Back pain can turn the most active lifestyle into a limited, sedentary one. Sports injuries, degenerative spinal problems or long-term alignment errors can interfere with your ability to pursue your favorite athletic endeavors, do your job or even tie your shoes.

Back pain can take many different forms. Chronic back pain may be the end result of a progressive deterioration in your spinal structures or alignment; it may also be a nagging reminder of an old injury that left scar tissue in its wake. Lower back pain may involve soft tissue strain from a particular sport's repetitive motion, such as the twisting associated with golf or swimming. It can also occur from repetitive impact or weight loading.
Years of poor posture, an unbalanced spine or even simple aging can all contribute to chronic back pain. A bulging disc, for instance, may lose height and alter your vertebral spacing, causing joint strain and possibly worsening into a herniated disc. Your spinal imbalance and lower back pain may even stem from poor arch support in your feet or congenital physical abnormalities.
Acute back pain is easier to account for than chronic back pain because it's generally tied to a specific incident. A high-impact injury such as football tackle, automobile impact or a fall in the workplace can jolt the spinal column, causing a spinal misalignment and/or herniated disc. A herniated disc that pinches the sciatic nerve can produce lower back pain and other sciatica symptoms.

Our San Diego chiropractor can actually treat the root cause of the pain, making corrections that ease your symptoms while also restoring function. we can prescribe a personalized course of back pain treatment in San Diego that includes such safe, effective options as:
