Back Pain

Back pain affects about 80% of people in Western countries at some stage in their lives.  The pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that restricts movement.  Its onset can be quick or the pain can gradually increase.  Triggers like manual work, gardening, sitting badly, bending or lifting incorrectly are common.  

Back pain is not generally due to serious disease, often it is a mechanical problem.  Although, it is always best to be checked out by a health professional, such as a Chiropractor who can help differentiate the cause of your back pain.

Types of back pain include:

  • Neck pain
  • Upper & mid back pain
  • Low back pain
  • Buttock pain / Sciatica
