Back pain can occur acute or gradual. The most common symptoms include painful and stiff lower back, which is usually the worst in the morning when sitting. It usually feels better when walking or lying down. The back can also feel unstable and the pain is often concentrated around the hip and legs. Sometimes your back gets sore to avoid the worst pain.
The causes of acute back pain are many and sometimes complex. Therefore, treatment must be individually adapted and viewed from a holistic perspective. Common causes are snow shooting, heavy lifting and refurnishing. Other risk factors include incorrect posture, poor work environment, being overweight, smoking, error and overloads, psychological stresses and delusions. Back pain can also be due to heredity and reduced physical activity.
“Back shot” means that you get acute pain in the lower back. The pain can come both suddenly or creepily. The cause is usually some kind of overload. Common causes are, for example, shoveling snow, digging or lifting heavy in conjunction with a torque.
Disc herniation means that the shock absorbing disc between the vertebrae of the spine is broken. When the disk bulges out, it can push against the nerve roots in the spinal canal and pain occurs. In most cases, the herniated disk is formed without you doing anything special. Sometimes it can be because you, for example, lift heavy, twisted or bent back in a particularly unfortunate way. Lumbar disc hernias can affect the sciatic nerve and cause sciatic pain. Many also have disc hernias which do not cause any problems at all.
Common problems with herniated discs are pain in the back, pain that radiates into one leg, numbness, tingling and worse feeling in the legs. It is also common with pain in the neck, arms and hands as well as numbness, tingling and poor feeling in the arms and hands.
Disk hernias usually heal by themselves, usually after a few months. The treatment, which aims to relieve the pain, consists primarily of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs. This can be advantageously supplemented with the treatment of a chiropractor combined with a physical therapist. Many believe that all disk hernias must be operated. Nowadays, only severe disc hernias with neurological failure are operated. Bending disks and minor hernias are relatively common in adults. Thus, a detected disc hernia does not always mean severe back pain or sciatica. It is safe to go to the chiropractor and physiotherapist with hernia.
Pain that radiates from the back to the seat, thighs and lower legs is a related condition called sciatica. It occurs when the muscles and joints in the lower back, pelvis and hip area become so irritated or inflamed that the pain spreads over the leg. Sciatica pain can be reduced with the help of chiropractic treatment combined with physiotherapy.
Pain in the chest
Pain between the shoulder blades is common. It may not be that strange when you think of all the office work that is done at a high pace with rounded shoulders, forward bends and tense arms. Often the pain spreads up to the neck, into the shoulders and arms or up to the chest.
Of course, we have great respect for chest pains of concern for heart problems. Therefore, always take chest pain seriously. However, only one in five patients with chest pain actually have a heart problem. More common is that chest pain is caused by muscle tension and slight dysfunction of the chest. Concerns about any serious illness strengthen muscle tension and increase the pain experience that creates a vicious cycle.

A small twist can be enough to create a neck restraint. Neck restraints can be caused by an overload which causes a lock in the back of the neck. This can cause a nerve irritation that can cause severe pain and difficulty extending the head in one way or another. Sometimes it can be difficult to move the head at all.
Common causes of neck blockage are physical labor that causes muscle tension in the shoulders and neck. Another reason can be sleeping or sitting in a bad position, even being in a room with an open window with pulls can cause a neck restraint.
You can get whiplash or whiplash if the soft parts of the neck are subjected to excessive stretching. This is especially the case in traffic accidents. It is common if you are hit from behind and your head goes forward-back-forward, like a whip.
There is no uniform treatment for whiplash injuries, different treatment models can interact with each other. After a thorough examination of the onset of the problems, an orthopedic and neurological examination is performed. An X-ray examination may also be required to get the best possible idea of ??the extent of the injury.
If we consider the inconvenience to be within our area of ??treatment, we will begin the treatment in such a way that the inconvenience can be cured as quickly as possible without irritating the other tissue. In many cases, a chiropractic treatment can produce very good results. In the long term, most whiplash injuries have a good prognosis if help is received on time. With us, we work in a team of chiropractors and physiotherapists to achieve optimal results for the patient.
Joint & Muscle Disorders
Shoulder & shoulder pain
The common denominator for the most common shoulder pain is acute injury or miscarriage over time. The position of the shoulder blades and the supporting muscles play a particularly important role in all arm movements. One-sided postures often cause the arms to be held out slightly from the side of the body, with round, forward bends. Some of the stabilizing shoulder muscle is then overloaded and it can become crowded for the tendons that go under the clavicle up to the actual ball joint in the shoulder. Over time, inflammation and wear and tear of the tendons and joints can easily occur.
Inflammation of the joint’s joint capsule is called “frozen shaft”. It is often a spontaneous reaction in patients who have had shoulder problems before or after fracture of the upper arm or wrist. The condition is very painful the first time. The shoulder joint stiffens and it becomes difficult to lift the arm. Gradually the pain subsides but the shoulder joint is still stiff for several months. Most get well after a while and regain full mobility within 1-2 years.
Common symptoms are sharp pain in the shoulders when lifting the arms from the side up, especially more than 90 degrees angle. Pain during the night, especially if lying on the shoulder is another symptom. Pain in the upper arm just below the shoulder and sometimes even down into the forearm and hand is also common as well as swollen, warm and sore muscles.
The purpose of the treatment is to reduce the pain and restore normal function in the musculoskeletal system and nervous system. For shoulder pain, the chiropractor will treat what has impaired function, which is not always where the pain is. This can mean that, in addition to treating the shoulders locally, also treat neuromuscular function from the neck, shoulders and clavicles.
Repetitive strain Injuries
Load injuries usually result from long-term physical unilateral work, so it is important to create variation in movements to avoid the problem. To most easily avoid strain injuries, we recommend changing positions or taking a break of 15-20 seconds with relaxation or extra movements. This way, you can easily prevent a load injury.
There are many causes of hip problems. Hip problems can be caused by malfunction of the pelvis, lower back and hip joints. A chiropractor performs a thorough examination of the hip joints as well as the muscles and joints in the area to be able to make a fair diagnosis before a treatment can be started. Often a treatment is combined with rehabilitation with a physical therapist.
Knee problems can result from overloaded leg muscles / muscle brackets. This problem may be due to impaired neuromuscular function caused by low back pain. A chiropractor examines and derives cause and effect. Knee problems can also be related to a cross band, meniscus or wear (osteoarthritis).
Tennis Elbow / RSI
Tennis elbow usually refers to inflammation in a tendon attachment at the outside of the elbow. The same can also be found in a bracket on the inside of the elbow, also called a golf arm. Just as the name suggests, this injury often occurs, for example, in golf, tennis and other monotonous movements. Of course, this problem need not only arise in sports activities. For some, this inflammation occurs, for example, in gardening or if they have sat too much in front of the computer and used a computer mouse.
Injuries can occur after a period of overload of sports activities. Extreme loads in different sports or at work can create an acute problem. Damage in case of fall / tackle / pruning or excessive “uniform” movements can lead to different load injuries. A chiropractor can help diagnose and treat sports injuries, preferably in combination with a physical therapist.
Dizziness has been experienced by most of us. You feel wobbly, unstable and experience a swaying and unsteady feeling. Many people feel headaches and in some cases it may be black to the eyes. The balance is dependent on information from the eyes, balance organs and the body’s muscles and joints, especially in the neck.
The chiropractor performs a neurological examination as well as confirms the functioning of the neck and jaws. The chiropractor will then be able to provide you with an effective and safe treatment of what is disturbing the balance device, preferably in combination with the training of a physical therapist.
