Common Causes of Back Pain

Back pain can arise from a variety of sources ranging from acute injuries to chronic conditions. Common causes include:


  • Muscle Strains: Often resulting from heavy lifting or awkward movements, muscle strains are a frequent cause of acute back pain.


  • Spinal Alignment Issues: Conditions like scoliosis or poor posture can lead to uneven stress on the spine, causing pain over time.


  • Degenerative Conditions: Age-related ailments such as osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease progressively damage the spine's structure, leading to discomfort and stiffness.

Symptoms to Watch For

Certain symptoms associated with back pain may indicate underlying issues that require professional attention, including:

  • Persistent or Intensifying Pain: Pain that does not improve with rest or that worsens over time can signify a more serious condition.


  • Radiating Pain: Pain that extends to the legs or arms, especially if it includes tingling, numbness, or weakness, could be a sign of nerve involvement.


  • Restricted Mobility: Difficulty bending, stretching, or performing daily activities due to stiffness or pain should be addressed.


Recognizing these symptoms early can significantly enhance the effectiveness of treatment and reduce the risk of long-term damage.

Back Pain Treatment Options


Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a cornerstone of our treatment approach, focusing on spinal alignment to relieve pain and improve function. Our chiropractors use precise adjustments to correct alignment issues, which can alleviate pressure on nerves and surrounding tissues. This method is particularly effective for patients suffering from sciatica, herniated discs, and chronic lower back pain.


Sports Therapy and Massage

Sports therapy and massage are essential for both acute and chronic back issues. Our therapists use a variety of techniques to reduce tension in the muscles and connective tissues that support the spine. Regular sessions can enhance blood flow, promote relaxation, and speed up recovery from sports-related injuries or overuse. This treatment is also invaluable for maintaining back health and preventing future episodes of pain.



Osteopathy treats a wide range of back problems by focusing on the body's overall structure. Our osteopaths apply manual techniques to balance body systems, improve joint mobility, and enhance circulatory and neurological function. This holistic approach is ideal for treating back pain caused by poor posture, repetitive strain, or even lifestyle factors.


Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment using sound waves to stimulate healing in injured tissues. It is particularly effective for chronic conditions such as degenerative disc disease and persistent lower back pain that hasn't responded to other treatments. 

Shockwave therapy can jump-start the body's natural healing processes, reducing inflammation and pain without the need for surgery or medication.
