Treatment For Back Pain In Cardiff
Treatment For Back Pain
Sometimes we get aches, sometimes we get pains and sometimes it can affect our whole being. It can be hard to live the life we want when pain is getting us down or stopping us do the things that we love.
The good news is that only 1% of low back pain is of a serious cause and more good news is that this Chiropractic clinic in Cardiff can help.
You may be surprised what can cause low back pain, such as the age of a mattress, how you sit, the food you eat, the way you walk, the sport you do, even the way you think about your own pain. Research is changing and this research is showing we need to image (X-ray, MRI) less and increase your movement. Also, we thought that core strength matters when it comes to low back pain but research shows us that any sort of movement and activity is what we need.
How can Chiropractic help?
Did you know that 80% of the time we can tell what is wrong just through talking to you? The rest involves examining how you move, muscle and nerve tests and then deciding what is the best treatment for you. Obviously the longer you have had low back pain the longer it can take to correct. This is why we make a plan of management that we want you to stick to, to get the best results. If you are looking for a quick fix then this might not be the right option for you.
I have found over the years some patients will go to multiple clinicians hoping that that person will be the one to get them better in that session, only to find the same results as all of the others. There is no magic bullet for your body, most issues have taken a long time to come to light which is why it can take a little time for the body to get better and heal. By skipping treatments and trying many different clinicians can be annoying, frustrating and create dissolution for the patient. I'm serious about getting you better so expect you to be serious about you wanting to get better! Take the plunge, I did and this is the reason I became a chiropractor myself!
