What is the Main Source of Your Back Pain in Tacoma?


Back pain is a common complaint found in patients of all ages and health backgrounds. According to the American Chiropractic Association, it is the second most common reason Americans visit the doctor and a primary reason they miss work. Though it can be caused by many different problems, car accidents and sports injuries are a frequent source of persistent back pain in Tacoma.

If you have been in a collision, you know how easily back pain can creep up on you afterward. Many collision victims believe post-accident pain is normal and that discomfort will eventually subside. But often, pain lingers on with time. This is because the sudden impact of a car accident does more than just cause bruising. It can also throw the spine out of alignment, compressing the discs and causing them to herniate. When a car accident injury is left untreated, scar tissue can form and the injury may become increasingly painful with time.

A sports injury can also cause back pain, whether due to lifting too much weight, taking a nasty fall on the field, or simply failing to adequately stretch prior to activity. Often, injuries related to sports cause bruising and inflammation. Muscle strains and injuries to the connective tissues are also common.

Sports and Car Accident Injuries Common Causes of Back Pain

Treating a car accident injury or a sports injury requires more than pain medications and time to heal. Instead of relying on medicine, visit a chiropractor in Tacoma who understands the musculoskeletal system and the type of pain that can develop because of an injury.

Here at Proctor Chiropractic, we treat many types of injuries using effective, non-invasive treatments. We attempt to isolate pain and create a biological environment for self-healing. This may include chiropractic adjustments or spinal decompression. We then develop a plan for rehabilitation that may include the use of supplemental therapies like massage or physical therapy. Ultimately, our goal is to eradicate pain and restore the body to pre-injury condition.
