Almost everyone gets back pain at some point, but staying active with the help of Chiropractic care may be a good solution.
Poor posture may lead to back pain. Your Chiropractor may advise postural changes in particular if you:
- spend hours sitting at a desk or computer
- slouch in front of the TV
- sleep in a bed that is too hard or soft
- find yourself hunching your back and shoulders in stressful situations
Repeating daily activities such as bending and lifting may result in back pain.
Chiropractic care treats the cause of your pain, not just the pain itself. At your appointment with one of our Chiropractors a full examination and case history will be carried out. Questions will be asked about your posture, medical history and lifestyle to try and find out the cause of your back pain.
NICE (2009) Guidelines for the treatment of low back pain suggest that spinal manipulation, such as that offered by our Chiropractors, may be effective in helping back pain.
