Low back pain is the most commonly presented condition to a chiropractor. This is because low back pain is so common, affects all ages and has been estimated to affect 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives (Spinal Manipulation for Low Back-Pain. NCCIH 2013). Pain in the low back can originate from the muscles, ligaments, intervertebral disc, joints, bones, degeneration, nerves and sacroiliac joints. The chiropractor’s role in the treatment of low back pain is to first identify the cause of the problem obtained from thorough functional, neurological and orthopedic assessment. Then rule out any potential underlying pathology and determine if chiropractic care is safe and right for you. We then implement a series of chiropractic adjustments combined with at home exercises and lifestyle modifications aimed at restoring function and addressing the underlying cause of low back pain.
Neck pain can commonly present with other symptoms besides pain such as headaches, pressure on nerves (pins and needles, loss of strength or sensation in the neck or arms), referral of pain to other areas (chest & arms). A chiropractor’s role in the treatment of neck pain is to first identify the cause of the problem obtained from a thorough functional, neurological and orthopedic assessment. Then rule out any potential underlying pathology and determine if chiropractic care is safe and right for you. We then implement a series of chiropractic adjustments combined with at home exercises and lifestyle modifications aimed at restoring function and addressing the underlying cause of neck pain.
Our chiropractors believe that accurate diagnosis of the headache is key to management and treatment. The most common headaches observed are tension, cervicogenic (neck) and migraine (Bryans et al. Evidence-Based Guidelines for the Chiropractic of Adults With Headache. NUOHS 2011).
Tension headaches are the most commonly suffered & can present as a dull constant ache or tightness. They are also often accompanied by neck and shoulder tightness. Common triggers are poor posture, stress, anxiety, poor spinal function and excessive clenching. Chiropractors aim to address postural issues via restoring spinal function in combination with at home exercises & posture techniques to decrease triggers for tension headaches.
Main types of scoliosis are idiopathic (unknown causes), structural: caused by degenerative, traumatic or congenital issues affecting the spine (such as a birth abnormality) and lastly functional scoliosis: due to posture and functional changes. Once you are aware a scoliosis is present it is critical to maintain optimal spinal function. This is achieved with regular chiropractic care aimed to slow or stop further degeneration of the spine in combination with regular exercise and modifying life style factors.
. Sciatica pain varies from a dull pain to a sharp burning pain commonly referring down the legs. It is also associated with pins and needles, strength loss and reflex changes. Common causes of sciatica can be from referred pain sites such as muscles, joints and ligaments of spine. Sciatica treatment will vary depending on the direct cause however will usually consists of specific chiropractic adjustments, at home exercises and coping mechanisms for the inflammation such as ice and heat or anti-inflammatory medication as required.
TMJ or jaw pain can be caused by direct injury to the joint from trauma, improper alignment of jaw, overuse due to excessive chewing or orthodontics and excessive clenching. Wisdom teeth removal is one of the most common causes of TMJ dysfunction that we see regularly in practice. Pain is common and can refer to face, neck and shoulders. It can also present with difficulty chewing, decreased motion, locking, popping, clicking, headaches, dizziness and ear aches. Chiropractic care aims to restore joint function and symmetry via specific muscle releases, mobilizations stretching and is combined with jaw exercises at home.
Common symptoms from whiplash are pain in neck, decreased neck movement, neck stiffness/tightness, referral of pain into shoulders and arms, tingling/numbness in arms and fingers, dizziness/headaches/blurred vision. Treatment consists of determining the severity of damage to the neck structure via thorough history and physical examination. Imaging such as X-ray, CT or MRI may also be required. Treatment is aimed at reducing pain, inflammation, then stabilizing the neck and followed by restoration of function. This is achieved through chiropractic adjustments, mobilizations combined with at home exercises, stretches and lifestyle modifications.
It’s amazing at Back To Front Chiropractic how many children will watch their parent or sibling be adjusted and then climb up on the adjusting table and want to have a go themselves. Our children checkups are all about looking to identify any issues with your childs musculoskeletal system (preferably before puberty starts) before they become a bigger issue.
At Back to Front Chiropractic we pride ourselves on offering chiropractic care for entire families, including babies and toddlers. Babies first check up is exactly that, a check up. We’re looking to identify any issues in your child’s musculoskeletal system that may over time become a bigger issue. Pediatric techniques are very different to adult adjustments and hence it’s important for you to know first exactly what will be done. We talk you through the entire visit allowing you to ask questions all the time. We demonstrate on you first (usually on your forearm or leg) exactly what your baby will experience during their visit.
