What Causes Back Pain?

What causes pain and what is the source of pain are two different matters. However, these two questions, conceptually become jumbled up into one. We should always separate these two as they are profoundly different. Causes can be infinite. The way you think, feel, move, or rest may cause your pain. Therefore “causes of pain” may be infinite. The source of pain may be local to the place of pain, irritating local pain fibers, or may be much further away, resulting in the need for further investigation and categorization of the pain if long-lasting results, or results at all, are the desired outcome.

The Mechanical (Movement Pillar) Dynamics of the Back

The body is a dynamic, mobile structure and must be assessed and treated as such to create successful long-term outcomes.

Surrounding all joints there must be a balance between tension and compression of the ligaments, muscles, tendons, and fascia. When a local problem is determined to be a local cause, it can be due to an imbalance of these structures. Proper treatment requires mobilization and release of tight structures in addition to strengthening weak or inhibited structure of the painful joint as well, as the joints above and below. Back pain and movement limitations are often the consequence of chronic time under tension in one position – which causes deformation of back tissue – and gut health. Our doctors focus on a comprehensive approach geared toward lasting results.
