Back pain is a universal human experience — almost everyone will suffer from it at some point.
Top West end Osteopath Specializes in Lower Back Pain
Getting through your day with back pain can take its toll day-to-day.
Low back pain can affect your home life, too.
Back pain can make it harder to sleep — and when you can’t sleep, your back pain may be worse.
It is important to understand that back pain is a symptom of a medical condition, not a diagnosis itself.
Perhaps the most common mechanical cause of back pain is a condition called intervertebral disc degeneration, which simply means that the discs located between the vertebrae of your spine are breaking down with age.
Another cause of back pain is the wearing down of the facet joints, which are the large joints that connect each vertebrae to another.
Getting an accurate diagnosis from a West end specialist regarding the cause of your back pain is critical, because different diagnoses will require very different treatment approaches.
The good news is, when treated properly in the majority of cases, back pain does not require surgery.
Are you Suffering from Chronic Back Pain?
Chronic back pain is defined as pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer, even after an initial injury or underlying cause of acute low back pain has been treated.
The occurrence of chronic lower back pain often begins after a spinal injury such as a strained muscle, sprained ligament or herniated disc.
While lower back pain is extremely common, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain vary greatly. Depending on the cause, low back pain can cause a range of symptoms.
Low back pain can also cause leg symptoms, such as pain, numbness, or tingling, often extending below the knee.
Often, muscular irritation and upper back pain is due to either lack of strength or overuse injuries (such as repetitive motions).

Exercises for lower back pain can strengthen back, stomach, and leg muscles. In many cases, back pain is the result of overextending or straining the muscles in the lower back.
Because the upper back pain is related to large muscles in the shoulder area, most rehabilitation programs will include a great deal of stretching and strengthening exercises.
If back pain has left you inactive for a long time, a rehabilitation program can help you strengthen your muscles and get back to your daily activities.
After an episode of low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended.
In many cases, it is difficult to ascertain the precise cause of back pain, so chronic back pain treatment in West end can be a long process.
