How a chiropractor can help you with back pain – shares a leading London Chiropractor

Back pain is one of the most common ailments which afflicts around half of the adult population but it can be treated by a qualified chiropractor. Unfortunately, around four out of every five adults (80%) will experience back pain at some stage in their life. For some people their back pain is nothing serious and disappears just as quickly as it began but for many, there is no single factor, which can be diagnosed as causing the pain.

Once someone with back pain begins seeing a chiropractor they may well find that the discomfort stops. Indeed, most patients will experience a major reduction, if not a complete solution to their back pain. As treatment depends on each person’s circumstances, a chiropractor will detect the source of the problem and tailor the treatment accordingly.

Solutions from a chiropractor could be as straight forward as a joint that just needs to be popped back into place. Known as a chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor will put the joints and vertebrae in proper alignment with the rest of the backbone so they function normally. This method is just one of many ways to adjust the spine or other joints of the body with each treatment adapted to the patient’s age, size and condition. For others, a chiropractor will advise on simple measures, which can be taken to reduce the chances of developing back pain.

Some people ask the question: Does the adjustment hurt?

Most chiropractic adjustments are painless. In the case of recent trauma, such as whiplash, mild discomfort may be experienced due to inflammation.

The chances of developing back pain increase with age – though there’s no age limit for when it will begin. Chiropractors will treat anyone from school children to pensioners, with the peak in adults being those aged 35 to 55.
