How osteopathy can help to address back pain

Back pain is one of the primary reasons that patients seek osteopathic care. Osteopathic treatment can help you to address lower back pain, while your osteopath can also advise you as to steps that you can take to prevent the occurrence of back pain, and to manage an existing condition more carefully.

Our modern lifestyles impact significantly on our back health, whether it be from sitting at a desk or computer all day, the fast pace of life which means we take less exercise, or the trend for carrying shoulder bags and laptop satchels, there is much that we do day-to-day that affects our well-being, in particular the strength and flexibility of our backs.

An osteopath will show you ways to reduce the duration of lower back pain episodes and also to prevent them reoccurring. Your osteopath will be able to offer you personalised guidance and an exercise programme that will show you how to stretch properly and to improve your posture so that you don’t aggravate an existing condition even further.

Osteopathic therapy is a positive way to approach the treatment of back problems because it seeks to remove the underlying causes of pain and discomfort rather than only treating the symptoms. It is non-invasive and seeks to help the body to heal itself by restoring natural balance and enabling it to function properly once more.
