Alvechurch Osteopaths. Joint & Back Pain Treatment
Are you suffering with back pain?
Back pain is a huge problem with increased ongoing concern. In addition, there are many different causes of back pain and variations.
Here at Dynamic Osteopaths in Alvechurch we see many different variations of back pain, all of which are treated in different ways to reduce pain and to restore functional mobility.
What is causing my back pain?
As mentioned above, there are many different kinds and causes of back pain. Most common mentioned below:
Non-specific low back pain
Often as a result of poor posture or bad lifting habits.
This is a progressive condition that is often brought on as a result of age related degenerative changes to the vertebral discs and joints. As we age, joints and soft tissues cannot deal with added stresses and strains and therefore as prone to irritation.
Sciatica is an umbrella term that refers to irritation of the sciatic nerve as it exits the spine. Irritation of the sciatic nerve can often give symptoms into the buttock and leg.
Sciatica is often brought on in 2 common forms – 1) acute trauma - resulting in disc prolapse into the nerve, 2) progressive spinal disc degeneration and consequently bone growth into an exiting nerve root.
Sacroiliac joint pain
The sacroiliac joint is the joint between the spine and the pelvis which allows and transmits forces between the two structures. Even though the sacroiliac joint is a very strong joint with very limited movement, like any of a joint, this can become irritated and inflamed. The sacroiliac joint can be irritated due to many reasons, from biomechanical strain to systemic inflammatory arthritis.
All of the conditions above are very common but can be treated easily with the correct treatment and advice. Surgery should be a last resort, when symptoms are to far gone. Or, when red flags are shown, like incontinence.
