Conditions a Chiropractor Can Treat

If you are suffering from back pain, you may be considering visiting a chiropractor to find relief. A Chiropractor Can Treat a number of spinal disorders, and often works by realigning bones in the back and relieving pressure in the spine to alleviate a patient’s symptoms and provide neck and back pain relief.

Back Sprain and Strain

Sprains and strains in the back are two of the most common conditions treated by chiropractors. These injuries are frequently caused by playing sports, lifting too much weight, or even bending or twisting your back in the wrong way during normal activity. The pain from back strain or sprain is typically burning, stabbing, tingling, or aching, and usually occurs in the lower back. In the case of a back sprain, the pain occurs because ligaments, which are tissues that link bones together, have been overstretched or torn.

Cervicogenic Headaches

When suffering from cervicogenic headaches, a patient will often have symptoms that mimic migraine or cluster headaches, usually with pain at the back of the head, behind the eyes, and in the temples. This pain is actually referred from your neck, also called the cervical spine. Often, this condition is caused by large amounts of stress on the neck, but can also be caused by a damaged disk, osteoarthritis, or a compressed nerve. Poor posture, neck injuries, sleep difficulties, and fatigue may exacerbate cervicogenic headache symptoms.


Characterized by pain in the lower back or buttock that travels down into one or both legs, sciatica is a common condition a Chiropractor Can Treat. This pain is typically caused by compression of the sciatic nerve in the lumbar spine.
