Back Pain

Back pain accounts for over 12 million work days lost every year in the UK, and at least 80% of the UK population will have experienced it at some point in their lives.  It is the most common cause of chronic pain, and costs the NHS and the economy millions of pounds each year.

Research has shown Chiropractic to be one of the most effective therapies in alleviating pain in the lower back, especially in the long term, by improving the functional causes that started the problem in the first place.

There are many causes, from mechanical and fracture issues to infections, autoimmune diseases and internal organ issues.

The most common cause is undoubtedly mechanical, arising from:

  • Lifting incorrectly
  • Bending awkwardly
  • Poor posture
  • Strained muscles
  • Irritated nerves
  • Inflamed joints
  • Sporting injuries
  • Disc sprain / strains and bulges
  • Inactivity – lack of movement

Chiropractic care focuses on re-establishing normal motion in joints that are not moving properly or are in the wrong position.  In turn, this can help the nervous system, the master control system within your body, to function properly, promoting self-healing.  The length of time you have been in pain has a direct correlation with the length of time required for correction. Identifying and establishing the cause of the pain at an early stage is important, but research shows that chiropractic care is very beneficial in the management of more long-term chronic pain too.

Once your chiropractor has identified the cause and diagnosed your issue, a course of chiropractic care can be planned, and advice and recommendations provided, to help prevent relapses.
