Back Pain Relief Q & A

What is back pain?


Most people experience back pain at some point in their lives. Pain in your back can range from mild to severe, potentially preventing you from completing everyday activities. Common signs and symptoms of back pain include:

  • Shooting or stabbing pain
  • Pain that radiates down a leg
  • Pain that improves when lying down
  • Pain that worsens when bending or lifting

Your back pain may only occur in certain situations, like while standing or walking, or it may persist throughout the day. When back pain doesn’t go away on its own or interferes with your daily life, Dr. Sarah and Dr. Frank can help.

What causes back pain?

In many cases, back pain is the result of an acute injury, such as a fall or heavy lifting. Other times, back pain appears gradually with no apparent cause. Dr. Sarah and Dr. Frank treat all types of back pain caused by a broad range of conditions.

Common causes of back pain include:

  • Muscle or ligament strain
  • Bulging or ruptured discs
  • Diseases such as arthritis
  • Spinal irregularities like scoliosis

Depending on your specific condition, Dr. Frank or Dr. Sarah may refer you for X-rays at Scottsdale Medical Imaging. The X-ray images provide important information that helps them develop the most effective treatment plan for you.

Who gets back pain?

Back pain can affect anyone, but this condition is more common as you get older. Dr. Frank and Dr. Sarah offer a variety of gentle, non-force chiropractic techniques to suit the needs of older patients.

Additional factors that may increase your risk of developing back pain include:

  • Lack of exercise
  • Excess weight
  • Improper lifting

The team at Grayhawk Family Chiropractic works with you not only to relieve your back pain now but also to prevent pain from developing in the future.

How is back pain treated?

For additional back pain relief, they also offer physical medicine modalities such as:
