Low Back Pain
Low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, affecting most people at some point during their lives. Most cases of low back pain are mechanical, meaning the pain originates from the musculoskeletal system and is not caused by a serious condition.
The 'Spinal Pain Model of Care' issued by the Western Australian Government Department of Health, deems spinal manipulation to be an effective treatment for the most common causes of low back pain.
By taking a joint through its full range of motion, chiropractic adjustments correct dysfunctional patterns of joint movement.
Chiropractic can help to reduce pain by relieving pressure on the nerve and reducing surrounding inflammation.
By increasing flexibility and relieving muscle tightness, chiropractic aims to prevent muscle spasm and scar tissue formation.
Sometimes called “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis is the most common chronic condition of the joints.
A condition in which a vertebra in your spine slides forward on the vertebra below it, most often occurring in the lower back.
A tear in the disc between your vertebrae allows the soft, central portion to bulge out causing inflammation and compression.
