The common causes

Most people will experience an episode of lower back pain at some stage during the course of their lifetime. There are many different causes, such as:

  • Poor posture
  • Prolonged sitting
  • Incorrect lifting
  • Falls and accidents
  • Inactivity – no exercise
  • Poor core stability
  • Increase in stress

Most low back pain will get better without treatment. However, if the underlying cause is not corrected then you may find that your pain will persist. You may experience repeat episodes and those episodes may increase in severity. It’s best to have these injuries checked by a professional at Duncraig Chiropractic so that you get the correct advice you need.

Treatment for Back Pain

The first thing we will do is investigate the cause of your pain and then give advice on how to correct the problem. Your chiropractor will take your history and run a thorough examination to assess your injury. We also have X-ray facilities if further investigation into the cause of your low back pain is required.

Once the initial assessment has been completed your chiropractor will give you recommendations for care going forward. Treatment options include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Ergonomic advice
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Exercise

Our highly qualified chiropractors are here to help with your back pain. In the event that your chiropractor identifies that our practice is not suited to your injury, we will then organise a referral to another health practitioner that can help.
