Lower Back Pain

Almost everyone gets back pain at some time. A survey carried out in 2004 found that at any one time in the UK, 33% of the population are suffering with back pain and up to 80% of the adult population will suffer significant back pain at some time in their life.

Staying active, with the help of chiropractic, may well be the best solution.

Repeating daily activities such as bending, lifting and twisting may cause your back problems. We can advise you on ways to tackle these everyday movements, as well as being able to help you if you have an injury due to a car accident, fall, sporting injury or lifting heavy weights.

Poor posture may also lead to back pain. We may advise you to make postural changes if you, for example, spend long periods of time sitting at a desk or computer, watching TV or driving.

We will carry out a full examination and take a thorough history before advising an appropriate treatment programme for you. Treatment consists of specific adjustments done by hand to free stiff joints and reduce spinal nerve irritation. We may also recommend ice, heat or massage┬átreatment amongst other things. We support the treatment we offer with individual advice about the patient’s lifestyle, work and exercise, in order to help in managing the condition and preventing a recurrence of the problem.
