At Suncoast Chiropractic, we will pinpoint the cause of your back pain by carrying out a comprehensive initial consultation. This will include a detailed history of the problems you have been experiencing as well as a physical examination.
Most of the causes of back pain are biomechanical in origin and respond well to the combination of techniques we have available. In the unlikely event that a more serious problem is identified, we can arrange a referral to a GP or Specialist.
Getting the right professional help can not only speed up recovery time and help you get back to normal more quickly, but it can also help to prevent problems becoming chronic and recurrent. If back pain is a problem for you, call us today on(07) 5492 5588 to book your initial appointment.
Types of Back Pain
Often, there is more than one reason why a bout of back pain occurs. Causes can include nerve root irritation, muscle spasms, strains or sprains to muscles and ligaments, and prolapse or degeneration of one or more intervertebral discs and other degenerative changes in the spine.
In some cases, back pain originates from an accident or injury, or simply the ‘wear and tear’ of growing older. For others, postural problems or poor workplace ergonomics may be the cause. At Suncoast Chiropractic we commonly see patients who suffer with a large range of these problems, but we treat each case with a fresh approach as everyone’s biomechanics is different and is why we do prescribe an individual care plan for each of patients that is specific to you.
What To Expect From Your Treatment
Don’t let back pain sideline you from the sports you enjoy, from doing your job or simply make everyday tasks a misery. Our holistic chiropractic approach helps us achieve the best outcome for our patients.
- Chiropractic treatments may include spinal mobilisation and adjustments to relieve the painful symptoms, releasing joint symptoms and improving mobility. Patients with general joint stiffness, degenerative spinal changes and disc problems will benefit from these techniques.
- Massage not only helps to increase the flow of blood to the painful area but also releases trigger points of tension in the muscles. Massage can be very effective when used in combination with Chiropractic.
