Treating Different Types of Back Pain

Edited by Dr. Peter Roennfeldt – Chiropractor (B.App.Sc.(Clin)/B.Chiro.Sc)

If you are reading this then there is a good chance that you appreciate the complicated nature of back pain. Causes and aggravations can vary greatly; for example there are numerous patients that describe immense pain triggered by simple movements. Sometimes as simple as sitting in a chair and slightly bending forwards. Other patients describe triggers from vulnerable positions or some form of trauma for example a fall onto the back or the over-reaching stretch for an object.

Treat the Cause not the Symptom

The good news is that so many of these conditions are successfully treated when we take the time to treat the real cause of the problem, as opposed to treating only the symptoms. More specifically this is about the connection between the muscles, skeleton, nervous system, and all the systems within the body.

This holistic approach is one of the reasons that chiropractors are so popular with back pain sufferers, where the treatment revolves more around the individual’s function and a person’s ability to move freely. Such treatments are effective for everyone and anyone with or without back pain, which is a common misconception in that many people believe the only treatment worthy of pursuing chiropractic care is a ‘slipped disc’. The fact remains that many structures in the upper and lower back can cause varying degrees of pain or problems, yet they are all interconnected and proper healing of the tissues is not possible until proper function is restored. This complex nature of addressing the systems and mechanisms involved is one of the reasons why a chiropractor will dedicate at least five full years to studying and acquire a formal qualification in becoming an expert in spinal care. Also Chiropractors in Australia are required to undergo ongoing training through seminars just to stay up to date with the latest knowledge and to be able to stay registered.

Common Problems related to the Spine

Indeed the anatomy of the spine and nervous system is truly bewildering when you study the form it takes, and the incredible tasks that are performed as part of our daily routines. The downside is that this stress can cause problems eventually resulting in pain from things such as:

  • Nerve damage
  • Fractured bones
  • Scar tissue formation
  • Damage to discs in the spine
  • Joint capsule damage
  • Muscle tears or strains
  • Ligament damage

Just to name a few.

So when we stop to consider that the body has an amazing ability to self heal and self regulate, it becomes apparent that in order for these things to heal to their experienced ability we need to make sure that proper function is restored and maintained.

Useful Information for Ongoing Spinal Health

Some Key points to remember are:

  • Very often people will try and isolate a problem in the body to a single tissue or area and by doing so they lose sight of the bigger picture of what is actually happening.
  • Rather that focusing on only the symptoms it is extremely important to focus also on the overall function of the tissues and systems involved so that you can get back to doing the things you love faster and without limitations.
  • Specifically if you lose movement or function to one area of your body and eventually get pain, it is also going to affect another area of the body as well as other systems of your body.
  • If proper function is not restored and maintained within the body then it is only a matter of time before something gives. The end result being that tissues become inflamed and cause pain.
  • Not only do your tissues heal faster and properly when functioning properly but they also become stronger to the demands that you place on them

In Conclusion: Addressing Types of Back Pain (Upper or Lower)

The most important thing is that people get a proper understanding of exactly what is going on with their upper back pain and lower back pain so that they know exactly what is going on and the tests that are required to show they are getting better regarding the areas that are causing the pain and the other areas and systems that are also affected by this.
