Low Back Pain Treatment - Macquarie Park
Low back pain is a common ailment that affects most people at least once in their lifetime. Majority of presentations seen at our chiropractic office are related to the low back.
General low back pain is usually not associated with a single cause and may account for the majority of low back pain cases. The pain is usually of mechanical nature due to abnormal body mechanics, injuries or strenuous physical activity. Specific low back pain, is usually attributed to a particular cause or spinal condition. The cause can be sciatica, disc injuries (disc herniation, protrusion or rupture), spinal stenosis, fractures, arthritis, skeletal and bony irregularities and tumours.
Low back pain is not just pain!
Few of the signs and symptoms of low back pain include:
✔ Pain in and around the low back
✔ Muscle aches across the low back
✔ Limited range of motion
✔ Stiffness in the back
✔ Shooting or stabbing pain going up and down the spine
✔ Pain going down into the buttock and legs
✔ If symptoms of low back pain are not relieved at their early stages, they may lead to further complications on a psychological level, including irritability and depression.
