Back Pain

back pain


Back pain is by far the most common reason our patients come to our Racine chiropractic office. We see a variety of people complaining about a variety of back pain issues. Old, young, athletic, sedentary, and everyone in-between visits us for a healthier, more balanced body.

Whether you’re suffering from acute, blunt, or chronic back pain, we can help. When proper spinal care goes untreated, there’s a propensity toward other, more severe problems. At Daniels Chiropractic, we strive to give you the lifestyle you once had (or are yearning for). 

Your back pain may be stopping you from climbing that boulder or climbing those stairs. Either way, you deserve a body that can support you, function as it is meant to, and provide you comfort. Our team will help make that happen. 


Why do I have back pain? 

Our back supports just about every move we make, so there’s often a lot of pressure placed on the spine. When the spine gets injured, the symptom is often back pain. A chiropractor knows how to provide balance to the spine, which in turn will stop the pain. 

Back pain can stem from a number of scenarios ranging from a car accident to a sneeze.


Some of the more common causes are: 

  • Fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruised tissue
  • Pulled muscles
  • Herniated discs
  • Spine compression 


Chronic or constant back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Sciatica
  • Spinal tumors
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Scoliosis


While these issues can be very aggressive and painful, they can also be tolerable with only mild discomfort. Either way, it’s important to seek chiropractic treatment to avoid more severe complications that could easily lead to more severe pain. 


Why should I see a chiropractor for my back pain?

We have patients coming to us for several back-pain reasons; the net reaches far and wide. Our intent is to find the root of the pain so the body can perform as it should, naturally. 


People visit us for:

  • Sore and tender back muscles 
  • Aching back muscles
  • Pain in the back: sharp, dull, stabbing, throbbing, radiating
  • Lumbar pain / lower back pain
  • Back stiffness
  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility 
  • And more


Some of these symptoms occur due to prolonged inadequate spine use, others may be because of a jarring accident or fall.


Other reasons include:

  • Work-related injury 
  • Athletic injury
  • Bad posture 
  • Poor ergonomics
  • Working at a computer all-day
  • Sitting all-day
  • Poor moving or lifting practices 
  • Lifting heavy items incorrectly 
  • Sudden movements 
  • Abrupt pulling of the body


Some of these can be remedied with simple technique-education, while others are due to no fault of your own. Using correct posture, taking advantage of in-office stretching and exercising moves, and getting the correct training for your physically demanding job will all contribute to the body’s wellness and balance. 

In the current working environment, many employees find themselves working from home. Using chairs and other office furniture that is designed to create ergonomic support is going to make a significant difference in the correct function of your back. 

Being proactive with your health is always good advice. The doctors at Daniels Chiropractic will provide care for your current back pain, as well as insight on how to avoid back pain or keep it from coming back. 

Getting the spine properly aligned will allow your back to support you how it is meant to. Chiropractic care for your back is safe and effective, with very little downtime, and can take the place of more evasive, risky measures.

So many of us suffer with tension headaches caused by stress for years, not realizing there is real relief available.  I first visited Dr. John with lower back and neck pain brought on by emotional and physical stress.  I had been reticent about trying a chiropractor, but Daniels Chiropractic was recommended by several of my friends.  I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in the door. The office staff is extremely friendly and efficient.  Dr John put me at ease right away. After running a few diagnostic tests, he used diagrams and models to carefully explained the underlying cause of my discomfort.  I was surprised to note significant relief in my lower back in very short order. The most significant benefit I have gotten from my visits, is relief from neck stress which I had endured for years.  My lower back feels more consistently stable and strong and I am able to keep up with walking and zumba.  I return for visits when necessary, generally after I've overdone playing or lifting my grandchildren. The office gets me in right away, and Dr. John's treatments start bringing relief right away.
