Back Pain Treatment in Newstead, Brisbane

Woman on bed with back painIt’s estimated that 1 in 6 Australians experience some form of back pain, which isn’t surprising as the back is subjected to significant stress. The weight of the body, gravity, and everyday activities all put stress on the back. Muscles, ligaments, bones and disks can all be affected, leading to discomfort.

Two Common Causes

The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The discomfort can indicate that these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving properly. The discs between spinal bones can be involved as well. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on neighboring nerves.

The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments may help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may decrease, discomfort can ease, and improved stability can return.

We may use different techniques to address back pain. These include Sacro Occipital Technique® (SOT), Torque Release Technique, and Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC).

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t some back discomfort normal?

Pain of any kind is a sign that something is wrong. It’s the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While discomfort may recede in time, if the underlying problem isn’t addressed, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more challenging and expensive to resolve.

What about muscle relaxers?

Chiropractors don’t prescribe medication. Instead, we rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the undesirable effects associated with some pain medications.

What are some other natural ways to relieve back pain?

We offer supplements and wellness products like pillows that complement chiropractic care.
