Ross Allen: Back Pain Specialist & Chiropractor Naas

My own personal experience of back pain has formed the basis for my lifelong passion for managing & helping others dealing with their own back pain. This experience has imparted a deep appreciation of the detrimental effects of back pain on all elements of a person’s life.

If you are suffering with back pain and are unsure whether it is best to attend a physiotherapist or a chiropractor then, through examination, we can determine which particular approach is best suited to you. This largely depends on whether your pain is coming from your joints or the surrounding muscles. 

Throughout my 10 years of study, my research focus has been aimed primarily on back pain and neck pain treatment, including the positive effects of chiropractic manipulation on reducing pain. Having been exposed to a wide range of treatment methods this has allowed me to identify which techniques are most effective for certain types of pain.

Back Pain Reoccurrence Rates are Higher than Previously Believed – Prevention is Vital

While it was previously thought that low back pain tends to resolve over a number of weeks, more recent research suggests that this may not be the case & that low back pain may still be present in up to 75 percent of the population one year after injury.
This highlights the importance of early intervention with chiropractic care.

Here at Naas Chiropractic & Physiotherapy we use techniques such as chiropractic manipulation to ease pain and prevent the transition to long-term (chronic) pain.

Chiropractic interventions, allied with exercise rehabilitation tailored to address specific weaknesses, have been shown to speed recovery & decrease the reoccurrence of low back pain.

It is well known that long-term back pain is far more challenging to manage than a more recent onset back pain & for this reason a big emphasis is placed on preventing this transition to long-term back pain.

Do the Guidelines recommend orthotics or a back brace for managing back pain? 

Should I use orthotics or a back brace for back pain?

A comprehensive analysis of the back pain research published by the renowned N.I.C.E. group recommends the following:

1.2.3 Back belts should NOT be used for managing low back pain with or without sciatica.

1.2.4  Foot orthotics should NOT be used for managing low back pain with or without sciatica.


Are
 Spinal injections Effective for treating Low Back Pain?: What do the International (NICE) Guidelines Say?:

1.3.1 Spinal injections should NOT be used for managing low back pain.

 

Research published in the British Medical journal comparing Chiropractic Care with Hospital Outpatient Care for Acute and Chronic Lower Back Pain.

Conclusion: ‘Chiropractic almost certainly confers worthwhile, long-term benefit in comparison with hospital outpatient management. The benefit is seen mainly in those with chronic or severe pain. Introducing chiropractic into NHS practice should be considered.’

 

 

Chiropractic Manipulation superior to traditional care in back pain management
(Journal of the American Medical Association 2017)

An analysis of 15 studies involving more than 1,700 people with acute back pain was published in the April 11, 2017 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.

Spinal manipulation as used by chiropractors was compared with traditional back pain management which included education, physical therapy, and medications. The results found spinal manipulation led to better overall function compared with the traditional care group.   

Is Chiropractic Manipulation Effective for Treating a Disc Herniation?

McMorland G, Suter E, Casha S, du Plessis SJ, Hurlbert RJ. Manipulation or microdiskectomy for sciatica? A prospective randomized clinical study. J Manipulative Physiol er. 2010 Oct;33(8):576-584.

In this research, they studied a group of patients referred by primary care physicians to surgeons with symptoms of sciatica secondary to a disc herniation.  

Forty consecutive patients who met inclusion criteria:
(patients must have failed at least 3 months of nonoperative management including treatment with pain-killers, lifestyle modification, physiotherapy, massage, and/or acupuncture)
were randomised to either surgery or chiropractic spinal manipulation.

Sixty percent of patients with sciatica who had failed other medical management benefited from spinal manipulation to the same degree as if they underwent surgical intervention.

Patients with symptomatic lumbar disc herniation failing medical management should consider spinal manipulation followed by surgery if warranted.

The manipulation group received an average of 21 treatment sessions & an additional 6 supervised rehabilitation sessions over the 52-week duration of the study.

No adverse events were reported
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released its first-ever guidelines on managing chronic low back pain (LBP)
They recommended the use of physical therapies such as spinal manipulative therapy 
They DO NOT recommend the use of spinal traction (i.e. pulling the spine apart)
