Lower and Upper Back pain
Osteopathy for Lower and Upper Back pain
Back pain is one of the most common cases seen by osteopaths. It can be very debilitating, causing great difficulty in performing everyday tasks such as tying your shoes or getting out of bed.
Back pain can be a consequence of poor posture, bad lifting techniques, jarring movements or an inadequate mattress. It can also be derived from sports injuries, work place accidents or during pregnancy. Age related wear and tear can also be a contributing factor.
Osteopaths use various techniques to treat back pain including joint manipulation, articulation, stretching and soft tissue massage, which can be very effective in improving mobility, easing pain and maintaining function.
