Back Pain Treatment in Edinburgh
Treatment for back pain is quite simply what chiropractic has built its reputation on. Here at White Tree Chiropractic we offer complimentary online consultations to allow us the opportunity to decide if chiropractic can potentially help you and to see if what we offer is what you are looking for. You will be emailed secure online forms to complete prior to your 15 minute consultation with our chiropractor. If we are the correct clinic for you we offer 45 minute examinations to get to the root of what is causing your pain and create a treatment solution tailored to your unique circumstance.
Your treatment protocol will include hands on care, exercise and if necessary nutrition, and relaxation techniques.
To make sure we are offering what you need there will be two questionnaires for you to complete, one a health and pain questionnaire and the other a stress survey. We also have objective indicators such as Heart Rate Variability, Myovision muscle activation assessment and a complete neurostructural assessment.
One of the reasons back pain is so prevalent is the number of ways that it can come about, along with the cumulative affect of stresses on the body, (consider the camel and the straw principle) and the relative weakness of the low back and its susceptibility to injury. The accumulated stresses include but is not limited to poor posture, minor injuries, stress (both emotional and physical) and the lack of exercise, or incorrect use of the back during exercise.
The details are a bit too much for this article, but rest assured we will take you through step by step the reasons for back pain, and help you build a routine that will not only alleviate your current discomfort but also give you the knowledge and the tools to look after your back in the long term.
If you have questions, please get in touch, book your consultation and we will start the process of answering them for you.
Each presenting case of back pain requires a thorough history and examination to determine, not only which parts of the back are sending the pain signals, but also what the underlying reasons for the back pain are. Some are obvious, some are less obvious, hence the time taken to establish what has happened/is happening.
Following the history and examination I will present my findings to the you and explain in as much or as little detail as you want what is happening and what can be done to correct it.
There is no magic pill, do not expect to be sent on your way with a simple answer that will suddenly change everything. In order to truly resolve back pain, requires effort, both on my part (I can promise you that) and from you.
Some people require more exercises than others, some a solution from left field that they were not expecting, but the simple equation for resolving the underlying issue is effort. People who do the things I ask, and don’t do the things I ask them not to do, get the best and longest lasting results.
I also understand how busy lives are nowadays and so the exercises are (mostly) designed to be built into your routine so as not to add additional stress to your life.
