If you are suffering from back pain then our Chelmsford Chiropractor may be able to help.
Back pain and especially lower back pain is one of the most common conditions treated by our Chelmsford chiropractor.
Causes of back pain
Lower back pain can stem from one of a number of causes. These can include: poor posture, heavy lifting and carrying, stress, pregnancy to general wear and tear.
Our body is supported by the spine which carries our spinal cord and nervous system. Nerves then branch off the spinal cord between the vertebrae. Injury can not only lead to local inflammation but also to irritation of the spinal nerves causing pain elsewhere in the body. Back pain can also be very painful and uncomfortable. It is not uncommon for the pain to be felt in other parts of the body such as in the legs and sometimes even in your feet.
It is not uncommon for our patients to believe that their low back pain is caused by a ‘slipped disc’. However, this is usually as a result of a commonly held belief that acute low back pain is caused by a ‘slipped disc’. However, this is not the case – discs do not slip. They can bulge which may cause leg pain or sciatica.
Chiropractic treatment for back pain
Acute, chronic and general low back pain respond well to chiropractic treatment. Official government guidelines from the NICE and guidelines from the Royal College of General Practitioners suggest the early referral for manipulative treatment, such as chiropractic, is the most effective way of dealing with acute and chronic low back pain.
