If you’re looking for a ‘back pain clinic near me’, it might interest you to know that low back pain (also known as lumbago) is the most common reason our patients visit us. It can be a dull ache, or a stabbing pain; it can have arisen recently, or it might have been going on for months, or even years. It can be caused by a variety of reasons – from strenuous physical exertion, from an accident, or from not being active enough, or possibly due to poor posture.
Other, less obvious stress can cause low back pain, such as emotional stress: prolonged depression or anxiety can cause physical symptoms and can affect the body’s ability to recover from illness. As part of our chiropractic care plan, we will adjust the spine gently, over a period of time, with the aim of optimising the back’s range of movement and reducing any nerve irritation.
