Back Pain and How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Have you ever suffered from back pain? If so, you’re not alone. Back pain is a common condition and has become increasingly more widespread due to the sedentary lifestyle that many of us lead. At Paunicka Chiropractic Clinic in Urbana, IL, we understand the importance of finding relief from back pain, and our team of chiropractors can work with you to find the cause and provide a personalized treatment plan. Here is a look at some of the most common sources of back pain and how chiropractic care can help.


Poor Posture

Poor posture is one of the most common causes of back pain. When your body is not in proper alignment, it can cause strain and discomfort in the muscles, which can lead to severe short-term and long-term pain. Chiropractic care can help to correct poor posture by providing gentle manipulation of the spine, allowing for improved mobility and reduced tightness.

Injury or Trauma

An injury or trauma to the spine can cause immense pain, and might be difficult to treat without professional help. Chiropractic care can help provide targeted relief from back pain caused by an injury or trauma, potentially helping to reduce inflammation and support healing. Also, through regular adjustments, the body can be realigned, and the mobility of the spine can be restored.


Stress can be a contributor to back pain. When the body is under physical or mental stress, it can cause tension in the muscles and joints, leading to not only back pain but also headaches and other uncomfortable symptoms. Through spinal adjustments, a chiropractor on our chiropractic team can help relieve this tension, potentially providing a much-needed sense of relief.

Sprain or Strain

Whether caused by an accident or daily activities, a sprain or strain can lead to pain in the lower back. A chiropractor can help provide relief from sprain and strain-related back pain by using manual manipulation to potentially help reduce stiffness in the affected area and restore normal range of motion. Also, targeted exercises can improve strength and flexibility, allowing for improved healing.

Disc Issues

Disc problems, such as herniated discs or bulging discs, can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back area. People who suffer from disc problems might experience a great deal of stiffness and immobility. Chiropractic care can often help by providing spinal adjustments. This treatment may help to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and relieve the pain associated with disc issues.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Mark is great. He has helped me twice with a pinched nerve. Last year I was in so much pain I could barely walk. He takes the time to explain the treatment. Everybody in the office are very friendly and helpful. Always enjoy discussing Purdue and the Illini. Love the Illini Treatment Room!"
