Back pain is experienced by most people at some time in their lives, however with the help of treatment from a professionally trained chiropractor combined with keeping active on a daily basis improvement in the condition can be quickly seen.
In the normal course of life the commonest reason for lower back pain stems from poor back posture. This can often be the result of spending long hours sitting at a desk at work, sleeping in a bed that provides poor support, driving long distances or carrying out activities such as lifting, bending, stretching and twisting.
Undertaking sporting activities can also result in lower back pain injuries particularly where the above physical activities are common place.
By undertaking an initial clinical assessment we look to treat the cause of the pain rather than concentrate solely on the pain itself.
If you are experiencing back pain then we can help you. There is good evidence for the effectiveness of chiropractic care for the treatment and management of both acute (new) and chronic (longer term) back pain. In fact treatment used by chiropractors is recommended by both the European Back Pain Guidelines and also by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) for helping with back pain.
There are lots of conditions that affect the spine and can contribute to pain, some of these include:
Discs can bulge, prolapse or herniate completely. But they do not 'Slip'. All the conditions above respond well to care.
