How Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Back Pain

Is back pain interfering with your life? You’re not alone, as back pain is one of the most common complaints. Learn what might be causing back pain and how our team at Diamond State Chiropractic in Newmark, DE, can help below.


Poor Posture

Many people work at a desk, working on a computer. When sitting properly and taking breaks, this activity can be okay. It's easier to relax the body and use poor posture habits. However, practicing proper posture can prove difficult in a general workspace. This strains the back, leading to pain, burning sensations, and more.


Repetitive activities can lead to muscle strains in the upper back. Athletes might also experience this, as constantly throwing a ball or swinging a bat leads to repetitive use.


Anything from poor posture to an injury can cause misalignment of the spine. When this occurs, it puts pressure on other areas of the spinal column, leading to pain, weakness, and more.

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc is one result of misalignment. When the spine isn’t properly aligned, it can cause a disc to tear and the inner filling to spill out on the surrounding soft tissues.

Pinched Nerve

A herniated disc often spills onto a nerve, causing compression or a “pinched nerve.” Sciatica is the most well-known pinched nerve condition. It occurs when the nerve from the lower back to the foot is compressed. This is the sciatic nerve, hence the name “sciatica.”


Conditions like arthritis can also cause upper back pain. Such conditions impact the bones and joints, which can pressure the nerves and impact the range of motion.

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain

Treating back pain begins with determining the underlying cause of that pain. By identifying and addressing the source, lasting relief will be achieved. Once the root cause is selected, a customized relief plan is developed.

  • Chiropractic adjustment is at the core of most chiropractic treatment plans. This is because chiropractic adjustment focuses on realigning the spine, relieving pressure from the other spinal column components.
  • Decompression therapy is also beneficial for gently stretching the spine to relieve nerve compression and pull herniated discs back into place.
  • Soft tissue techniques treat tension, sprains, and other muscle, ligament, and tendon issues.
  • Therapeutic exercises are key to stretching and strengthening the target area and naturally improving posture.
