Back Pain Treatment Carlton North

Oak Park Family Chiropractic offer quality chiropractic care for back pain to local residents in Carlton North & surrounding areas.

Lower back pain is an extremely common condition with up to 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some time during the lives. Although the underlying pathology of low back pain is usually not serious, it is an important cause of pain in the community and has considerable impact on the economy due to time taken off work. Sometimes back pain may go away on its own, but the cause of that pain may still be there.  This leads to regular ‘flare ups’ and reduced mobility as it slowly develops into chronic back pain and degeneration.

Causes of Back Pain

Most causes of back pain are the result of accumulative irritation from poor posture, slips, trips and falls and a lack of exercise leading to joint inflammation, muscle spasm and reduced range of motion.  Such irritation can be the result of Vertebral Joint Dysfunction, a common condition that occurs when spinal vertebrae become sprained or irritate the delicate nerve structure of your back.

Other causes of lower back pain include inflammatory arthritis (e.g. ankylosis spondylitis, Rheumatoid arthritis), and fractures due to osteoporosis. Back pain may also be ‘referred’ from another location.

Less common conditions causing low back pain include cancer (usually from another source such as the prostate or lung), serious infections and compression of the spinal cord.
