Back pain is one of the leading causes for not only missing work but also for disability in the workplace. As you get older, the spine and the muscles surrounding it start to get affected from every day activities, especially if engaged in physical activity, lifting, or prolonged seating. Even regular vacuuming can cause asymmetrical posture issues, resulting in spinal misalignment, herniated discs, and strained muscles surrounding the nervous system.

Dr. Colm specializes in the “Neuro Specific Prone” approach to address and alleviate back pain in patients all around the Austin, TX area.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Back pain is not caused by one particular factor or cause. The spine is a structure that is comprised of bone, nerve fibers, tendons, ligaments, risks, etc. all working towards providing proper and rigid framework, integrity, and flexibility, so there are many different factors that can be the reason why a patient experiences back pain. The location, severity, and intensity of back pain can be dependent on many factors.
Sports and athletics can result in overexertion and hyperextension of the back muscles and tendons, which can result in pain even a few days after physical activity. Improper posture is also a leading cause of back pain as it trains the muscles and body to take an unhealthy form. All of these can contribute to the misalignment of the spine, which is then responsible for putting pressure on the nervous system and the surrounding muscles that can causes back pain.
How Chiropractic Care can Help Back Pain
When treating back pain, it’s important to find a health care practitioner who can look at the problem and treat the body as a whole instead of merely treating symptoms or providing temporary relief or fixes. Back pain is caused by the misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine that puts pressure on the nerves, and can aggravate muscular inflammation and herniated discs. And because the cause is due to the structure of the spine itself, back pain should be addressed by first looking at the root cause and treating it with the focus of healing and restoring versus symptom management.
