What is Spinal Pain?
Spinal pain is defined as any pain experienced in the bottom of your pelvis, lower back, mid-back, the region between your shoulders and shoulder blades, the bottom of your neck and into the back of your head.
It can present as a sudden, acute pain, or long-lasting chronic pain, both of which are treatable with manual therapies.
Symptoms of spinal pain include:
- Mild tension or spinal stiffness
- Ache or sharp pain
- Spinal inflammation
- Pain which may be worse at certain times of the day – early morning and late evening
- Pain that radiates from the main site
There are many causes of spinal pain:
- Poor posture
- Herniated disk
- Bulging disk
- Disk narrowing
- Compression fracture
- Wedge fracture
- Muscle strain
An assessment with one of our practitioners may help to identify if any of the above is the cause of your spinal pain.
Treating Spinal Pain
Treating spinal pain will depend on your particular symptoms. A full assessment will always be carried out before we start treatment. During your assessment, you’ll be asked about your medical history and the details of your current injury.
Spinal pain relief can be achieved with a range of manual therapies including osteopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy or massage. Our practitioners will use hands-on methods including joint mobilisation, deep tissue massage, soft tissue stretching and deep tissue release to treat your pain.
They may also provide advice on posture, lifestyle, workstation set-up and exercise to help prevent further or recurring injury.
If the problem is severe, our practitioners may refer you to a consultant for further investigation.
