Find the underlying cause of your pain.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, back pain is the single leading cause of disability. Back pain prevents people from being able to properly work or engage in everyday activities. Although back pain is often recognized as an ailment afflicting adults and the elderly, back pain doesn’t have an age limit and can affect people of all ages.

Patients at University Chiropractic and Wellness often wonder why they are experiencing back pain. This is especially true for patients who are generally healthy and uninjured. There isn’t a universal cause for back pain, but there are many contributing factors, including:



Bulging or Ruptured Disks in Spine


Excess Weight

Exercise Habits


Lifting Improperly

Muscle Strain


Poor Posture (Standing or Sitting)


Those who have experienced injuries or played high-impact sports may notice back pain immediately after the experience, but also may experience chronic pain as well.
