Suffering from back pain in Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray is a very common condition for adults of all ages and 80% of adults will experience some sort of back pain at some point in their lives. Most cases of back pain are associated with pain and stiffness within the lower back. Back pain can also vary within individuals as some people have minor episodes of acute back pain before making a full recovery and other people may have longer period of mild to moderate back pain which is interrupted by periods of severe pain which could make them unable to undertake normal daily activities.
Low Back Pain is the leading cause of days off work, especially in jobs that require a lot of manual handling.
One in five people will visit their GP in a year due to back problems, there are also 2 types of classified back pain, one being Specific Back Pain which is pain that is associated with an underlying health condition or damage to the spine and then there is Non Specific Back Pain which is pain that is not caused by serious damage or disease but by sprains, minor injuries or a trapped or irritated nerve.
Non specific back pain is a diagnosis of exclusion, that means you have to rule out the more serious reasons for back pain first. This requires a detailed examination first, not a quick off the cuff 10 minute exam. Spinal manipulation coupled with specific rehabilitation techniques can be very successful with non specific back pain.
There are also a couple of different classifications that back pain is put into for example Acute Back Pain which is pain that does not last more than 6 weeks and then there is Chronic Back Pain where the pain lasts for more than 6 weeks. Research has shown that the longer a back problem persists for the greater the increase in future disability, and therefore is a leading cause of inability to continue working.
