One of the reasons back pain is so prevalent, and confusing, is the number of ways that it can come about, along with the cumulative affect of stresses on the body, (consider the camel and the straw principle) and the relative weakness of the low back and its relative ease of injury. The accumulated stresses include but is not limited to poor posture, minor injuries, stress (both emotional and physical) and the lack of exercise, or incorrect use of the back during exercise. With all these things to consider it is no wonder 80% of the population end up with disabling low back pain.

The details are a bit too much for this article, but rest assured we will take you through step by step the reasons for back pain, and help you build a routine that will not only alleviate your current discomfort but also give you the knowledge and the tools to look after your back in the long term.

If you have questions, please get in touch, book your complimentary consultation and we will start the process of answering them for you.

Each presenting case of back pain requires a thorough history and examination to determine, not only which parts of the back are sending the pain signals, but also what the underlying reasons for the back pain are. Some are obvious, some are less obvious, hence the time taken to establish what has happened/is happening.

Following the history and examination I will present my findings to the you and explain in as much or as little detail as you want what is happening and what can be done to correct it.

There is no magic pill, do not expect to be sent on your way with a simple answer that will suddenly change everything. In order to truly resolve back pain, requires effort, both on my part (I can promise you that) and from you.

Some people require more exercises than others, some a solution from left field that they were not expecting, but the simple equation for resolving the underlying issue is effort. People who do the things I ask, and don’t do the things I ask them not to do, get the best and longest lasting results.

I also understand how busy lives are nowadays and so the exercises are (mostly) designed to be built into your routine so as not to add additional stress to your life.

If finding the underlying reason for your back pain is of interest and you are ready and willing to make

a few simple changes, then chiropractic is for you.
