Most people associate chiropractors with back pain and indeed majority of the patients we see come in with back complaints. Many of us will experience at least one episode of back pain at some point during our lifetime.
For some, these are minor episodes resolving quickly. However, for many others, the pain can be more severe, persistent and long term (chronic). It can affect normal daily activities, quality of life and lead to time off work.
If you are suffering from back pain or back discomfort, having a consultation with a chiropractor can help identify the cause of your problem.
Pain is usually an indication that your back is not moving or working as it should.
As chiropractors, we deal with mechanical related spinal problems, so we can help get your back moving and working properly again. We do this by using a variety of treatment techniques, mainly manual, including manipulation (adjustment), mobilisation, soft tissue therapies and exercise and lifestyle advice. We also give specific advice on how to minimise or prevent recurrences of your back complaint.
