Back pain can be the result of many problems including, sprained ligaments, strained muscles, rupture disks, and irritated joints. While accidents or sports injuries can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements, such as putting on your shoes, can have painful results. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate back pain.
It is common to experience back discomfort at some point in the day. Poor posture, a life of micro traumas, toxins and much more will create subluxations (misalignments) within the spine. These subluxations will lead to pain because of the compressed nerves and discs. If these aches and pains are left untreated, muscle spasms and increasing pain may occur. If left untreated for a long enough period of time, nerves can eventually die which may lead to more serious consequences. At Cordima Chiropractic, Somerville, we are here to rid your body of these subluxations and relieve you pain.
