Back pain is a very common problem affecting most people at some time in their life. Given time, most acute back pain will settle. Appropriate treatment will normally speed up the natural healing process by creating favourable tissue tension and by stabilising painful structures.
Recurring symptoms are commonly linked to ongoing asymmetry or imbalance in structure or function. Chronic pain results when steps in the healing process are hindered. The reasons for a lack of normal healing and symptomatic recurrence can be many and varied although excessive muscle tension due to postural stereotype is normally involved. Chronic pain is almost always associated with an overprotective pain system. Anything over three months could be considered chronic. We run chronic pain recovery education courses.
At Currumbin beach Chiropractic we love to problem solve. Most back pain has an easy solution. The path to recovery is harder for some than others. Sometimes the problem at hand is beyond our scope and an appropriate referral will be made.
Sometimes a degree of dedication is also required of the patient although no-one should ever be expected to continue a treatment program without projected outcomes.
