Back Pain Symptoms 

Back pain symptoms can vary from one or both sides, or the centre of the lower back. Lower back pain can be a constant dull ache or a sharp shooting pain, often coupled with leg/buttock pain, lower back stiffness, or hip pain. Lower back pain often occurs in episodes or flare-ups – sometimes seemingly for no good reason. It can occur when simply going upstairs or bending down to pick something up off the floor.

What Causes It 

Low back pain is multi-factorial, often caused by many, many different things, including, injuries or trauma, a fall, road traffic accident, or sports injury. Another common cause of low back pain is poor posture. Poor posture puts additional strain or pressure on joints of the lower back. Our team specialises in posture, spinal health, and spinal alignment. We design therapy plans to help you improve how you function, how you sit, stand, and sleep.

Common Causes Of Lumbar Back Pain

  • Trauma – i.e a ski injury or road traffic injury.
  • A herniated disc.
  • Stress – physical or psychological stress.
  • Poor posture/Improper alignment.
  • Overuse/muscle strain – i.e lifting a heavyweight at the gym.
  • Pregnancy – dramatic physical changes associated with pregnancy.

Physical Therapy  Care – Back Pain Diagnosed And Treated

So our physical therapists will offer you an individually tailored exercise program with exercises that work with your busy lifestyle, with the goal to regain the strength of the muscles of the lower back, core, and hips for long-term success and relief from pain.

Adjusting the spine is a vital part of our chiropractic care for lower back pain. Our chiropractors safely adjusts stiff joints in the spine to reduce pressure on your spinal cord and nerve roots, and increase the mobility of your spine. You will feel freer than ever before.

Spinal Adjustments For Lower Back Pain 

Chiropractic spinal adjustments work by freeing stiff joints in your neck, mid-back, or low-back that may be contributing to your low-back pain. When the joints of the neck, mid-back, or low-back may stiff that puts pressure on the important nerves that come from your spinal cord.

These nerves control how well your muscles work and how freely your joints move. So it is very important to relieve any pressure put on the nerves of your spine.

The Health Benefits of Spinal Adjustments

  • A decrease in inflammation.
  • Alleviation from stress and tension.
  • An Improvement in physical function and performance.

Spinal Decompression For Back Pain 

Spinal Decompression works by taking pressure or stress off the joints of the lower back that is causing pain, discomfort, inflammation, or degeneration.

A gentle and gradual pull is applied to the joints of the lower back that not only relieves the pressure on the joint but also nourishes and lubricants the joints – promoting cell renewal, and regeneration.

Intrinsic Core Strengthening For Back Pain

Most people do not use their core muscles correctly or at all. Utilising our core correctly has so many long-term health benefits. Our strong core muscles can take a lot of the stress and demands put on our bodies. But for most people, the muscles can surround our joints and the somewhat vulnerable structures of our joints (such as the cartilage, ligaments, or bursae take all the load.

For prevention of injury and pain, for optimal functioning, and to truly function to bodies true potential, it is important to not only to do regular back exercises, but also to use our core muscles!

Intrinsic core strengthening will activate your core muscles and help offload the demands and stress put on your joints.

Laser Therapy Treatment 

Laser Therapy works by promoting the natural healing process of the body. It promotes cell growth and increases mitochondrial cells. Mitochondria are important for all metabolic processes in the body – including healing damaged or inflamed joints or muscles.

Laser therapy has been shown to effectively relieve pain and swelling in those suffering from lower back pain.

The treatment is harmless and pain-free and takes only 15-20 minutes for effective results. Our laser therapy is performed by a competent physical therapist – so you are in good hands. Free feel to ask any questions you may have during the session.
