Chiropractic Care for Back Pain in Boston, MA

Lower or middle back pain is one of the most common chronic pain complaints in our country today. Most everyone has experienced some sort of back pain in their lives and unfortunately, the problem often gets worse with age. Sitting at a computer all day can make these problems much, much worse. Because the spine is extremely intricate, it can often be difficult to diagnose your back pain and its root cause. Dr. Chris Quigley and the Boston chiropractic team at Charles Street Family Chiropractic are experts in providing chiropractic care to treat minor or chronic back pain to provide much-needed relief from your discomfort.

Lower back pain

Muscle strain is often the culprit to your nagging lower back pain, causing spasms or inflammation in the area. In more serious cases, a disc disease, disc herniation or arthritis may be the cause, resulting in more pressure around the lower back’s nerves, muscles, discs, joints, tendons and ligaments. Usually when you feel lower back pain, it is common to treat it with medication like aspirin or ibuprofen, rest, ice or heat. Even though it may help the pain symptoms, it just masks the cause of the problem. Many times it can make you feel better and injure the area more! However, chiropractic services are often extremely helpful in treating the cause of your pain, yielding long-lasting results and a pain-free lower back.

Mid back pain

Your mid back, or thoracic spine, is less likely to get injured than your lower back since it is much sturdier. However, mid or upper back pain does still occur and can be caused by joint or muscle problems, or degenerative or herniated discs. Sometimes, a displaced rib may also be the cause of your mid back pain. At Charles Street Family Chiropractic, we will perform an assessment of your mid back discomfort and determine the best course of chiropractic care for you.

Finding relief for your back pain

Dr. Quigley is dedicated to helping you find relief of your lower back or mid back pain and discomfort. When you first meet with Dr. Quigley, he will determine the possible causes of your back pain and the best course of chiropractic treatment for you.
