Signs of back pain to watch for:
- tingling sensation or numbness in the leg or buttocks
- trouble getting out of bed
- muscle tightness or muscle spasms
- a slouching posture
- stiffness in the back
- pain when sitting or standing for a while
- restrictions in basic movements because of pain
- pain in between the blades of your shoulders
if you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you may be suffering from back pain, which is a very common condition. About 60% of all Australians suffered from back problems in 2017. That adds up to almost 4,000,000 people.
Back pain can be caused by many different factors, and that’s why we need to thoroughly examine anyone suffering from the symptoms of back pain. We rule out physical trauma and underlying pathological factors first of all. Mechanical or structural problems in the spine or what usually cause back pain.
One of the first signs we may notice that someone has back pain is their poor posture, caused by mechanical imbalances that occur in the spine. When we see forward changes in posture, we know that this adds extra pressure to muscles, joints, discs, bones, and nerves in the lower back and in other parts of the body.
This can cause severe pain and physical dysfunction. In many instances, back pain is chronic and can occur frequently. This can greatly hinder your ability to work or play.
We want you to get back to living your life, and that is why we are committed to treating your back pain.
What causes back pain?
Back pain is different for everybody. However, we often see many of the same causes for back pain:
- overly soft bedding
- sports injuries
- excessive sitting
- physical trauma
- underlying health problems
To treat back pain, we first determine if you are a good candidate for chiropractic care. Then, we find the right chiropractic professional to treat you.
To treat you, we need to perform a thorough physical examination and take down your clinical history.
How We Work
We use a proven chiropractic method that looks for misalignments in the spine and imbalances in the body. Once we figure out the postural problem, we can start on helping your body feel and move better.
We work to stabilise your posture so that there is less pressure on the ligaments, muscles, nerves, discs, and bones close to the spine and lower back. As we take that pressure off, you’ll have more freedom of movement and less pain.
