Back pain is one of the most common complaints we see as chiropractors.
It is estimated that 3.7 Million Australians suffer from back pain. Overall, 70%-90% of Australians will experience back pain or sciatica at some stage in their life.
Back pain can present in many different ways. Lumbar disc injuries (prolapse/herniation) can account for back pain, and/or shooting leg pain, that can be made worse in certain postures, or coughing/sneezing.
There are many possible causes of disc-type back pain and no two people are the same. Which is why in order to give you the best experience and results it is necessary for our chiropractors to perform a thorough examination of your body.
Chiropractic treatment for back pain
Our first priority is to ensure that we know exactly what is going on with you and your body, and what is causing your back pain.
During this process, if we deem that you need to be referred to another health care practitioner, we will be sure to find the right person to help you.
For the most part, many people with back pain or sciatica have a neuro-muscular cause of their pain. Meaning their back pain is mechanical in nature, due to poor spinal alignment, muscular imbalances etc. In these instances where this is the cause, chiropractic care is a safe and effective method for back pain.
