Back Pain & Sciatica

In the UK up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some stage in their lives. 95% of this back pain is of a mechanical origin and can be treated by a Chiropractor.

Some conditions causing back pain can also present with sciatic pain down either or both legs. Espina Chiropractic Clinic frequently deals with all these conditions and can help relieve the pain and discomfort.

Back pain and sciatica

There are a number of reasons why you may be experiencing pain in your back, or irritation in your Sacro-Iliac joint. These causes can simply include muscle spasm, muscle strains, ligament sprains and also referred pain.

At Espina Chiropractic Clinic we frequently hear people say, “I was bending over to pick something up and my back just went”. A common misdiagnosis of back pain is that of disc problems, when it can quite often be attributed to a few muscles and joints not working as they would normally. At Espina Chiropractic Clinic we will assess your condition thoroughly to ensure your treatment is appropriate to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.

Wantage Chiropractor Dan Ruby uses a number of techniques along with Chiropractic manipulation to ensure your treatment is optimised to aid recovery. These techniques include muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release, mobilisation, rehabilitation and detailed gait analysis.

Back pain can have a significant impact on people’s lives. It frequently reduces their quality of life and adversely affects their family and social relationships. This shouldn’t be the case, and in most patients the problem does not require a lot of treatment, responding well to Chiropractic care very quickly.

For those patients that do have a disc herniation, it is not uncommon to experience associated pins and needles, numbness and muscle weakness or other neurological symptoms in the lower limbs as a consequence.

Degeneration of the spine and nerve root irritation due to compression is extremely common later in life and our lives are inevitably affected by the discomfort it causes. Even if you have suffered  with the pain for years you’ll be amazed at how quickly you may recover with the help of Espina Chiropractic.
