Did you know?

Back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, with 8 in 10 people experiencing it at some point in their life. In Australia, 4 million people experience back problems, some recovering in a few weeks, while most return to everyday activities in about two months. Still, a number of people struggle with chronic pain, which develops gradually and if not treated worsens over time. Whether you experience acute or chronic back pain, the good news is a chiropractor for back pain can help. Back pain and chiropractic care go hand in hand to bring pain relief to anyone leading a sedentary lifestyle, lifting heavy objects or recovering from an injury.

What is back pain?

People may experience back pain in different ways. While some describe it as a sudden pain similar to an electric shock, others report dull ache, stiffness or tension in the back which makes it hard to turn or bend. 

Back pain can also be classified as low back pain (affecting the lower lumbar spine) and mid or upper back pain (affecting the upper thoracic spine).

Both types of back pain can have a tremendous impact on you not only physically but mentally. Therefore, it is even more important for a back chiropractor to correctly diagnose the type of pain you suffer and identify what causes it. 

If your back is causing you mild, moderate or severe pain and you find it challenging or impossible to move, chiropractic care for back pain might be just what you need.

Symptoms of back pain

How are you today?

Back pain symptoms can range from mild discomfort and moderate aching to severe, debilitating pain with sharp, stabbing or burning sensation.
These are some of the crucial questions we ask patients when identifying the symptoms and recommending treatment:

Are you experiencing dull, sharp or burning back pain?
Do you have difficulty getting out of bed due to back pain?
Do you feel stiffness and tension in your back muscles (muscle spasms)?
Is there pain in between your shoulder blades?
Does your back hurt after sitting or standing for prolonged periods?
Does your back pain occur suddenly and worsen over time?
Is the pain worse when bending, lifting or walking?

Seeing a chiropractor for back pain is the best course of action if you are experiencing any of these problems.

What causes backache?

Backache has a wide range of causes the most prevalent one of them being  spinal misalignment.  Spinal misalignment can manifest as a result of chemical imbalance (toxins, poor diet,  smoking, drinking), structural imbalance ( poor posture, sleeping position, sitting position, training routines) and stress (tension, anxiety or emotional upset). Below are some other factors contributing to spinal misalignment and therefore backache that can be addressed in your chiropractic appointment:

Poor posture

Your spine has the important job of keeping your body upright. Poor posture forces your back muscles to work harder and thus cause extra stress on your spine.

Pulled muscle or tendon

Lifting heavy boxes or objects may strain one of the many muscles or tendons in your back and thus cause lower back pain.
