Back Pain FAQs

Back pain is a common problem experienced by many people. It can be caused by something as simple as lifting a heavy object the wrong way or due to an underlying medical condition such as arthritis. If you are experiencing back pain, you may want to get treatment as soon as possible to relieve your symptoms and get back on track with your normal daily activities. At Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE, our chiropractors can conduct a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your back pain and provide a suitable treatment plan. Here are some frequently asked questions about back pain.


What are the most common causes of back pain?

Fortunately, many cases of back pain can be successfully treated. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Incorrectly lifting heavy objects
  • Improper posture
  • Slipped or herniated discs
  • Strained muscles and ligaments
  • Arthritis conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis
  • Fibromyalgia

How do I prevent back pain?

Prevention is always better than treatment. If you are expecting to lift heavy objects, make sure you warm up your muscles first by stretching or exercising lightly. A good rule of thumb is to only lift objects that are half your weight. If you are regularly lifting heavy objects, consider using a rolling cart to prevent back strain. When sitting, make sure the chair is at the correct height for your desk to avoid slouching or hunching over.

What can I do about back pain at home?

When back pain starts, there are several things you can do to help alleviate the symptoms. The first thing you should do is rest and avoid putting pressure on your back for at least 24 hours. You may also want to apply ice to reduce swelling and pain. Warm baths can also help soothe sore muscles.

What kinds of treatment are available for back pain?

When you visit our chiropractors, we will conduct a thorough assessment to determine what is causing your back pain and develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses your symptoms and overall wellness goals. If the pain is due to a pinched nerve in the lower back, chiropractic adjustments can be used to relieve pressure on the affected area and help you achieve pain relief. If arthritis is causing your back pain, our chiropractor may recommend lifestyle changes or provide you with nutritional counseling to improve your symptoms. Regardless of the root cause of your back pain, our chiropractors will work with you every step of the way throughout your recovery process.

I am so appreciative for the care provided at Diamond State for the first time I no longer think about my neck or shoulders. Very professional and kind office all the way from front to back!!!
