Back pain is the most common reason people seek chiropractic care and can arise from many different conditions. This is why it is important to conduct a full examination to accurately diagnose what is generating your pain.
Some of the most common causes of back pain that we see in practice include:
These conditions may present as local pain in the back or referred pain into the hips or legs, numbness or tingling, restriction to normal movement, discomfort associated with prolonged sitting, standing or specific activities, difficulty ‘getting going’ in the morning and many more. If this sounds like you then this is something we can assist you with! Chiropractors are also able to recognise when your pain is coming from something more serious such as underlying pathology. In this case we are able to provide you with the appropriate referral for further investigation.
