We use a variety of techniques to treat back pain, including:
This technique involves the use of controlled force to manipulate the joints of the spine. Spinal manipulation is a common chiropractic treatment for back pain, as it can help to reduce pain and improve mobility.
The use of gentle stretching and movement to improve the range of motion in the joints of the spine. Mobilisation is often used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments, such as spinal manipulation.
Soft tissue therapy
This technique involves the use of massage and other manual techniques to relieve tension in the muscles and other soft tissues of the back. Soft tissue therapy can help to reduce pain and improve flexibility.
This technique uses specific exercises to strengthen the muscles of the back and improve mobility. Exercise therapy can be a useful adjunct to other chiropractic treatments for back pain.
Posture and ergonomics
This involves the evaluation and modification of posture and workplace ergonomics to reduce the risk of back pain and improve overall spinal health.

Chiropractors can be helpful for treating lower back pain, particularly if it is caused by problems in the lumbar spine or facet joints. Chiropractic treatments such as spinal manipulation and mobilisation can help to reduce pain and improve mobility in the lower back.
Acute lower back pain is a sudden, intense pain that usually lasts for a few days to a few weeks. It is often caused by an injury or strain to the muscles, ligaments, or bones in the back. Chronic low back pain, on the other hand, lasts for longer than three months and may be caused by an underlying medical condition, nerve damage, or degenerative changes in the spine.
Not all cases of low back pain require scans, particularly if the pain is mild to moderate and does not persist for an extended period of time. However, if the pain is severe or does not improve with conservative treatments, scans such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI may be recommended to identify potential causes of the pain, such as lumbar spine degeneration or degenerative disc disease.
If you are experiencing low back pain, it is important to rest and avoid activities that aggravate the pain. Over-the-counter pain medications and heat or ice therapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation. If the pain persists or is severe, you should see a healthcare professional for further evaluation and potential pain treatments.
Yes, back pain can lead to neck pain . The spine is a complex structure that is connected from the top of the neck to the bottom of the lower back. Problems in one area of the spine can affect other areas, leading to pain and discomfort. For example, a problem in the lower back, such as a herniated disc, can put pressure on the spinal nerves that extend upward to the neck, causing pain and stiffness.
