Types of Back Pain Houston

There are several types of back pain, but the most common types are acute low-back pain and chronic low-back pain.

Acute back pain

Patients with acute low-back pain often improve on their own, through self-care, and stay active. If acute low back pain persist after four weeks, you can consider non-drug therapies, including Chiropractic adjustment.

Chronic back pain

Long-term use of pain medication usually does not improve functioning for patients with chronic low-back pain. Natural therapies, including spinal chiropractic adjustments prove more beneficial. Psychological and social factors also contribute to chronic low-back pain. Most patients with chronic low-back pain will not become pain-free so treatment should be more focused on improving function and reducing pain.

Causes of Back Pain Houston

The human spine is a complex structure of discs, joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. There are several possible causes for back pain or discomfort. Most back pain sufferers don’t seek help to find out the cause of their back pain thinking that the pain will go away on its own and only get medical assistance if the pain intensifies and become unbearable.


Strained Muscles or Ligaments

Muscles, ligaments and tendons get strained when they are pulled or torn, which can damage fibers resulting in pain. This is more common among athletes and weekend warriors who engage in physically-demanding activities. However, you can still suffer from pulled muscle or ligaments while doing things, such as lifting, at home or at work.



When you are stressed, you become tensed, your blood pressure and heart rate rise and your muscles tighten. Constant stress causes your muscles to become sore and weak.


Vertebral Subluxation

Vertebral subluxation is a result of the spine in which alignment, movement integrity and physiological functions are compromised due to functional, structural, and/or pathological articular changes. In the lumbar spine, these usually occur at the transition between the lower spine and the sacrum. Because of the relationship between the spinal column, the spinal cord, and the spinal nerves, vertebral subluxations have the potential to impair proper nerve function.

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc results when the rubbery cushions located between vertebrae or individual bones in the spine are ruptured. When one of these discs develops a crack in its hard outer wall, the inner disc material is pushed into the spinal canal. When this happens, the herniated disc irritates the nerves and causes pain, weakness, or numbness.
