The Cause of Spinal Problems 

There are many potential causes of spinal issues. However, several things can increase your chances of experiencing them. Some of the most common underlying causes of spinal problems are:

  • Poor posture
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle imbalance
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor biomechanics
  • Poor mobility in the muscles surrounding the spine

Chiropractors are trained to get to the root cause of your issues and work with you to treat them. The way you walk, your habits, and how much you exercise can all contribute to the health of your spine. When something goes wrong, the spine is the first place that Dr. Ed will look.

How Spine Problems Affect Mobility 

Various issues with the spine can make walking difficult or even very painful. If you suffer from chronic nerve-related back pain, you may stop engaging in activities you normally take part in because you may feel they are too hard on your body. You may even stop going out with family and friends because the pain is too much to bear. You may even begin adjusting the way you do simple things such as taking a shower to make them easier on your body.

Many spinal conditions that cause a reduction in mobility, such as osteoporosis and spondylosis, tend to occur with age. Osteoporosis poses a big threat to mobility since it increases your chances of injuring your spine. Whether you suffer from scoliosis, backaches, or just want to improve your overall health and wellness, there are various techniques such as spinal decompression that can greatly reduce the symptoms you are experiencing. Our chiropractor will make recommendations based on the cause, location, and severity of your pain. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or resorting to invasive surgery, chiropractic care will address your pain at its source.
