Back Pain and Chiropractic

Our spine is a sophisticated structure composed of bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. We can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture discs and irritate joints all of which can cause back pain. While we can all understand how accidents and sports injuries can cause back pain, sometimes even the simplest of movements (like picking a pencil up from the floor) can produce painful results. 

In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity and emotional stress can cause or complicate back pain. Research has found that chiropractic care has the following benefits, compared to conventional treatment options: 

  • A decrease in pain relief medication use 
  • Faster recovery times 
  • Significant improvement in back pain symptoms 
  • Significant improvement in physical activity tolerance 

Chiropractors are trained in the surgery and drug-free approach of disorders of the spine, nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal adjustments and treatment of surrounding structures, including, muscles, soft tissue and ligaments. 

The Chiropractor will conduct a thorough musculoskeletal assessment to determine the cause of your back pain. The Chiropractor will put together a comprehensive and individualised treatment plan that is designed to address your specific condition and requirements for pain relief and long-term healing.
