Osteopathy & Back Pain
60% of the population will suffer from back pain at some point in their lifetime, and yet many will not realise how powerful osteopathic treatment can be.
Back problems do not simply cause pain in the back. They may be the source of remote pain in the buttock-muscles, legs or groin - commonly called sciatica. Back problems can disturb the mechanical function of the whole body and result in pain in the joints of the neck, arms and shoulders. Osteopathic treatmentmay be one of the most effective methods to help correct these conditions - and back problems account for over 50% of the cases that osteopaths see.
Back pain may be due to injury, but there are many
disease states and pathological conditions that can result in symptoms
of back pain. These include:
|Osteopaths are trained to diagnose conditions such as those that need referral to a medical practitioner. With your permission, the osteopath will liaise with your Doctor if needed.
However, many back troubles arise from mechanical or functional disturbances of the spine, and osteopaths have been treating many of these problems for years.
Osteopathic treatment is unique as a patient's treatment
is approached comprehensively. Osteopaths do not look at patients simply
as back sufferers but as individuals with their own unique health requirements.
Treatment is designed to correct a patient's mechanical problems in order
to stimulate their own natural healing processes. Osteopaths do not simply
treat back problems but look at all the factors contributing to a disturbed
state of health.
