BACK PAIN

What is back pain?

80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Moreover, it is estimated that low back pain affects more than half of the adult population every year and that over 10% of all people experience frequent bouts of low back pain throughout the course of their lives.

man with back painYour lower back is more susceptible to injury because it is not supported by your rib cage, unlike your thoracic spine. Although this instability facilitates greater mobility, it also makes that part of your body more prone to injury.

Fortunately, as long as your lower back is functioning correctly, it can withstand tremendous forces without sustaining any injury. However, if your lower back is out of alignment or has weakened supporting muscles, simple daily tasks can exacerbate or instigate injury.

What are the symptoms of back pain?

Some of the most common symptoms of lower back pain include:

  • Soreness, tension or stiffness in your lower back,
  • Pain down the front, side or back of your leg(s),
  • Sudden pain after lifting heavy objects or twisting your back,
  • Pain that worsens at night, during activity or after sitting still for a prolonged period of time.

How can Chelsea & Fulham Chiropractic Clinic help?

Until recently, researchers believed back pain could heal on its own. Unfortunately, more recent studies have revealed that, if left untreated, back pain may alleviate temporarily but will eventually return. It is here that we can help you. Our professional chiropractic care can effectively care for your lower back pain and prevent future side effects. By utilising Digital X-Ray and scanning technology we can isolate and treat the cause of your lower back pain.

Some of the most common causes of low back pain include:

  • Sprained ligaments,
  • Strained muscles,
  • Ruptured disks,
  • Trigger points,
  • Inflamed joints,
  • Fixations (vertebrae not functioning or moving correctly),
  • Disc herniation,
  • Spasms (often caused by overworking your lower back muscles or ligaments).

A large number of the causes of lower back pain are often the result of sports injuries. As a result, the use of sports massage has often been heralded as a supportive measure for lower back issues. By undergoing regular massage treatments, you can significantly reduce your probability of sustaining lower back injuries in the future. We also offer acupuncture to aid in relief of your symptoms.

Due to the plethora of causes of lower back pain and the large amount of sufferers who leave their symptoms untreated, it is important that you seek professional help to prevent long term repercussions.
