Back pain can be a distressing condition, not only due to the discomfort felt, but also due to the impact it has on family life and work as well. At the Gateshead Chiropractic our opinion is that there is no such thing as a bad back. You body is just telling you to deal with it. Our goal is to get people out of discomfort as quickly as possible, and educate them in how to prevent re-occurrance.
The Chiropractic Approach
Most people will have already visited their GP and received good advice on how to remedy the discomfort of back pain. Pain killers, anti-inflammatories and a course of physiotherapy have usually been prescribed. You may have also tried an osteopath or massage therapist
If these simple approaches have not been successful, spinal adjustments by a chiropractor may offer the solution. The goal of chiropractic care is to restore mobility of the joints, and protection to the nerves in the region.
Movement in general is an excellent promoter of good health and healing.
Even with severe back pain the adjustments a usually quite comfortable.
