Over a long period of time (years) our bodies change structurally and pressure on the joints can lead to pain or discomfort that can then become worse over time. At Active Spinal Care, we want to correct this and prevent this in the future.
Daily activities, such as bending, driving, lifting, twisting and repetitive movements may result in a ‘bad back’. Your chiropractor will want to understand how you tackle these everyday movements and will give advice on this. You may be asked about any major traumas to your back such as: car accidents, falls, sporting injuries, lifting heavy objects and any underlying conditions, which may have an impact on your spine.
In some cases you may be experiencing leg pain which may be referred from the lower back. After a thorough medical case history and full examination, Dr Baillie will endeavour to explain the cause of your pain and treat you accordingly, if appropriate.
At Active Spinal Care, we believe we should treat the cause of your pain and not just the pain itself. We will try and discover the cause of your back pain, through orthopaedic testing and offer a diagnosis of your complaint.
