Spinal Disorders

Don’t be another statistic

In Australia 80% of the population will suffer from back pain in their lives.
Studies show that osteopathic treatment reduces back pain, increases mobility and speeds the recovery process.

Your osteopath can help:

  • Reduce muscular tension, inflammation and nerve irritation
  • Improve joint mobility
  • Reduce the duration of low back pain episodes
  • Offer advice on posture, exercises and stretching
  • Help prevent future episodes

Osteopaths can be visited without a referral from a GP and are trained to know the difference between uncomplicated back pain and back pain requiring referral to specialist care. In some cases there may be a more serious cause for low back pain such as disc injury, fracture, tumour or infection, which may requiree ongoing specialist support.

Common causes of back pain:

  1. Extensive sitting or standing
  2. Heavy lifting
  3. Injury
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Constipation, irritable bowel syndrome
  6. Hormonal imbalances – menstrual pain, endometriosis
  7. Muscle weakness
  8. Spinal dysfunction / congenital condition
