Our Newcastle under Lyme Chiropractor Explains What Your Back Pain is Trying To Tell You

back care advice from our newcastle under lyme chiropractorAt one time or another, most people feel the misery of lower back pain. Think about it; the upright spine is as unique to being human as having an opposable thumb. But where it’s easy to see that using our hands and fingers involves every aspect of life, we can’t always say the same about our backs.

We’ve all said things like “My back went out” or “I must have hurt my back”. But these flippant statements fall short of an adequate explanation for back pain. There is always a reason for back pain; it may be common but it’s certainly not normal.

If you’re suffering from back pain, it’s important to distinguish between chronic and acute pain. Acute pain is typically intense and lasts from a few days to several weeks. This kind of pain is generally due to sprains and strains and usually gets better within just a few weeks. Chronic pain, on the other hand, lasts longer than three months. This kind of pain is typically more complicated when it comes to forming a causative diagnosis.

There is a lot to consider when it comes to evaluating the cause of your pain. Our Newcastle under Lyme chiropractor has put together the following check list for you to consider as possible reasons for your back pain:

  • Physical stress on the spine
  • Having a sedentary job
  • A lack of exercise
  • Psychological issues
  • Depression, stress or anxiety
  • Sudden changes in your physical routine
  • Poor sleeping patterns
  • How well you deal with stress
  • Aging
  • Previous injuries or traumas, such as car accidents and sports injuries
  • Unknown predispositions
  • Medical problems
  • Poor posture
  • Unhealthy habits such as having a  poor diet or smoking

Bear in mind that the complex structure of the human spine makes it prone to accidental sprains and strains. These types of incidents are by far the most common cause of lower back pain. Sprains usually occur when ligaments are overstretched or torn from their attachments. Strains happen when muscles are ripped or torn. Poor posture alone can cause sprains and strains, so it’s always important to consider lifestyle factors when it comes to evaluating the cause of your back problems. The good news is that most of the things that put you at risk of developing back pain can be changed or even eradicated from your life.

Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t quite right. Don’t ignore it; it is there for a reason. You wouldn’t let an itch go without scratching it, would you?

I don’t know what I’d do without my monthly appointment. My movement vastly improved and there has been a reduction in persistent when I discovered this clinic.

After being diagnosed with BPPV Vertigo I was really suffering and after not really making any progress with the Betahistine prescribed by the Doctor at the Royal Stoke I decided to see Dr Finn, who has previously resolved other muscular and skeletal injuries for myself and my family. With BPPV Vertigo being an issue with the inner ear I wasn’t sure if this was something he could resolve promptly ? The clinic fitted me in really quickly and after just two short visits my BPPV was fully resolved. After spending so much time on 111 and at the hospital I was relieved at how swiftly and efficiently Dr Finn resolved my BPPV, which was really bad. I can fully recommend this clinic for this and other treatments in a professional and effective manner. 10/10

My wife was suddenly in real pain around her hip area and upon making a phone call to Newcastle Chiropractic was given an immediate appointment. With a total of no more than 20 minutes she was feeling a lot less pain and doing gentle walking as recommended by Rob. She’s very grateful with a lot less pain and feeling mobile again.

I first started seeing Rob in 1998 when he took over from Jane Hvas at the Brampton Clinic. I have now been a patient of Robs for 25 years. I don't know what I would have done without the treatment and support I have re eived from him. He's simply the best.

Dott. Burcu Cetinkaya is the best chiropractor I've ever been treated by, and I've had many. Since the first visit at the clinic I've been examinated and listened very carefully about my problems and I've been given a personalised plan of treatment and exercises straight away. I've been checked vertebra by vertebra and rettified my posture, basically if there is a problem she will find out and I've never been so happy with my back, my problems they're gone and my posture is the best ever. I can't thank dott. Burcu enough even if an emergency occurred she has been always available and makes me feel safe.
Not the last the ladies on reception are the kindest ever. The clinic service is a 5 star ???? all round. Thank you ???? ???? ????????
