Low back pain

Low back pain is the most common cause for being off work in the western world. Repetitive or sedentary work patterns, of which sitting is the worst offender, are the main suspects.

Latest studies show:

  • 85% of us will be disabled by low back pain at some time that could last two weeks or more.
  • 38% of adults report significant episodes of back pain each year which suggests recurring, unresolved low back problems.

This evidence fits well with the clinical experience of chiropractors. Not being able to touch your toes or being stiff after sports are early warning signs. By re-conditioning your spine with treatment, avoiding bad habits and improving your posture, you can prevent becoming a statistic.

The efficacy of chiropractic care of low back pain has been validated by the government body, the medical research council and recognised by the Royal College of GPs (see Contact & Location – Links).

At Battersea Back Clinic you will be given the chance to restore your back to long term health through rehabilitation exercises and maintenance care.

Case Study

Sarah works in advertising. She suffered acute low back pain to the right causing her great pain when sitting at the computer. She was unable to attend her ‘pump’ classes at the gym.

Her history revealed three previous episodes of back pain causing her to take one or two days away from work. Sarah had no history of injury. Signs that she had a low back condition were that her back was progressively stiff early in the morning, after sitting for a long time and after her workouts.

The x-ray of her lumbar spine showed no wear and tear in the bone or the disc. However it showed an imbalance of the pelvis which explained why the condition kept returning.

Sarah was relieved that her pelvic asymmetry could be corrected and was willing to make a few lifestyle changes to help prevent recurrence.

She now has an adjustment every two months to check her progress.
