Pain Management and Chiropractic clinics have been continuously growing due to the rising number of people seeking chiropractic treatment. Of these, over seven million people seek relief from back pain caused by muscle strain, sports injuries and other forms of accidents.

At Trauma Associates of Florida our certified Chiropractors offer a variety of chiropractic treatments for back pain. The following is an overview of back pain and the treatments we offer.
Back pain overview:
There are many conditions that result to back pain including trigger points, ruptured disks, obesity, sprained ligaments, strained muscles, sports injuries, inflamed joints, accidents, psychological stress, arthritis trigger points or ruptured disks. Sometimes even simple movements such as tying shoe laces can lead to back pain.
Types of back pain:
There are different types of back pain but the most common are chronic low back pain and acute low back pain.
· Acute lower back pain:
Patients who experience lower back pain often heal on their own by staying active and taking care of themselves but if it persists you can consider a no drug chiropractic therapy such as chiropractic manipulation.
· Chronic lower back pain
Natural chiropractic therapy like spinal manipulation is more beneficial in treating chronic lower back pain than long term use of pain medication. This is because treatment for lower back pain should be more focused on reducing pain and improving function.

Some patients may show no spinal abnormalities on x-ray, yet they suffer from very painful back pain. The following are the symptoms of back pain that you should look out for:
· Muscle spasm
