Back Pain Q&A

What causes back pain?

Back pain is increasingly joint with age, whether you work a desk job or have a career that demands physical labor. Stress on the back is one of the most common reasons people call out of work. There are many common causes of back pain, including:

Herniated disc

The discs between each vertebra contain a hard outer casing and a soft center. Over time, small cracks can form in the casing, causing the soft center to push through. That irritates the surrounding nerves and leads to inflammation and back pain.

Muscle strain

While most muscle strains resolve themselves, some never heal properly. When this happens, you can be left with chronic back pain.


The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back down the back of the legs. Any pressure or irritation of the nerve can lead to low back pain on one side, as well as numbness and tingling in the legs.


Arthritis is a degenerative condition in which the joints become inflamed. Osteoarthritis, the most common form, causes the flexible cartilage surrounding the joints to deteriorate. Without cartilage, the joints can rub together and cause back pain.

Poor posture

Remaining in a seated position for extended periods, lifting heavy items repeatedly, or leaning over a desk all day can put a strain on the soft tissues that support the spine.

How is back pain diagnosed?

To effectively treat back pain, it is important to have an accurate diagnosis. Easy Reach Chiropractic can help you with this. When you arrive, Dr. Adonis and Dr. Pevill will review your medical history and ask you questions about your symptoms. They will ask how long you have been experiencing pain and where the pain is located. They will also need to know which treatments you have tried at home to relieve the pain.


After that, your chiropractor and physical therapist will perform a comprehensive physical exam. Depending on your situation, they may also order additional testing such as X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan to pinpoint the source of your pain better.

What are the treatments for back pain?

Easy Reach Chiropractic provides multiple treatments to relieve neck pain and back pain, which include:

Acoustic shock wave therapy

Acoustic shockwave therapy delivers low-intensity shockwaves directly to your bones, muscles, and other soft tissues. This non-surgical treatment stimulates your healing response by repairing tissue damage and accelerating new cell growth.

Massage therapy

Easy Reach Chiropractic employs a licensed massage therapist who can manipulate the soft tissues in your back to stimulate blood flow, repair damage, relieve pain, and restore function.

Spinal decompression therapy

Dr. Adonis uses a special table to gently stretch the spine and relieve pressure from herniated discs during non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

Class 4 laser therapy

Class 4 laser therapy is a type of treatment that uses laser energy to repair damage without requiring surgery. During the treatment, the laser energy is absorbed by your bones and tissues, which causes it to convert into heat. This heat then stimulates your body's natural healing response, which helps to speed up the healing process and promote the growth of new cells. The body's natural healing response helps to speed up the healing process and promote the development of new cells.
