Lower Back Pain

What is lower back pain?
Lower back refers to the area between your upper buttocks and below the ribs. Problems in this area directly affect the spinal bone, affecting its stability, flexibility, and strength. The pain can be a mild ache or a sharp, shooting pain that obviously causes discomfort, and may also cause stiffness.

What can cause lower back pain?
Lower back pain can be a symptom of a number of things. Modern lifestyle requires most of us to sit on desks for long hours. Sitting with a wrong posture, or even lifting heavy items in an incorrect manner can put strain on our muscles, ligaments, joints & nerves, which may cause stress and pain in the lower back.

Lower back pain may also result from other medical conditions which may not be related directly to the back itself. These include:

  • Gastrointestinal
  • Gynaecological
  • Kidney (renal) problems

A professional assessment of the same can help narrow down the cause and lead you to the ideal treatment for back pain. bodytonic clinic offers a FREE 15 minute assessment for the same. All you need to do is ask for the FREE assessment when you book an appointment with us online.

Symptoms of lower back pain?
Lower back pain itself is a symptom of other problems mentioned previously. However, apart from pain, other symptoms include stiffness in surrounding muscles and a restriction in movement. Pain may also be experienced in the buttocks or down in the leg.

What are the treatment options for low back pain?
Since the causes of lower back pain can be several, the best course of treatment depends on the condition of the patient. This can be determined only after a spinal assessment by an Osteopath. A treatment can be started right after the assessment, if the patient is comfortable in doing so.

If you have been experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned earlier, it is advisable to get an assessment done by a certified Osteopath. Click on the link below to book your appointment, or get in touch with out team.

Neck, Shoulder pain & Stress

Neck Pain
Neck pain is a common problem in adults as well as children. In many cases, the cause is not a serious medical issue. However, the other problems can range from not sleeping in the right position to lifting heavy objects the incorrect way. This makes non-specific, also called as ‘mechanical’ or ‘simple’ neck pain very common. Some common reasons behind neck pain are:

  •    Minor strains and sprains to muscles
  •    Ligaments in the neck
  •    Bad posture may be a contributing factor

*** Those who work a desk job can experience neck pain because of bad posture and prolonged hours of continuous sitting ***

Shoulder Pain

  • Poor posture and frozen shoulder – As the name suggests, a frozen shoulder often restricts movement in the shoulder joint. In extreme cases, complete inhibition of movement may be experienced.
  • Shoulder instability – Due to instability in the shoulder joint, patients may experience an unusually large range of movement. This ailment is also known as hypermobility.
  • Rotator cuff disorders –The term rotator cuff is self-explanatory. It is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder, keep it stable, and enable rotating movement in the shoulder.
  • Acromioclavicular joint disorders – The acromioclavicular joint is located at the top of the shoulder. Disorders related this joint are known as Osteoarthritis. The causes of disorders to this area may range from a fractured humerus (upper arm bone) to a broken collar bone.

Stress
Muscular tension is directly related to emotional stress, and can especially be noticed at the base of the neck, jaw, and head. This can cause bad headaches by irritating the nerves and upsetting blood flow.–9
