The Side Effects of Untreated Back Pain

Back pain could be a sign of a more serious underlying problem that needs to be treated. 

Back pain is a serious problem here in the US. With the increased number of hours people are spending sitting for work, our Federal Way, WA, chiropractor Dr. Andrew Winger is seeing more and more people with back pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. While a minor or fleeting bout of back pain may not be a cause for concern, it is important to recognize when to turn to a chiropractor for care.

What causes back pain? 

While many things can lead to back pain some of the most common causes we see include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Improper lifting technique or heavy lifting
  • Bulging discs
  • Disc degeneration
  • Spinal fracture
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ruptured disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Osteoporosis

When could I benefit from seeing a chiropractor? 

If you are dealing with back pain, our Federal Way, WA, chiropractor offers a variety of safe, therapeutic chiropractic techniques to help improve not just your symptoms but also the underlying cause of your pain. You should turn to a chiropractor for back pain treatment if:

  • Your back pain isn’t improved with home care
  • Your back pain is getting worse
  • Your pain is persistent or lasts months without relief
  • You are dealing with limited mobility
  • You aren’t able to perform certain activities that you once did
  • Your back pain is impacting your mood and quality of life
  • You are looking to avoid back surgery
  • You want drug-free ways of treating pain

What happens if I don’t treat my back pain? 

It’s important that you don’t just ignore your back pain, as this can lead to further issues for your mental and physical health. Untreated back pain can increase your risk for:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Decreased or limited mobility
  • Lower quality of life
  • Depression, anxiety, and mood disorders
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Back injuries
