Back Pain

As many as 60% of adults in the West may experience acute Back Pain in their lifetime and in 33% it is recurrent or chronic.

Back Pain most commonly occurs when a facet joint, which connects two vertebrae, is strained by lifting a heavy object.

Pregnancy, tense muscles, strained ligaments, poor posture, bad sitting habits, and slouching can all cause back problems as can ageing joints, infections, gallstones, kidney stones, stress or being overweight.

After a few weeks even severe cases will get better with a little treatment but relapse is common and if back pain is persistent it must be seen to by a qualified health practitioner.

This complaint is the one most often seen by Chiropractors and Osteopaths.

Tip: Make sure the chair that you sit in all day is ergonomic and supports the back. Take up a 'back' therapy such as yoga or the alexander technique.

Any of the following have been proven to help:

Acupuncture, Massage, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Alexander Technique, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Yoga.

You are recommended to seek advice of a qualified health practitioner. To find a qualified practitioner in your area look in the Practitioner Directory.
