Upper, Mid and Lower Back Pain Causes
The causes of upper, mid and lower back pain are unique to each person’s lifestyle and health circumstances. Our chiropractor thoroughly diagnoses the underlying causes of your back pain and designs a chiropractic care treatment plan to for your lasting relief. Some common back pain causes include:
Sudden back injury—Slipping, falling, sports injuries and car accident injuries often cause upper, mid and lower back injuries. Dr. Sas specializes in treatment for personal, sports and auto accident injury.
Pregnancy back pain—At least half of pregnant women report suffering back pain. Fortunately, chiropractic care during pregnancy provides natural, drug-free relief that boosts mom’s and baby’s wellness.
Poor Posture and Ergonomics—Slouching at your desk, sleeping on an unsupportive mattress, looking down at your phone… all of these poor posture habits wreak havoc on your lower, mid and upper back.
Chiropractic Care: Ideal Treatment for Back Pain
Each of these issues nudge vertebrae out of alignment, pinching nerves. Sometimes, uneven pressure or sudden injury will damage intervertebral discs or pull muscles and damage joints. Fortunately, chiropractic care is the ideal treatment to get your back into a state of wellness lasting pain relief.
Our St. Louis chiropractor is highly skilled at chiropractic adjustments to restore proper spinal alignment while also taking pressure off of nerves, muscles, tendons, fascia and discs. Many patients experience sudden pain relief after an adjustment. For some, it takes a series of adjustments for ultimate relief. Best of all, chiropractic care works with your body’s own natural healing resources to optimize your recovery.

Back Pain Q & A
What causes lower-back pain?
When you think about lower-back pain, you probably think of injuries caused by lifting, reaching, or twisting with the back when lifting heavy objects. While those are common, they’re only one of many things that can cause lower-back pain. Other common causes include:
- Herniated disc
- Compression fractures
If you have lower-back pain, it’s not uncommon for it to be accompanied by other symptoms, such as pain, numbness, or tingling in the legs that extend down below the knee. Most lower-back pain should subside within a few weeks. However, if you’re stressed or depressed, it could become chronic.
What should I expect during a chiropractic adjustment?
Chiropractors relieve pressure on the joints in the lower back with spinal adjustments, helping to relieve pain. After a spinal manipulation, many patients notice pain relief not only in their lower back, but also in other areas, such as the feet, neck, or legs.
During your first appointment, Dr. Sas takes your medical history, consults with you about your symptoms, and performs a physical examination of your musculoskeletal system, focusing primarily on the spine. He then performs a series of spinal manipulations to help relieve pressure on the joints.
Lower-back pain is often tied to soft tissue damage, so Dr. Sas might pair chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy, cold laser treatments, or electrical stimulation therapy.
How many sessions will I need?
You will need many chiropractic sessions with healing time between each one to experience long-term relief from your lower-back pain. Because spinal manipulations relieve pressure on the joints, allowing your body to heal itself properly, it’s likely you will experience continued improvement after every visit.
The number of sessions required varies widely from patient to patient. For example, Dr. Sas may recommend 2-3 treatments per week for several months. You could experience a broad range of treatments during that time, including spinal adjustments.
Even after your lower-back pain has subsided, coming in for routine treatments can help prevent lower-back pain resurfacing. Many patients report that regular chiropractic adjustments improve their quality of life significantly, as they relieve stress and pressure all throughout the body.
If you want to experience relief from your lower-back pain, contact Dr. Sas at Gateway Chiropractic today.
Words From Happy Gateway Chiropractic Patients
I have seen many chiropractors since college in effort to fix a few different issues, and Dr Sas is the ONLY one who sat down and created a full treatment plan AND TOLD ME ABOUT IT. Personally, I like to know what’s going on when a Dr is treating me, and he has always been very transparent in my care plan. After 6 years I can finally cross my legs sitting down again, and it keeps getting better.
I had A LOT of irrational anxiety about getting chiropractic work done. But Dr. Sas was very down-to-earth and didn’t feed me any b.s. He understood my anxiety, but made sure that I understood he was in this with me and for me. After 4 months, he is now one of my most favorite humans and I look forward to our visits. Oh, and I guess it’s probably important to note that his treatments are actually helping me. So, there’s that.
Dr Sas is amazing!! I went from having back pain daily to being symptom free after about a month in his care. I have seen other chiropractors before and I can’t say enough about how great Dr Sas is compared to the competition. His office staff is incredibly nice and knows everyone by name. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to go see Dr Sas at Gateway Chiropractic!
