Back pain is one of the most common complaints in our society. You might have acute back pain from lifting something awkwardly or from being sat down too long. Or you might have chronic pain that has been troubling you for years.
In my experience in clinic, chronic back pain is very often a symptom of a problem elsewhere. If a problem elsewhere is creating the issue then our treatment process needs to address this, as well as actually easing the area of complaint.
I often use the analogy of having a leaking roof that causes a wet patch on your ceiling. You know you need to change the ceiling tile, or repaint the area. But if you do that immediately, you are only going to have to do it again shortly after.
What you really need to do is find out where the water is coming from, isolate it, deal with that and then you can repair your ceiling or repaint, knowing that the cause of the problem has been dealt with.
When you have back pain, of course we are going to do everything we can to give you immediate relief. But then we need to work out what is creating the problem.
“Fire fighting” or dealing with symptoms in the short term is very important, especially when you are in very acute pain.
But to deliver lasting results and really improve someone’s quality of life we need to use an investigative mind combined with a sensitive assessment and effective treatment process.
My goal is to get you off that treatment treadmill and put you back in the drivers seat.
