If you suffer from Chronic Back Pain you know how it can really affect your day. Most people with chronic back pain find that it usually occurs in the lumbar region (lowest part of your back). However, with the increased technology use in today’s society we are finding more people are reaching out for treatment on their Thoracic spine (upper back).
Symptoms of Chronic Back Pain
Dull, achy pain, which is often worse in the morning. There does not need to have been a previous back injury for back pain to present.
It’s best to avoid self diagnosis – speak to your Doctor or Osteopath to discuss your unique symptoms for a formal diagnosis.
Poor ergonomics, repetitive strain or even incorrect footwear can cause chronic back pain. Increasing age is a huge contributor, but not always the cause.
Your Doctor or Osteopath may have diagnosed you with one of the following:
- Bulging Disc
- Muscular Strain
- Joint Irritation
- Sacroiliac Joint Sprain
- Facet Joint Sprain
Your Osteopath will work with you to address the cause to prevent future back pain re-occurrences and give you exercises to help manage your condition. Gentle mobility and regular stretches can help you manage your condition and help you get on with your day.
