Back pain

Back pain is very common.

Did you know 4 out of 5 people at some time in their life will suffer from back pain and the relief of this is one of the most common reasons people consult a chiropractor.

There are many causes of and types of back pain.

Chiropractic has been clinically proven to be an effective treatment for mechanical causes of lower back pain. In addition to providing relief of such symptoms there are often reported  benefits in the form of improvements in overall well-being, especially if this is combined with the change to healthier lifestyle choices.

Back pain can start following a specific incident, such as bending awkwardly or lifting a heavy weight. Or it can develop gradually, perhaps as a result of poor posture, an uncomfortable work position or repetitive strain.

Less frequently, back pain can also be associated with other symptoms. The nerves of the back can sometimes become irritated, compressed or trapped. Again, there can be many reasons why this happens, but slipped discs or wear and tear can lead to pain spreading down the leg, which is commonly referred to as sciatica. This can be accompanied by pins and needles, tingling, numbness and weakness in all or part of the leg and foot.

Seeing a qualified  chiropractor for back pain, who is experienced in diagnosing conditions of the back and spine, can help treat back pain, and also identify if a referral or specialist investigations are needed.
