Get Personalized Back Pain Treatment from Our Clinton Township Chiropractor
Does your back feel achy and stiff? Do even simple tasks like carrying groceries or lasting through a full day at work leave you sore and exhausted? Back pain is extremely common and can disrupt virtually every aspect of your life. At the Guzzardo Chiropractic Center, our Clinton Township chiropractor helps people with back pain every day find relief. We take it one step beyond symptom relief, though, by helping our patients understand why their back pain happens and what can be done to prevent it from recurring.
Why Do I Have Back Pain? Risk Factors and Causes
Research suggests back pain affects most people at some point in their lifetime. That said, certain people seem to be more at risk, including:
- Men around the ages of 30 and 50
- People who smoke
- People who sit a lot
- People who are overweight
- People who have physically demanding occupations or perform a lot of heavy lifting, bending, and twisting
- People who are exposed to vibrational forces or traumatic accidents
Unfortunately, another known risk factor for back pain is having a prior history of back pain! In other words, having an episode of back pain once increases your chances of having it again in the future. That's why seeking help for your signs and symptoms like stiffness, muscle spasms, and radiating pain and numbness in an arm or leg is so important for your long-term health. A chiropractor can help you identify your specific contributing factors and address them so you'll be less likely to have chronic or recurring issues.
