Aches, Back Pain and Sciatica

Patients fall into two pain catergories:

1. Acute or sub acute pain – this is back pain that has been present for up to 6 weeks. It can be sharp, with spasm, and constant.
2. Chronic pain – Pain that has been present for more than 3 months. It is often dull, diffuse and intermittent.

These types of pain are common, and not normally due to a serious disease or health condition.

The pain may be effecting your daily activities including home, sport, work and general movements?

The most common triggers for back pain are poor work posture, sports injury, pregnancy, being over weight, lack of movement, lifting injuries or having a trip or fall.

Back pain is often caused by mal-alignment of the spinal joints and pelvis, leading to muscle, tendon and ligament tension, and sprain.

If you have back pain that persists for more than a few days, weeks or months, and is not improving, then book in to see a practitioner for a consultation.
