Learn About 2 Types of Lower Back Pain Generators

Identifying the source of your back pain is important. This means that you know exactly where the pain is coming from. There are many anatomical reasons for back pain. Knowing the cause of your back pain can help your chiropractor be effective in managing it. These two pain generators show what is happening in your spinal cord.


The back muscles that go up and down the spine are called the, “Paraspinal” muscles. Did you know that an injury to the back muscles is the most common cause of back pain? This is because the pain can be so severe. These muscles also help to support the spine. Most all low back pain develops from a tear or strain in the muscle tissue. The bones that support the spine are attached to these muscle tissues. Anyone can suffer from muscle tissue injuries whether they are active as an athlete or not. Yard work such as using a rake to clear leaves can cause a muscle injury. When the body has not been stretched before an activity it is prone to an injury. Stretching is a good way to loosen the muscles before doing any activity involving repetitive motion. Chiropractic and soft tissue massage is a great way to get relief from muscle pain in the back.

Soft Tissues

The soft tissues are attached to other structures in the body. They also support these structures and organs. Soft tissue injury can come from a sprain or strain. Inflammation in the soft tissue can cause low back pain. This can come from injuries to the tendons and ligaments. Class 4 laser therapy can be used to reduce inflammation and pain. Mobility is often limited when the ligaments become damaged. Each tendon and ligament needs to function properly. Without the proper function of the ligament the body will be limited in its movement. A soft tissue injury can occur in the lower back just like muscle pain. Chiropractic treatments can help soft-tissue injuries heal better by restoring mobility. Soft tissue injuries often come with discomfort and they are more common in those who play sports. Injuries to the soft tissue can be prevented with warm ups and stretching. Also, allowing the body to recover in between workouts or other activities will prevent soft-tissue injury. Ending back pain must begin with you.
