There are many different causes for back pain in general, and specifically lower back pain. The high-stress work environments that many Americans find themselves in can be a major contributor to back pain, whether you work a desk job or a more physical job. Back pain can become chronic if not treated properly by a professional. Luckily, there are specialists available to help you on your road to recovery.

At Progressive Health and Rehab in Gahanna, we believe in taking a holistic approach to treating your back pain. That means that if a chiropractor can best treat your lower back pain, then that’s the approach we will take. If a physical therapist can create the best plan, we can also go that route. But what’s best about Progressive Health and Rehab is that if a combined approach will benefit you the most, we can do just that. Contact us today to get started on the road to living without back pain. Also, consider these possible common causes for lower back pain.


Humans have a unique shape to the spine due to our bipedal nature. The spine had to take on an “S”-shape in order to support the weight of the body and allow us to walk upright. Unfortunately due to genetics and environmental factors, some individuals’s spines don’t hold their “S”-shape and curve side to side. This can cause pain in both the upper and lower back areas. Seeing a chiropractor educated in working with scoliosis can help realign the spine and reduce or eliminate pain through precise and gentle manipulations.
