Back Pain

Millions of Americans suffer from back pain every year; besides the common cold, it’s the most common reason to call out of work. That’s a lot of injured backs.


Our Lexington chiropractic clinic offers safe, effective, and efficient solutions that can minimize your back pain quickly and get you back to your daily routine.

Why Do I Have Back Pain?

The spine and back are critical to correct movement patterns. They support us and allow us to turn, bend, twist, and so much more, and many of these movements are performed dozens, if not hundreds, of times per day for most of us. 

With this massive responsibility and activity, back and spinal injuries are more a question of when than if. 

The spine is incredibly intricate and complex, with 33 vertebrae (bones) that are each separated by cushions called discs and surrounded by muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons. All of these things work together meticulously to provide safe movement and body stability. 

When the structure is compromised, the entire body is put at risk. Walking, sleeping, sitting, working; everything can become much more demanding. But chiropractic care has natural services to alleviate your pain, fix the injury, and maintain your body’s health.


Common reasons for back pain include: 

  • Repetitive movements
  • Herniated discs
  • Disc bulge
  • Spine compression
  • Back sprains and strains
  • Pulled muscles
  • Bruised tissue


These injuries can be nurtured back to health and full function with chiropractic guidance. An effective and quick remedy can only take place once the underlying cause is determined. Whether by sudden force or due to ongoing poor practices, we have methods to get your spine aligned and your back balanced so it can best support you.

Should I See a Chiropractor for My Back Pain?

Chiropractors have the unique skill set of assessing and targeting where your back pain stems from, utilizing their extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and the spine. Millions of people seek chiropractic treatments for their back pain annually, so if you’re suffering from back pain, we think we can help.

Chiropractic is non-invasive, relies on the body’s empowerment, and strengthens the soft tissues to reduce the likelihood of reinjury of the spine or back.


We help back pain patients struggling with:

  • Pain in the low back (lumbar pain)
  • Sharp, dull, stabbing, or throbbing back pain
  • Back stiffness
  • Tightness along the shoulder blades
  • Sore, tender, or aching back muscles
  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility in the back
  • Numbness or tingling in the back
  • Radiating pain from the back into the shoulders or neck


These symptoms can affect those who are highly active and those who are sedentary; with each, finding the source of the pain is necessary to end it.


Common reasons we get back pain include:

  • Poor posture and ergonomics
  • Improperly setup work station
  • Overuse injury
  • Athletic injury
  • Pregnancy or weight gain
  • Hit or blow to the head
  • Working at a computer all-day
  • Work-related injury
  • Slip and fall
  • Inactivity or sitting all-day
  • Prolonged activity
