Back Pain Q & A

Why do I have back pain?

The vertebrae that make up your spine are surrounded by ligaments, muscles, cushioning discs, and other components that help you have fluid back movements. You also have several nerves that branch off your spinal column and extend into your limbs. 

While lower back pain is most common, discomfort can go all the way up into your neck. If you have back pain, it might be a sign of:

  • Arthritic or osteoporotic deterioration 
  • Herniated, ruptured, or bulged disc
  • Pinched nerve, as with sciatica 
  • Strains or sprains 
  • Scoliosis 

Your risk of back pain increases if you’re overweight, have diabetes, or are older. No matter what’s causing your back pain though, the team at Clarksville Chiropractic Center can help. 

When should I have a back pain exam?

Back pain is a sign that one or more of the components of your spine is injured or isn’t lining up correctly. The caring providers at Clarksville Chiropractic Center encourage you to undergo a comprehensive back pain exam, including any necessary X-ray imaging, if you experience any of the following problems:

  • Muscle aches, knots, or spasms
  • Pain or burning that radiates down your extremities
  • Muscle weakness, such as difficulty walking or holding objects

It’s particularly important to have a back pain exam as soon as possible if your symptoms are associated with trauma, such as a car accident or sports injury.
