Low Back Pain – North Ryde

Low back pain can range from being an annoying niggle to excruciating pain stopping you in your tracks.  Up to 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their life. (1) The pain may radiate into your buttocks, groin or even down the leg an into your foot.

Some Causes of Lower Back Pain:

  • Muscle strain
  • Ligament sprain
  • Disc injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Sacroiliac joint problems
  • Pregnancy
  • Poor posture
  • Incorrect lifting

We are often asked is it a muscle or a spine problem?  Both as they are all connected!   You can’t have one without the other.  We will work on both your spine and muscles to help restore the correct motion to your spine and reduce muscle spasm.  This in turn will help to reduce any nerve or ligament pain as well.

Chiropractic helps to alleviate discomfort whether it is from the spine, ligament, muscle or nerve as they are all connected.  Chiropractors look for areas of the spine where the joints aren’t moving properly and help to restore the correct motion to them.  This can be done either via hand or a hand held instrument.  Research shows that spinal manipulation can help to alleviate one’s lower back discomfort.

If you are experiencing lower back pain, it is important to have it thoroughly assessed before treatment is started.  We will take an indepth history, complete examination including x-rays if appropriate.  A diagnosis will be made from our findings and discussed with you, along with our recommendations for treatment.
