Suffering from low back pain, Can’t find prolonged solutions?
Low back pain is a widespread problem that most people experience to some degree at some point in their life.
Chronic low back pain, ongoing or recurrent pain that lasts for more than three months is the leading cause of disability and work absence in most countries worldwide. It causes an enormous economic burden on individuals, families, communities, industry and governments.
LOW BACK PAIN CONDITIONS THAT RESPOND WELL TO OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT INCLUDE:
1. muscle or ligament strain -pulled muscle
2. lumbar spinal joint dysfunction – joint’s gone out
3. sciatica – pinched nerve in the lower back with pain shooting to the buttock, leg and foot
4. disc prolapse – slipped disc
5. scoliosis – bent spinal curvature
6. failed back syndrome – failed surgery
7. spondylolisthesis – slipped vertebra
8. Arthritis – bone on bone
Many environmental and personal factors influence the course of low back pain. Without appropriate management, most people who have a painful experience of lower back pain have recurrent incidents, often experiencing symptoms, such as ache and stiffness, and limitations of activity, between episodes.
Low back pain may arise from several anatomical structures, including bones, intervertebral discs, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. It can affect anyone, of any age, of any weight, of any level of fitness, of any occupation.
Osteopathic treatment can relieve acute and chronic lower back pain, stiffness and other symptoms and restore function by improving range of motion, reducing fibrosis and adhesions, remodeling tissue architecture, stimulating tissue regeneration, improving blood supply and nerve activity.
Long-term resolution can be achieved by identifying and managing underlying causative and maintaining factors.
