Chiropractic Care For Low Back Pain

chiropractic, health and wellness, Lagos Health Chiropractic - Back Pain, posture No Comments »

Got low back pain from working in the garden or playing golf? Maybe it’s time to see your chiropractor!

Seeing a Doctor of Chiropractic, otherwise known as a Chiropractor, can be a beneficial step towards effectively treating low back pain. Similar to a medical doctor or a dentist, qualified chiropractors undergo a minimum of 4 years of specialist training, so you can be assured that we know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anybody else…and that includes many osteopaths and physiotherapists!

What Chiropractors Do

Chiropractors utilize a series of treatments designed to manipulate the spine, joints and tissues of the body to relieve pain and improve functional ability.

Examination Procedure

If it’s your first visit, your chiropractor will examine you thoroughly before making any sort of diagnosis or treatment plan, as there are many reasons why low back pain occurs. In addition to discussing your ‘health history’, your doctor will test your reflexes, sensory nerves, joints, muscles and other areas of the body to determine the most appropriate treatment.

Ouch, my back really hurts…what can I do?

Treatment Plan For Low Back Pain

If a patient is suffering from ‘acute’ low back pain (usually lasting for up to six weeks), a typical treatment plan is 2 or 3 weekly sessions over the course of 2 to 4 weeks. Often, this can be sufficient to completely resolve the pain. After this period of intensive treatment, it would be beneficial to consider regular maintenance care – one visit, every four weeks or so.

Long-Term Back Pain

Living with long-term ‘chronic’ back pain is more of a challenge, but chiropractors try to emphasize to patients that self-therapy at home (eg range-of-motion exercises) is a vital component of pain management. However, chiropractors may also encourage other approaches, such as massage therapy, yoga and making lifestyle changes, all of which can be highly beneficial. Once again, the treatments used and the benefits gained will vary with each individual, which is why it is important to be in a proactive, communicative relationship with your chiropractor.

Have you ever experienced any type of back pain? If so, we’d like to hear about what you did to relieve it…did you go to a chiropractor, an osteopath or a physio…or did you just take some painkilling tablets or rub in a cream? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
