Chiropractors treat all your everyday aches and pains, sporting injuries and arthritic complaints. With five years of university education, chiropractors are well trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions including osteoarthritis.
The single most common cause of neck pain and back pain is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is inflammation and stiffness within and around the joints of the spine causing anything from a low grade dull ache to a sharp, shooting, catching pain that can be debilitating. The pain is known as arthralgia and it can be acute, subacute or chronic in nature.
Joints that are inflamed are often associated with muscle spasm and muscle weakness. A thorough physical assessment should identify not only where your pain is coming from but also what made it susceptible to injury in the first place. This physical assessment should identify which joints are inflamed, which muscles are too short or spasmed, which muscles are weak and not supporting the spine properly and also if there are any abnormal movement patterns or instability.
An effective treatment program for back pain should include chiropractic manipulation, massage, stretching techniques and strengthening exercises to restore the body to normal.
