Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Acute back pain that lasts less than six weeks is often the result of muscle overuse. When you lift heavy objects, neglect your posture, or do a lot of manual labor, it can stress your muscles leading to recurrent aches and pain in your back.

When you have back pain that lasts longer than six months, it may be the result of an injury to your spine or the structures that support it. Common causes of chronic back pain include:

  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease

Typically, acute back pain resolves on its own with rest and anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving medications. Chronic pain may worsen over time without proper care.

How does chiropractic care treat back pain?

Chiropractic care is an effective, holistic treatment option for both acute and chronic back pain. By using advanced chiropractic techniques, including manual and mechanical manipulation of your spine, Dr. Marinaro focuses on restoring alignment in your spinal structures.

A properly aligned spine relieves pressure on surrounding nerves that contribute to your pain. Manual manipulation techniques can improve blood circulation to your spine and the rest of your body to reduce inflammation and increase your range of motion.

Dr. Marinaro can customize a chiropractic care plan to keep you pain-free. Regular chiropractic treatments not only relieve existing pain, but they can also help reduce your risk for additional back pain and mobility issues.

What other treatments are available for back pain?

In addition to providing comprehensive chiropractic care for back pain, Dr. Marinaro also offers other therapeutic services at Pain Relief Center LA, including:

  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Custom orthotics
  • Injectable and oral supplements

You can also benefit from the lifestyle modification recommendations to support the health of your back and overall spine. In addition to regular chiropractic care, you can learn how to use proper lifting techniques and incorporate more stretches and exercises into your day. 

To improve the quality of your sleep, Dr. Marinaro uses Pillowwise®, customizable pillows that keep your spine in alignment throughout the night.

Dr. Marianaro offers both in-office chiropractic adjustments as well as concierge-style, mobile services that bring chiropractic care directly to you at home. Mobile services eliminate the need for you to travel to the office for consistent, high-quality chiropractic care.
