Ranging anywhere from mild to excruciating, back pain is a unique and personal experience for each patient. Our chiropractor at Skocik Chiropractic in Harrisburg is the area’s leading specialist for diagnosing, treating, and healing patients’ upper, middle and lower back pain.
The location of the pain is a primary distinguishing factor of back pain. It is also characterized by the type of pain a patient suffers. From the location standpoint, back pain can be specific to the upper back, middle back, and lower back.
Upper back pain is usually very painful, but fortunately, not very common. It is generally the result of muscle irritation or a disc injury, which is rare.
Pain in the middle back, the area ending at the base of the rib cage, is also uncommon. It can happen as the result of strain or injury to muscles, ligaments, and discs in the area. Poor posture can also cause this type of back pain.
Pain in the lower back, or lumbar spine, is the most common back pain. Since the lower back is the base for the upper body, it enables motion such as bending and twisting. Pain in this area is usually the result of injury or strain to the muscles, ligaments, joints, or discs.
Giving the chiropractor an accurate description of the type of pain you are feeling is important for quick diagnosis and correct treatment. You may experience any one of the following:

Our goal is to treat and alleviate your back pain as quickly as possible. A complete medical history and thorough physical exam are the first steps leading to recovery. Once we have identified the cause of the pain, a course of chiropractic adjustments is effective for correcting the spine’s alignment and alleviating the related muscle strain, joint pain, and nerve pain. We have also had good success with massage therapy and spinal decompression therapies.
