For millions of Americans, back pain is part of their day-to-day life. However, while back pain may be common, it doesn’t mean that it is normal, natural, or the way that you have to live your life.
Your back is the core of your entire body, and injuries can happen from illness, herniated discs, auto accidents and anything in between. Even sitting stagnant at a desk all day can lead to serious back pain and discomfort.
Here at our Laurel, MD chiropractic office, we see countless patients suffering from all types of back pain, ranging from herniated discs to scoliosis, sports injuries and everything in between. Here are some of the most common causes of back pain we see in our chiropractic office:
- Sitting at a desk for multiple hours every day
- Automobile accidents
- Sports-related injuries
- Injuries from poor lifting form
- Poor posture
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Work injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
While many of these conditions are quite different in nature, they all have one thing in common: they can severely interfere with a person’s overall quality of life.

- Kidney stones or infections
What Can Be Done About My Back Pain?
This is perhaps the most common question we get from patients: what can I do about the back pain that I have? Spinal manipulations or chiropractic adjustments target abnormal or “misaligned” vertebra in the back. The goal of these adjustments is to improve functionality, reduce nerve irritability and restore range of motion in the back.
Since we always take x-rays before we adjust and provide treatment, we can get to the root cause of the pain to make sure that we apply the right type of adjustment at the impacted areas of the spine to get the best results possible. Here at our office, we also prescribe other treatments, therapies and at home exercises that can help you get the best results possible with your care.
No matter what the cause of your back pain may be, our goal here at McAuliffe Chiropractic Office is to get you out of pain and get you back to feeling like yourself! We understand the severity associated with back pain and just how limiting it can be. This is why we offer same day appointments and flexible scheduling for our patients.
