Low Back Disc Injury
Back pain and low back pain does not always arise immediately after an injury because the body is very good at adapting to injuries and accommodating strains and stresses. However, the disruption to spinal mechanics brought about by injury can cause strain to build up over a period of time and symptoms begin. Osteopaths are skilled in assessing the mechanics of the whole body, and in particular the spine.
The gentle techniques of cranial osteopathy are particularly useful for feeling deeply into the body, locating where the body might be carrying the effects of stresses and strains, and helping the body release these tensions. This may relieve pain and discomfort, and helps restore the normal ease of movement of the spine. By addressing the body as a whole, Osteopaths are able to treat even severe chronic low back pain with ease and perfection. Since the whole mechanics of the spine are addressed, Patients get long lasting results.
