Most people will suffer at least one episode of back pain during their lives which can be painful, debilitating and persistent. It can be associated with other symptoms, such as leg pain or sciatica, or start following a specific incident, such as bending awkwardly. It may develop gradually, perhaps as a result of poor posture or an uncomfortable work position and may be reoccurring if left untreated.
Symptoms of sciatica include pain, numbness, a tingling sensation radiating from the lower back and travelling down one of the legs to the foot and toes, and weakness in the calf muscles or the muscles that move the foot and ankle. Pain can range from mild discomfort to very acute – slipped discs or wear and tear being the most common reasons for sciatica.
Neck pain can happen at any time and doesn’t have to be related to any serious underlying condition and can simply be caused by poor posture, tension in the neck or shoulders, poor sleeping patterns or injury. As we get older, the shock-absorbing pads between the bones of the neck (known as intervertebral discs) can narrow, causing stiffness, pain and make it difficult to move. Chiropractic treatment can help to reduce and eliminate symptoms.
Many causes of leg, hip and knee pain can be helped with chiropractic care. Sometimes the cause may be related to problems in the lower back, dysfunction with gait or the individual joints.
Migraine headaches usually present as one sided, pulsating pain of moderate or severe intensity and may present with or without visual disturbances or altered taste. They can stem from nerve stress in the vertebrae of the neck or can be triggered by muscle tension.
Lasting from 4-72 hours and can include symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and phonophobia.
