Back pain develops as a result of a muscular-skeletal imbalance combined with inflammation and pressure applied to the nerves. The severity of a back pain can range from a mild muscle ache right through to a strong pain which may radiate out to other parts, restricting movement, range of motion and certain daily activities. As measurement-based chiropractors, we’re particularly interested in understanding how this came about and what key factors are contributing to the problem. In chiropractic terms, we look for the misaligned vertebrae and postural imbalance that are causing the muscular-skeletal strain.

Back pain may develop slowly as accumulative effects suddenly reach a threshold or may come on instantly as a result of a sports injury, slip trip or fall or car accident or serious trauma. If the back pain has been present for more than 12 weeks, it’s usually classed as chronic pain.

Some common symptoms of back pain (according to the Mayo Clinic) are: 

  • Muscle ache
  • Shooting or stabbing pain.
  • Pain that radiates down your leg.
  • Pain that worsens with bending, lifting, standing or walking.
  • Pain that improves with reclining.

To alleviate back pain, here at Healing Hands Chiropractic, we conduct our uniquely designed 10-step chiropractic check-up to first establish the root cause and related symptoms. Knowing what’s happening in the body is vital for making the correct diagnosis and formulating the right healing plan.

The follow-up chiropractic care will focus on restoring alignment, postural correction and optimising the nervous system. Our chiropractic care is personalised to your particular case and consists of a sequence of advanced chiropractic adjustments. This rebalances the body and promotes healing, allowing the muscles to return to normal function, increasing mobility and range of motion, and optimising the nervous system. Swelling and inflammation, which are the body’s natural healing responses, tend to gradually disappear as structural alignment and function improve.
