Back Pain And Sciatica

Back pain is the most common complaint seen by Chiropractors, with most people suffering from back pain at some point. Chiropractic treatment, unlike painkillers treats the cause of the problem rather than masking the symptoms.

Back pain is multifactorial, meaning it has many causes such as strains/sprains to joints and muscles and nerve problems such as sciatica. Many low back problems are caused by what is called “recurrent micro trauma,”which means small repetitive injuries, until the proverbial “last straw.” This is why people hurt themselves doing very different, often trivial things. Once the injury has occurred the nerve signals pain, resulting in the surrounding muscles going into spasm acting like a protective splint. Chiropractic treatment alleviates muscle spasm and improves joint mobility allowing your body to heal the injury. Those suffering from recurrent episodes of back pain often have an underlying weakness, which if unaddressed will continue to cause problems. At Harborne Chiropractic Clinic we thoroughly enjoy the challenge of helping all types of back pain.

Testimonials

We are proud to having a clinic based on referrals, here are what some of our patients say…

The first time I went to see Lizzy was in August and I was in a bad way. I had been suffering for at least 4 years with headaches, a really stiff neck, sore shoulders and lower back pain. I didn’t quite know what to expect at first? I needn’t have worried at all. Lizzy was fantastic with me, and put me at ease almost straight away. On my first visit Lizzy gave me a complete and thorough neuro-orthopedic examination, a complete description of the problems I had been putting up with, and a full and comprehensive treatment plan. I am now feeling much better and off painkillers as well. Which is a miracle all things considered!

ANDREW
Neck & Headache Sufferer

I went to see Guy just over two weeks ago with lower back pain and a problem with my right knee, both of which made walking, and particularly golf very uncomfortable. Like many a golfer, I had resorted to using Iboprufen to help me get through a round. Guy immediately suggested that I actually had a problem with my hip, and after a short consultation started to work on me. After a couple of visits, where he only gave me a deep massage treatment, he then started some gentle adjustments. After just two weeks, I am pleased to say that I am walking without a limp, I am completing 18 holes of golf without a problem and for the first time in over a year, I am actually playing to my handicap. Many thanks Guy.

RICHARD
Golfer

When I came to Lizzie I was truly broken. I had head, neck and shoulder issues that meant that I took a lot of pain killers. I also had tennis elbow which had prevented me from playing golf (…go figure!) for nearly a year, and I had an upper arm injury caused by a handbag. I had visited two other professionals (a chiro and a physio) over the course of the previous 12 months but neither had been able to ‘sort me out’. Then, as if by some miracle, Lizzie put her finger on the problem(s) during the first assessment/treatment session. Three months on, I am playing golf, the handbag injury has gone and most importantly of all, I am no longer taking pain killers to ‘mask’ the neck/head problem.

I first went to Lizzy just after Christmas 2012. I was in so much pain I couldn’t function. The pain ran down my neck and across my shoulders. Lizzy diagnosed Thorasic Outlet Syndrome and I began treatment. Lizzy has a friendly attentive approach that allows you to put your trust in her. Her treatments ranged from simple adjustments to stretching and the use of acupuncture. 6 Months on I’m virtually pain free and back running a very busy life! Lizzy first treated Shannon after a fall at school. Shannon is a National swimmer and her fall was 2 days before South East Regional Swimming Championships. Lizzy treated her and although she couldn’t do Regionals the pain she was in was significantly relieved. When 12 months later Shannon hurt her shoulder she wanted to see Lizzy. She was fantastic and through adjustments, massage and acupuncture Lizzy got Shannon through Regional Championships, swimming three National Qualifying Times
