Back Pain Q & A

Why does back pain happen?

There are many causes of back pain, some of which are preventable. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Falls
  • Repeated spinal stress from heavy lifting
  • Arthritis
  • Disc degeneration due to aging
  • Lack of exercise, which can lead to poor core-muscle support for your spine
  • Obesity, which puts extra pressure on your spine

In general, back pain is more common with age. However, even children can suffer from back pain if they happen to have a sports injury or other type of accident. No matter what your age, getting prompt treatment is important if you want to get back to your life.

What is the treatment for back pain?

Back-pain treatment at Integrated Medical Solutions of Knoxville is personalized to you. Some of the most effective treatments include:

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care can alleviate spinal imbalance, reducing your pain. Dr. Shreve can help with slipped discs, pinched nerves, and other common causes of back pain. Noninvasive chiropractic techniques include the  Activator Methods® of low-force thrust, the Gonstead full-spine approach, the diversified technique of specific manual thrust, and the Thompson Terminal Point Technique that minimizes impact during spinal adjustments.

Custom exercises

Dr. Shreve can give you a set of custom exercises to help you build core muscle strength. This helps reduce the pressure on your spine and supports better long-term spinal alignment.

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine such as stem-cell injections can help with several different back problems. In particular, stem cells can in some cases help damaged discs.

In addition to the treatments above, Dr. Shreve can use other natural therapies to relieve your back pain.

How long will my back-pain treatment plan last?

It all depends on what is causing your back pain, how severe your symptoms are, and your treatment goals. Most patients who start an integrative treatment plan at Integrated Medical Solutions of Knoxville experience relief quickly as natural healing begins.
