Low Back Pain
The 3 most common types of low back pain a chiropractor see's are from the lumbar facet joints, the sacroiliac joint or the intervertebral discs. We're trained to diagnose these but only after ruling out other less common causes such as tumours, infections or neurological disease.
A very common presentation to chiropractic or physioHealth clinics is shoulder pain frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, impingement or AC joint sprain are examples. Some of these are due to obvious injury, others build up over time and are often due to problems with the positioning and control of the shoulder joints
Neck pain can be acute or chronic, with or without headaches, injury related like whiplash or due to posture or even sleeping badly. As with the low back its important to diagnoses whether the intervertebral discs, the facet joints, ligaments or muscles are causing the pain.
There is good evidence for treatment of cervicogenic headache which originate from the joints or muscles around the neck. Treatment for migraine can be effective depending on the severity, although they can't be cured there is evidence of reduced frequency of attacks.
