Back pain is increasingly common in our modern lives. Whether your back pain is caused by poor posture or by something more serious, we can get you back to a healthy and pain-free life.
There are many causes of back pain. You may have experienced generally a sudden injury (e.g. when lifting something heavy), a chronic condition such as sciatica, or by the cumulative effects of smaller factors such as poor working posture, the wrong sort of mattress, etc.
The first step in treatment is to diagnose exactly what the problem is and what is causing it. Your osteopath will carefully examine your posture and any painful areas to determine the root cause of your pain and the best cause of treatment.
Where back pain is not caused by a chronic condition or injury it is typically down to an incorrect posture or similar issue, meaning some simple adaptations should prevent the problem recurring in the future. Your osteopath will help you look at postural issues such as the way you work and relax to see where you might be able to make changes which will prevent the problem coming back.
