Back pain is a common occurrence for many people. It can often be caused by back injuries, back strains or even obesity. There are 4 warning signs that it's time to see a chiropractor for back pain relief:
The Back Pain Gets Worse With Movement
Back pain that worsens when you move is telling you something. If the back pain gets worse with movement, it could be a sign of back strain or back injury. This type of back pain usually decreases as soon as your stress on it disappears. If sitting still helps - Sitting down can often ease back aches and pains.
No Matter What You Do The Back Pain Never Goes Away
If back pain never goes away, it could be a back injury. This kind of back pain can often cause some muscle atrophy and weakness if left untreated for too long. Back injuries are also the most common reason back surgeries become necessary in older people.
You've Been Experiencing Back Discomfort For More Than 3 Months
If back pain has been going on for more than three months, something is wrong. Back injuries and back strains only tend to last a week or two at most before they start getting better. If your back pain goes beyond that point it could be a sign of back arthritis instead.
Your Back Pain Is Affecting Other Parts Of Your Body
If back pain affects your other joints, it could be a sign of back arthritis. Back arthritis is particularly painful because it can affect all parts of the back and spread to just about any joint you've got in your body.
