Back Pain

At Performance Health Chiropractic in Ann Arbor, we offer chiropractic care that can provide relief from back pain and other common issues. We aim to help our patients live pain-free and achieve their best life.


Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain can have many causes. In fact, the first step in chiropractic care is to determine the underlying cause of your pain. Back pain can occur in your lower back, upper back, or cervical spine, also known as your neck.


Injuries are one potential cause of back pain, particularly if the pain begins suddenly. This includes sprains and strains, which can occur due to sports, poor lifting techniques, poor posture, or simply daily life.

Spinal Misalignment

Spinal misalignment can be a cause of back pain. It can also contribute to other causes, including sciatica and injuries. When your spine is misaligned, it interferes with nerve function and the flow of blood and nutrients. It also prevents your body from functioning properly mechanically.

Disc Disorders

Disc disorders are another potential cause. Disc disorders include bulging or herniated discs and degenerative disc disease.


Arthritis occurs when inflammation develops, leading to stiffness and pain. Arthritis is more common as you age, but it can occur in younger individuals as well.

Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain

The good news is that your chiropractor can treat these common causes of back pain with a variety of treatments.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is the foundation of chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will use gentle pressure or thrusts to correctly align your spine. This can provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, improve nerve function and blood flow, and enhance your body's function.

Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises are often recommended as part of your treatment plan. Your chiropractor will determine which exercises are best for you and teach you how to do them. You can then continue the exercises in the comfort of your home. These exercises can improve flexibility, strengthen weak muscles, relieve pain, and support proper spinal alignment.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is another complement to chiropractic adjustment. Massage therapy can relax tense muscles, which can relieve pain and improve flexibility. It also improves circulation and increases blood flow, speeding up your body's healing process.

Nutrition and Lifestyle Advice

We take a holistic approach to chiropractic care, which means we see you as a whole person, rather than just a condition. Nutrition and lifestyle advice can help support your health goals and improve your quality of life.
