What Causes Back Pain and Stiffness

There are a number of things which can trigger back pain and stiffness of varying severity. Most commonly, muscle strain, such as acute lumbar strain (felt in the lower back), can be attributed to heavy lifting or awkward movement. Back pain relating to spinal injury can be the result of a slipped or bulging disk.

How King Chiropractic Clinic Can Help

If you are suffering from back pain and stiffness, the best initial remedy is to apply an ice pack during the first 24 to 48 hours post-injury. Cold therapy will help to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, helping to reduce pain. Once you visit our office, we typically help combat back pain through spinal manipulation (high-velocity low-amplitude thrust) and spinal mobilization (low-force treatment).
