Osteopathy and Back Pain

Osteopathy and Back Pain

Osteopathy is a manual approach that focuses on the musculoskeletal pain and injury. It is often used to help manage and treat back pain and joint problems by addressing issues related to posture, alignment, and muscle function. Osteopaths use manual hands on techniques to manipulate the body's tissues and joints to promote healing and relieve pain. If you're experiencing back pain or joint injuries, you may want to consider consulting an osteopath for an evaluation and potential treatment options.

Back Pain

Acute and chronic back pain are the 2 main tyoes of pain

Acute Back Pain:

Acute back pain comes on suddenly and typically lasts for a short duration, often a few days to a few weeks. It is usually caused by a specific injury or trauma to the back, such as lifting a heavy listing or sport.

Acute back pain can be highly painful and severe but is usually short lived and tends to improve with rest, conservative treatments and he correct advice. Treatment may involve rest, pain medications, physical and manual therapy, and addressing the underlying cause and predisposing factors.

Chronic Back Pain:

Chronic back pain persists for an extended period, typically lasting for more than 3 months and an result from an initial injury or condition that has not healed correct. However, chronic back pain can be far more complex and may involve many different factors, including psychological, structural, and lifestyle-related aspects. Treatment for chronic back pain often requires a multidisciplinary approach, including physical and manual therapy, pain management options, lifestyle modifications, and sometimes surgery in severe cases. It is essential to consult with a musculoskeletal healthcare professional for a correct diagnosis and personalised treatment plan.
