How A Chiropractor Can Help With Back Pain by North London Chiropractor Dylan Paydar.
Back pain is one of the most common ailments which afflicts around half of the adult population but it can be treated by a qualified chiropractor.
Unfortunately, around four out of every five adults (80%) will experience back pain at some stage in their life.
For some people their back pain is nothing serious and disappears just as quickly as it began, but for many there is no single factor which can be diagnosed as causing the pain.
Once someone with back pain begins seeing a chiropractor they may well find that the discomfort stops. Indeed, most patients will experience a major reduction, if not a complete solution to their back pain.
As treatment depends on each person’s circumstances, a chiropractor will detect the source of the problem and tailor the treatment accordingly.
Solutions from a chiropractor could be as straight forward as a joint that just needs to be popped back into place. Known as a chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor will put the joints and vertebrae in proper alignment with the rest of the backbone so they function normally.
This method is just one of many ways to adjust the spine or other joints of the body with each treatment adapted to the patient’s age, size and condition.
For others, a chiropractor will advise on simple measures which can be taken to reduce the chances of developing back pain.
Some people will ask: Does the adjustment hurt?
In truth, most chiropractic adjustments are painless. In the case of recent trauma, such as whiplash, mild discomfort may be experienced due to inflammation.
The chances of developing back pain increase with age – though there’s no age limit for when it will begin. Chiropractors will treat anyone from school children to pensioners, with the peak in adults being those aged 35 to 55.
There’s no doubt that persistent back pain can have a significant impact on people’s lives. It frequently reduces their quality of life and adversely affects their family and social relationships and it’s given as the second most popular reason for long term sickness in the UK. For those who work in manual jobs, back pain is the number one reason for going sick.
Chiropractors don’t just deal with the back pain itself; their treatment is part of a holistic approach which will deliver a much healthier lifestyle for the patient.
Many patients, particularly those who have suffered back pain, find occasional chiropractic check-ups help keep them in top shape. Back pain is likely to blight people who are active, have stressful jobs, or who carry out repetitive movements at work.
More importantly, you don’t have to suffer with back pain before seeing a chiropractor. They are used to seeing people who just want to have their spine checked. Doing so means a person could have potential health issues related to their muscles, joint and spine detected before they become a major problem.
