80% of the population will suffer from back pain at some time.
Studies show that osteopathic treatment reduces back pain, increases mobility and speeds the recovery process.
Your osteopath will work with you to:
• reduce muscular tension, inflammation and nerve irritation
• improve joint mobility
• reduce the duration of low back pain episodes
• offer advice on posture, exercises and stretching
• help prevent future episodes.
Osteopaths can be visited without a referral from a GP and are trained to know the difference between uncomplicated back pain and back pain requiring referral to specialist care. In some cases there may be a more serious cause for low back pain such as disc injury, fracture, tumour and infection, which requires ongoing specialist support.
Common causes of back pain
• extensive sitting or standing
• heavy lifting
• constipation, irritable bowel and endometriosis
• menstrual pain
• insufficient flexibility
• muscle weakness
• dysfunction in the thorax, lower limbs and pelvis.
