Take Control of Your Back Pain at Sussex Back Pain Clinic
Struggling with Back Pain? You Are Not Alone.
Did you know that at any given moment, 25% of us are suffering from back pain? Its intensity can range from mild discomfort to severe and debilitating episodes that might prevent us from standing upright or living our daily lives.
Understanding Back Pain
It’s important to know that while back pain could occasionally indicate serious health concerns, in most cases, it’s linked to less severe issues. Only about 1% of back pain cases are due to serious diseases. In around 5-6% of cases, it’s related to disc problems.
Back pain can result from direct injury, like trauma from a fall, a car accident, sports injury, or even strain from activities like gardening or DIY projects. Degenerative changes or osteoarthritis can also cause discomfort.
However, the most common type of back pain is what we refer to as non-specific or simple back pain, which is anything but simple. It often starts without any obvious cause and gradually worsens over time. This type of back pain is complex, usually resulting from a mix of risk factors that disrupt the normal mechanics of your spine.
Tackling Back Pain
Contrary to popular belief, back pain doesn’t always improve within six weeks. Research shows that it’s more likely to become a recurring problem with regular flare-ups. If you’ve had back pain once, you are at risk of experiencing it again. In fact, 40% of back pain sufferers experience recurrent, intermittent, and episodic pain.
At Sussex Back Pain Clinic, as well as addressing your pain we also look at any risk factors that might lead to further occurrences.
Your Back Pain Treatment Plan
Our expert Osteopaths and Physiotherapists are trained to assess the mechanics of your spine, identify any areas of trauma or stress, and restore your spine to its proper function. They use gentle corrective techniques and offer lifestyle, posture, and exercise advice.
Medication can often provide temporary relief, but it may come with side effects and doesn’t address the underlying issues causing your back pain. That’s where our comprehensive approach comes in. We aim to not only alleviate your pain but also address the root cause to prevent future occurrences.
For patients with disc-related back pain, we might recommend a course of IDD Therapy Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression treatment. This therapy has successfully provided relief to hundreds of patients suffering from chronic low back pain.
