corporal conscience, or a lack of the right position can result in severe danger in the column, weighty bags or backpacks can also generate lateral differences and hard pain across the years. The natural consequences of bad posture are scoliosis, kyphosis, or lordosis.

Obesity

Excess of corporal weight and absence of muscular tonus increase the potential of demanding by the spine; little and insistent traumas on the vertebral column can be painful and generate from neural inflammation to hernial disk.

Stress

High levels of stress, urban violence, delusions, and family problems are all factors that can cause chronical back pain. Studies show that people that suffer daily psychological or romantic problems don’t have the necessary recovering at night, which may result in excessive muscle contraction and high levels of acids on the muscle fiber. In this case, the main problem may be inflammation and rotation in the central axis, a kind of scoliosis that can come associated with kyphosis, as the person may also present some level of depression too.

Getting Old

One of the most recurrent problem during the ageing process is the thin layer of the bones, called osteoporosis, which causes the break of the bones more easily.

Shorter distance between the inter-vertebral disks is another huge issue that causes the compression of the nerves, with the clamping of the sciatic nerve, one of the most common related problems by older adults. Arthrosis, most of the time, a result of chronical inflammation during the years, causes the lack of mobility of the articulation, several postural problems and a double effort from different parts of the body to produce movement or even keep it stood.

treatments

Chiropractic is a pretty effective treatment when it comes to pain and spinal deficiencies. It is widely used to relieve symptoms as well as cure the cause of most of the ailments affected in this region, such as cervical pain, low back pain, herniated discs, sciatica compression, organic and physical central nervous system imbalances due to poor posture, overexertion, exertion by repetitive stress, and emotional imbalances.Its treatment is very effective for decompressing nerves, and aids in nervous system recovery, body alignment, and better organ functioning. It can help a lot as concomitant treatment with the others prescribed by the doctor or physiotherapist. An anti-inflammatory diet may also sound good and increase efficiency on the treatment.

A 8 degrees adjustment helped in decreasing stress to the body and an overall increased energy levels. Better framework of the skeletal system improved natural posture. This is the key to treating root cause of the problems, and not just symptoms.
