Treating back pain begins with the right diagnosis
At Central Coast Osteopath, we are qualified to recognise the difference between uncomplicated back pain and more serious back pain that requires referral to a specialist. As you don’t need a referral from a GP to see us, we can be your first port of call to diagnose the root cause of your back pain and recommend the appropriate course of action.
When assessing you, we will take into account many lifestyle factors that could cause or contribute to your back pain, including your sleep and exercise habits, what you do for work, the ergonomics of your work/study environment and your posture.
Once we have diagnosed the type and cause of your back pain, we will tailor a comprehensive treatment program for you consisting of a combination of massage, joint mobilisation techniques and gentle stretching exercises to get you back on your feet and help you manage your condition on an ongoing basis.
Did you know 8 in 10 people in Australia will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives?
If you are one of the 80% of the population that is suffering from back pain right now, you will know how debilitating back pain can be and how much it can impede on other areas of your life.
Whether your back pain came on suddenly (perhaps as a result of an injury) or has been troubling you for a long time (chronic pain), there are many forms back pain and discomfort can take.
You may experience:
- Constant or intermittent pain,
- Pain that is limited to one part of the back,
- Pain that radiates to other areas of the body, such as into the arms and hands and/or down the legs and into the feet,
- A dull ache, sharp pain or a piercing, burning sensation,
- Tingling, weakness or numbness.
No matter what form your back pain takes, you will understand how much it can negatively effect many other areas of your life, such as your ability to exercise, sleep, drive or sit still without discomfort and generally live life to the full.
