Low and Mid-Back Pain

If you’ve ever suffered from pain in your lower or mid-back, you will undoubtedly be aware of just how much of a burden it can be. In most cases, back pain will last no more than 4-6 weeks and will usually disappear by itself well before this. This is referred to as acute back pain and can often be managed by over-the-counter medication.

Chronic back pain can be incredibly debilitating making even day-to-day tasks a challenge. It also usually lasts a lot longer, can be recurring and often won’t respond to medication. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we have many years of experience in providing chiropractic treatment for low and mid-back pain in Dubai.

In the case of chronic back pain, there could be an underlying issue that’s causing the problem. If left unchecked, this could result in permanent damage. It is essential that you look after your back, so if you’re in pain and are concerned, book an appointment with one of our chiropractors today.

Causes

You might have heard of the term ‘non-specific back pain’. In short, this refers to back pain which has no apparent cause or, rather, the cause is unknown. In most cases low and mid-back pain is a result of a strain or sprain brought about by actions such as:

  • Sporting activities
  • Lifting heavy objects with your legs rather than your back
  • Sudden jerking actions while moving
  • Sleeping in an awkward position
  • Incorrect posture while sitting at a desk

It’s rare that back pain is caused by anything serious although there are medical conditions that could be responsible such as sciatica or a slipped disc. Our chiropractors in Dubai will be able to tell you if you suffer from a medical condition that may be contributing towards your low or mid-back pain.

Finally, violent trauma, for instance, as a result of a fall from height or a car accident can also cause back injuries – even a broken back in more serious cases.

Treatments

Whatever the cause, if back pain is having a detrimental impact on your life, be sure to call us for treatment for low and mid-back pain in Dubai. Our consultation will focus on your medical history, and we will conduct a full examination to assess your spine, neck and extremities. If a medical condition is suspected, we are equipped to run lab tests, so you receive an accurate diagnosis.

At Blue Tree Clinics, we employ a wide range of techniques such as spinal manipulation which involves high-velocity, short lever arm thrusts which are usually applied to abnormal vertebra. Another method – mobilisation – involves low-velocity manipulation, stretching of both the joints and muscles. The main goal with both treatment methods is to reduce any irritation to the nerves while restoring functionality and range of motion.

To top it all off, our chiropractors in Dubai can even provide you with advice on nutrition, devise a bespoke exercise plan and even offer counselling. All treatments are tailored to the needs of the patient and with our help, you’ll be on the road to recovery in no time.

Testimonial

“I’ve always suffered with back pain and used to try and ignore it. I’m glad I stopped as it turned out my pain was the result of a prolapsed disc. After an initial consultation, I was booked in for spinal manipulation, the guys were really helpful and within weeks my back pain had all but subsided.”
