Chiropractic care for Low Back Pain

Chiropractic for low back pain can also be combined with other treatments such as massage, exercise rehabilitation and nutritional education.

Low back pain is usually caused by a collective build up of bad habits over a number of years. We can outline the things that are causing the back to degenerate and how to adapt.

What is Low Back pain?

Most adults will experience low back pain at some stage in their lives. One of the most important questions we get asked is – “why does my back hurt all of a sudden?” There can be a number of factors including recent falls or slips, the position you are in for work, how much stress you are under and if there were isolated episodes of back pain in the past.

After a thorough medical examination and x-rays (if clinically justified) the cause of the back pain can be outlined and we will diagnose the problem. Some of the common diagnoses we see are Osteoarthritis, disc prolapse (commonly called slipped disc), facet sprain, sciatica and mechanical low back pain.

Following a diagnosis, a treatment plan will be outlined, the techniques to be used and
how to prevent re-occurence.

How does Chiropractic help low back pain?

For patients with back we use spinal adjustments to the areas that are stiff and fixated. If there is also pressure on a disc, we will use gentle spinal adjustments around the affected area.

The type of adjustments vary from person to person depending on what they need. Dr Jeremy will make you feel at ease and explain exactly what he will do before he performs each one to make sure you are comfortable and understand.

Chiropractic for low back pain can also be combined with other treatments such as massage, exercise rehabilitation and nutritional education. Your Chiropractor will also prescribe you low back pain exercises to strengthen your back.

Can my low back pain be prevented?

Low back pain is usually caused by a collective build up of bad habits over a number of years. We can outline the things that are causing the back to degenerate and respond to this – e.g. recognising poor lifting habits, adapting your working environment and encouraging light exercise.
