Edinburgh Back Pain In Young Adults

Edinburgh back pain, while commonly understood to affect those of middle and older age, is also affecting a growing number of younger adults. These are also seeking chiropractors to relieve symptoms of back pain. There are numerous reasons for this, including poor working ergonomics and bad posture.

There are three main causes of back pain in young adults that requires treatment from an Edinburgh chiropractor. The first of these is back muscle strain. This can be caused by a range of activities from twisting while moving or making sudden movements to excessive exercising or lifting overly heavy objects. The pain experienced from a muscle strain can come from microscopic tears in either a muscle or ligament in the back, neck or shoulder. Spinal manipulation from a chiropractor supports the healing process and reduces recovery time. Degenerative disc disease is often considered as a condition that only affects older people looking for chiropractic treatment; however, it can affect individuals in their early twenties. Damage to the lumbar discs can cause instability in the lower back and pinch the sciatic nerve. Your chiropractor Edinburgh based can provide relief from symptoms and advice on how to strengthen the surrounding muscles to provide long term back care. The third main cause is a herniated disc. This problem is the main cause of sciatica, which causes the pain to travel down one, or even both legs, as well as the lumbar area and buttocks. The key purpose of chiropractic care here is, at least initially, to free the sciatic nerve from irritation.
