When Should I See a Back Pain Chiropractor?
If something doesn’t feel right, there’s a good enough reason already to seek back pain treatment. Waiting too long to address even the smallest issues can lead to bigger problems down the road.

- Muscle aches
- Shooting or stabbing pain
- Pain that worsens with bending, lifting, standing or walking
- Pain that radiates into your extremities
- Pain that causes weakness, numbness or tingling
Causes of Back Pain
Ultimately, the back pain chiropractors at Clark Chiropractic and Wellness will discover the true root cause of your back pain – we’ll help you develop healthy everyday practices that will help your body heal and approach your individual situation with the appropriate back pain treatment.
Generally speaking though, these are some of the most common issues we see causing back pain in Kingwood:
Muscle or Ligament Strains – This is one of the most common reasons patients seek back pain treatment and lower back pain relief in Kingwood. Muscle and ligament strains can be the result of something major, like repeated heavy lifting. They can also be caused by something as small as a sudden awkward movement. Even grabbing a doorknob wrong can strain a muscle!
Accidents and Injuries – Car accidents, falls, and sprains are some of the biggest reasons people seek out a back pain chiropractor.
Poor Posture – If you’re someone that spends a good portion of the day sitting at a desk, chances are you’ve been prone to some poor posture. All of us have a tendency to slouch while sitting – over time this constant poor positioning can lead to nagging back pain.
Herniated Discs – Discs act as cushions between the vertebrae in your spine. Sometimes, the soft tissue in the discs may “slip” or come out. Most of the time a herniated disc is caused by wear and tear – you’ll most likely be feeling pain in your lower back or hips due to the nerves in those areas being pressed.
Subluxations – Subluxations occur when connective tissue between two vertebrae is partially disconnected – in simpler terms, it’s a misalignment of the vertebrae of the spine. Subluxations can occur for a multitude of reasons, but are universally painful, resulting in neck pain, headaches, and limited mobility.
Back Pain Treatment
Our goal is to return your body to an optimal state of health.
Your spine is the foundation of your entire structure. We evaluate each patient thoroughly, take necessary x-rays, then treat you accordingly based on what we find. We believe in treating the person, NOT the condition – and root causes as opposed to just symptoms.
These are just some of the many different tools and techniques we utilize in back pain treatment and lower back pain relief in Kingwood:
ArthroStim – A gentle but specific tool that can vary its speed in order to fit the type of brain stimulation that a patient needs – a key component of treatment.
VibraCussor – A patient favorite, the VibraCussor is an extremely beneficial, brain-based therapy. Once we determine where the neurological deficits and weaknesses are, we will put you on a specific type of brain-based therapy to restore them.
Range of Motion Stretching and Core Strengthening – We work with you to help develop an individualized core strengthening plan and educate you on range of motion stretches that can aid in your recovery.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression – Ideal for patients that suffer from herniated discs or failed back surgeries, this technique delivers extremely beneficial results.
Once you’ve been evaluated and adjustments have been completed, we do something that 95% of chiropractors NEVER do: we x-ray again. We don’t just want our patients to feel better, we want them to see that the problem has been corrected. Our goal is to deliver a lifetime of health, not a short-term solution.
