Back Pain : Causes, Symptoms, and Osteopathy Treatment
Effective Osteopathy Treatment for Back Pain at Hills Osteopaths
Back pain can happen to young and old alike, to those both athletic and active, as well as people who don’t move a lot and are mainly sedentary.
Back pain can be intermittent – it happens for a while, then disappears. But back pain can linger too becoming often becoming distracting, before leaving. Worse still, back pain can be persistent, where people may suffer for a longer period and even present when sleeping. This is often referred to as chronic back pain. People can feel upper, middle and low back pain.
The treatment required depends on the cause of the back pain but, if it’s due to mechanical strain, osteopathy can make a huge difference. Get in touch and we will assess whether we can help with a course of treatment.
This page will hopefully help you understand common causes of back pain and some natural ways to achieve pain relief ...
In classical osteopathy, a whole-body approach, all the root causes of your back pain will be addressed. An osteopathic will provide manipulative treatment to address the structural root causes. This can affect swelling, anxiety, blood flow, spasm, sciatica, strength, energy, tension, severity and side effects of back pain.
At Hills Osteopaths we will also educate you on self-help strategies so you are better able to help yourself with your back pain. Through lifestyle changes, you will be better able to employ pain management, understand how to use heat therapy, provide self-support and achieve back pain relief.
From an osteopathic perspective, there are many common causes of back pain. Previous health conditions, diseases and inappropriate movements can affect mobility, disability, alignment, muscle pain and other pain.
Some examples of the potential associations and causes of back pain are listed below.
Most of us know about poor posture or sitting at your desk for too long, but back pain can also be triggered by dehydration and lack of fitness ...
As you can see, there are many potential causes of back pain. There are also many different symptoms people experience with back pain too. Sometimes symptoms come and go, but some may be progressive i.e., meaning they can get worse over time. What symptoms you have, what you experience, when symptoms flare and go away, and how severe the symptoms are is a uniquely subjective experience. Below are some examples of what people experience with back pain.
Intermittent Back Pain Symptoms
When someone first has back pain, symptoms can come and go. To the mind, the symptoms may seem to have no rhyme or reason. People in this stage can experience:
Lingering symptoms can happen after someone has had back pain (or symptoms above) come and go for a while. Then ‘one day’ the symptoms stay a little longer, a few days or a week or a month.
People in this stage can experience all the symptoms above, often with more intensity including :
Persistent pain is constant unrelenting pain througout day and the night that isn’t going away. This is a category of severe back pain and often requires medical attention. Symptoms can include:
If experiencing pain to this degree, you should always pursue medical attention first. Once you have a medical diagnosis and stabilised, then it is beneficial to combine osteopathy and natural treatments to decrease your recovery time, relieve pain and assist in your restoration to health.
Active treatments are things that you do yourself, e.g., exercise, changing your pain thoughts and beliefs, and learning about back pain.
Passive treatments are things that are done to you by others such as osteopathy. Have a look through these treatments and see which might suit you. If none are helping or your symptoms are worsening, do go to No 9 - and get in touch us to arrange an appointment.
