Lower back pain
LOWER BACK PAIN, BACK SPASM, LOCKED BACK, I’VE PUT MY BACK OUT.
“I’m struggling to bend forward, or to turn my body.”
“I get a sharp stabbing pain when I try to get out of my chair.”
“My back is worse first thing in the morning.
Due to prolonged postures or awkward movements, your back muscles can sometimes be placed under an abnormal biomechanical strain.
This can cause the muscle to go into spasm and to lock up because it can no longer sustain the tension.
Very often, it is ‘normal’ activities like putting on your socks that will be the last straw for your muscles.
Quite often, symptoms will improve within 24 to 48 hours.
However, it can take up to a month for your symptoms to disappear completely.
Our Chiropractor will most likely work on the muscles in spasm with massage and stretches.
Typically, spinal manipulations will be performed to correct any misalignments.
If there is any weakness, exercises can be prescribed to make sure this doesn’t occur again.
A thorough examination by one of our Chiropractors would be recommended to rule out any potential hidden causes to your problem.
There’s always a chance that an underlying biomechanical problem is the reason that your back has locked up in this way.
