Back pain and what causes it – Bexleyheath Chiropractor Kris Krumins Shares His Insight

It’s a fact of life that almost everyone gets back pain at some point, but staying active and with the help of chiropractic, may well be the best solution.

At Bexleyheath Chiropractic Clinic, many of our patients back pain comes from everyday activities and often they may have fallen into bad practices and put stress on points of their body which eventually have a painful reaction.

For instance, many people have poor posture which leads to back pain.

This can be from sitting at desk for many hours, slouching while watching TV or sleeping in a bed that has a mattress that is too hard or soft.

Back pain is also caused by hunching your back and shoulders in stressful situations.

On top of these issues, our chiropractors in Bexleyheath also see patients present themselves with back pain caused by simple things like tying their shoelaces.

Some people may have hurt their back by simply lifting a weight that is too heavy for them or using the wrong technique to lift the heavy object.

Repeated daily activities such as bending, lifting and twisting, as well as other lifestyle factors may result in back pain.

When you attend a chiropractic clinic the chiropractor will make an initial assessment of your pain and its potential causes – which means you will be asked about your everyday activities.

Chiropractic is the treatment of the symptoms of back pain through gentle, specific manipulation of muscle tissue and for treating the cause to help prevent a repeat episode.

This effective treatment is generally painless, although you may feel some short-term discomfort if your back is already very sore.

In addition, a chiropractor will also advise on a course of exercises to be carried out by the patient and tips on a healthier lifestyle as well as information on avoiding future back pain.
