Back Pain and Sciatica

Before you search on WebMD and determine that you have the Plague and a tumor, understand that back pain is very common and the underlying causes are often easily treated.

Misaligned vertebrae pinch nerves and cause back pain. Those who work in jobs that involve lifting and stooping (such as warehouse workers), as well as those with jobs that involve hours of sitting in one spot (such as office workers), are at risk for low-back pain.

Common Causes of Back Pain:

  • Weak back and stomach muscles become stiff and inflexible, making everyday activities difficult.
  • A sedentary lifestyle means that your body cannot respond when you need it to, and your back shoulders the burden if you need to suddenly lift or twist.
  • Old or poorly designed office chairs do not support the back or promote good posture. Workstations should be ergonomically designed for maximum health and comfort.
  • Obesity can cause back pain from added pressure on the spine.

Sciatica is leg pain that moves from the back down the hip and is caused by misaligned vertebrae or herniated discs pressing on the sciatic nerve, lumbar nerves, or sacral nerves.

Johnson Family Chiropractic is a Memphis back pain chiropractor that uses gentle adjustments to realign vertebrae and release pressure from the nerves to relieve back pain or sciatica.
