At some point most people will suffer back pain in their life. Studies have shown that this number is a high as 4 out of 5 people.
Many people may only experience a short episode of back pain that does not require any treatment and does not have any significant impact on their life. However, for others back pain can be longer lasting and have a detrimental impact in their daily life.
A significant number of patients who visit our London chiropractic clinic are suffering from back pain. For many of these patients it is not their first episode of back pain that brings them to our clinic. Some patients will have experienced ongoing back pain over many weeks, months and even years before visiting our London chiropractors.
“I went to see Andy following a few months of upper back and neck pain which was causing severe migraines. After about 5 treatments, the tightness and pain was gone and it was so wonderful to feel such relief after so many months! Andy is very professional, extremely skilful at what he does and very good at putting his client at ease with his gentle and reassuring manner. A lovely person and a top chiropractor! Thank you Andy.” Imen T (5 Star Google Review)
Could Chiropractic be the answer to your back pain?
There can be many causes of back pain and to effectively treat it, it is vital to look for the root cause of the problem and not to simply treat the symptom. This philosophy is at the core of chiropractic which focuses on causes, not just symptoms. Chiropractic is therefore suitable for both acute (recent) and chronic (long term) conditions.
The effectiveness of chiropractic care for the treatment and management of back pain is supported by a large amount of high quality evidence. Both the European Back Pain Guidelines and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommend the treatment used by chiropractors. NICE recommended that the best approach to back pain to be spinal manipulation and exercise.
Chiropractic treatment involves a wide variety of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm. Other methods of treatment such as mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, stretches, dry needling and the use of rehabilitation programmes may also be used.
“Had on and off lower back problems for the last 5 years. Being treated for it by Marco has helped me rebalance my back and motivate me to keep it like that. He has recommended exercises to maintain a strong back, and now I am able to feel better on my own if I ever make a wrong move or have a bad posture. He was very kind and patient, I felt comfortable and relaxed whenever I went to get my back straighten and stretched.” Anet L (5-Star Google Review)
Visiting our London chiropractors for the first time
Our team of chiropractors at MotionBack are committed to offering friendly, professional and effective treatment enabling our patients to achieve and maintain their health goals.
In order for your chiropractor to gain an understanding of your overall health you will be asked to complete a short medical history form. Your chiropractor will then go through a full case history relating to your complaint and any other issues you may wish to discuss. After completing the consultation, your chiropractor will undertake a full physical examination. This examination will test the nerves, joints and muscles.
If no further tests are deemed necessary, your chiropractor will give you a detailed explanation of your problem. They will explain what is necessary to get rid of the problem, how long it will take and what is required to stop it recurring.
At the end of the consultation you should have a detailed understanding of your condition and what to expect as far as treatment is concerned. If chiropractic treatment is deemed appropriate, in some cases it is not, and you are happy to continue, treatment will commence.
“Before seeing Marco at Motion Back I experienced back pain almost every day and long walks were something I dreaded. After my first appointment with Marco I noticed a huge difference and now after a few visits and doing the exercises he recommended at home I can walk for hours and feel no pain. I find myself actively looking forward to my appointments and I would recommend Marco and Motion Back to anyone.” Lowri M (5-Star Google Review)
