Drysdale Osteopathy Glasgow

I highly recommend David Drysdale without any hesitation. To make my statement short and sweet, I would say ‘he has magic hands’. I felt better right after the first treatment.

Back Pain 

Sore Back, Back Pain, Low Back Pain, SciaticaThere are different types of Back Pain. 

Back Pain can range from muscular stiffness, bony/mechanical pain, deep muscle spasm where any laughing or coughing is very painful, to tooth ache/nervy type pain that is intolerable. Some times on waking up, the back is incredibly stiff, conversely it may feel rested and pain-free. Back pain can ease or worsen throughout the day. It may be better or worse for activity. It may only hurt when standing or it may be pain-free when standing.

There are different causes for a Sore Back.

Different tissues will be affected in each individual case. It is important to identify the affected tissues, so the correct treatment can be given. The idea that Spinal Manipulation is a “Cure All” for back pain is incorrect, and on some occasions it can actually make the condition worse.  

The area that the back pain is experienced is not always where the problem lies. For example, low back pain may have its source in the thoracic area. 

It is vital that all areas are examined when you have a sore back, and the affected tissues identified, and correctly treated.

Once the likely factors behind the back pain are found, Osteopathic treatment may help ease the pain, then good advice on exercise, diet, seating, posture, beds and lifting can go a long way in helping prevent its recurrence.
