Our Chiropractor in Columbus Helps People of All Ages with Back Pain
Estimates show the majority of us (as much as 80%,) will experience at least one episode of back pain within our lifetime. As a chiropractor in Columbus--also serving Bibb City and surrounding Georgia communities--Dr. David Johnson has helped many patients recover from their pain and dysfunction, and get back to the life, work, and activities they love.
10 Common Causes of Back Pain
Your back pain could be caused by a wide number of factors, including poor posture, poor sleep and coping strategies, poor body mechanics, repetitive stress, too much sitting, smoking, overweight and obesity, poor nutrition, genetics, and a prior history of back injury. Specific conditions--often presenting with stiffness, leg pain and weakness, and numbness or tingling--include:
- Muscle strain or spasm
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Joint subluxation
- Sciatica and nerve impingement
- Ligament sprain
- Bony tumor, cyst, or spur
