Back Pain FAQs

Are you one of the millions of people who can relate to having chronic back pain? If you're tired of living with pain and discomfort every day, you're likely seeking a solution that provides long-term healing and independence. At Paunicka Chiropractic Clinic, we understand our clients' needs and provide the highest level of care to each individual. If you live in or near Urbana, we welcome you to our facility. Below are some of the most common questions we receive about back pain.


What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can arise from years of wear and tear or an isolated event. For instance, if you have a physically demanding job involving heavy lifting or repetitive movements, you may develop back pain over time. Similarly, if you have been in a car accident or experienced a sports injury, it's common to feel back pain as a result. Many of our clients have had incidents like whiplash or vehicular-related trauma that impacted their bodies. Other potential causes include poor posture, muscle strain or sprain, herniated discs, and arthritis.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

If you're seeking a safe, non-invasive way to treat back pain, chiropractic care might be the solution you need in Urbana. Chiropractors possess a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system and its connection to overall health. They use hands-on techniques to manipulate the spine and other joints to relieve pain, restore mobility, and provide an alternative to traditional medicines. Your initial consultation is vital as we assess your current needs and design a treatment plan tailored to address your specific pain or discomfort areas.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Back Pain?

You might be someone who has never visited a chiropractor before. As long as you choose a licensed professional like the one you'll find here, chiropractic care is safe and ultimately effective. Rather than offering a temporary fix, we focus on individuals' overall health, enhancing functionality and confidence. We serve people of all ages, from young athletes to senior citizens, all experiencing back pain.

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!"
  • "I am lucky to have been in the care of both Doctors Paunicka for several years. Their care has allowed me to continue to walk and even dance!! My husband's spine surgeon approved and recommended Dr Paunicka! For the pain in my neck, back and lower back, I know that they will be able to help me. Having been to others, I can most highly recommend them to all!!!. My sincere thanks for the wonderful care!! It has saved my life!!!"
