Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
Back pain is a symptom that has many causes including muscle or ligament strain, slipped or herniated disc, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and spondylosis.
Back pain, slipped/herniated disc and degenerative disc disease can arise due to sub-optimal joint movement. Optimal spinal joint motion is important for disk and joint health, as movement encourages the exchange of fluids, nutrients and waste. Without good joint movement, discs and joints may degenerate at a faster-than-usual rate.
Kissun Chiropractic can help patients with back pain by identifying the underlying cause for the back pain or condition, the lifestyle factors which are likely to make it worse and the likely rate of progression of the condition. From this point a sound treatment plan can be implemented.
The Doctor cured me completely from my spine problem (slipped disc). I had the pain for more than 1 month before I was fortunate enough to meet the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic. The Doctor is a real professional! I have told all my friends about Kissun Chiropractic, even to those who have no pain, in case one day they may need such treatment.
I had two falls prior to seeing the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic. My physiotherapy treatment at the hospital did nothing to alleviate my pain nor did it improve my condition. I suffer from arthritis, lupus and severe osteoporosis and thought nothing could ever help. But now I know that such thoughts are untrue. The severe pain I suffered from my falls are greatly reduced. I used to lie in bed in pain and could not sit or stand for more than 10 minutes. Today I am able to walk, stand and even do light chores which at one point was impossible.
I would highly recommend Kissun Chiropractic as the Doctor took into consideration my existing medical conditions before coming up with a care plan. My treatments with the Doctor are mild and do not aggravate my osteoporosis.
Back Pain and Difficulty Sleeping
I experienced acute pain in my back and nothing I did could get rid of it. I chanced upon Kissun Chiropractic and after just two months my pain has been greatly alleviated! I used to have trouble sleeping on my back but now days I sleep like a log. I have been to hospital accident and emergency departments (A&E), other Chiropractors, etc and nothing seemed to work.
The Doctor approached my problem head-on and the way they conduct the sessions with me won me over. The Doctor didn’t make empty promises but explained to me every step of the way what's going to happen and how I am faring. I like the personal touch in my chiropractic sessions. The Doctor delivered what he promised and never overpromised. The Doctor’s approach to my back problem is very pragmatic but informative (in this modern time it is always good for a patient to know what is happening). The Doctor kept me posted of the development and patients are never in the dark.
The Doctor explained that treatment would be a thorough multi-pronged approach that includes not just adjustments but exercise as well. The Doctors at Kissun Chiropractic are pragmatic and flexible. The Doctors would modify treatments based on my feedback of pain and discomfort. In other words they listen to the patients and not just dispense with rigid treatment regimes.
I sustained a lower back injury when incorrectly lifting a heavy object. In addition to the initial pain, I was in a significant amount of discomfort when sitting, standing and even lying down.The Doctor made a preliminary diagnosis on my first appointment and subsequently sent me to have an x-ray done for further evaluation. Upon receiving the results of the x-ray, the Doctor then clearly explained my back problem to me. The Doctor has excellent bedside manner, and was very clear in communicating the possible causes and solutions to my problem. Exercises were suggested that I could do in my own time to expedite recovery and the Doctor was sure to give me updates every session to inform me of my healing progress. The treatments were very effective; I would always leave the sessions feeling like a brand new person. I would recommend that you give it a try. One appointment is enough to make a difference!
