Lower Back Pain FAQs

Back pain is a common issue for many people. This pain can result from a variety of causes, ranging from injuries to stress. Chiropractic care can be an extremely beneficial and non-invasive way to manage, eliminate, and reduce pain and discomfort. A chiropractor can evaluate your back pain and determine the best course of action to create more comfort and reduce pain.


Identifying the cause of your back pain can help determine the most effective approach to alleviating it. Back pain may also extend to include hip pain, leg pain, and nerve issues like sciatica. At Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center, we can help you increase function in your lower spine to manage, eliminate, or reduce your pain.

What are the common causes of back pain?

Some common causes of back pain include mechanical issues, joint problems, past injuries, and strains. However, the cause of low back pain is often not structural, making it difficult to pinpoint the reason for the pain. Many of these issues have the potential to improve on their own. A thorough evaluation is often needed to determine the source of the pain.

Is back pain hereditary?

Back pain can have many different causes but hasn't been linked to heredity. However, other underlying issues or activities that are common among family members may result in family members experiencing similar issues with back pain. Heredity is generally not a common reason for back pain.

Is there any way to prevent back pain?

Developing a strong core through exercise and proper lifting techniques can help reduce your chances of experiencing back pain. However, there may be moments when an accident or unexpected incident results in back pain. Nevertheless, many of these incidents are temporary, and the pain resolves on its own or with treatment.

Maintaining a healthy weight and remaining active through exercise and normal movement and activity are good ways to combat back pain. Exercise and healthy weight management help with developing and maintaining strong musculature that supports the spine. Once again, these practices diminish the chance of developing chronic back pain issues.
