causes of back pain

Back pain. Maybe you’re lucky enough to not have experienced it yet, but as you grow older, your chances become higher. Dr. Gopual at Natural Care Chiropractic in Lindenhurst, IL, recognizes that while back pain is common, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer through it. Your trusted chiropractors are skilled in chiropractic care and pain management and will help get you back on the road to a pain-free life.

Some common causes of back pain include:

-Lack of exercise


-Improper lifting

-Excess weight

-Skeletal irregularities

-Muscle or ligament strain


-Bulging or ruptured disks


There are other risk factors associated with back pain, such as certain diseases, psychological conditions, and smoking. In some cases, back pain can be severe enough that only a chiropractor’s adjustments and treatment plan will help. If your back pain does not improve with rest and over-the-counter prescriptions or radiates down either of your legs, causing weakness, numbness, or tingling, it’s time to book an appointment with Dr. Gopaul.
