Many people experience pain in their back, but this does not mean you should ignore it and suffer.

We have vast experience diagnosing and treating all types of pain in the back, helping improve quality of life for our patients. Whether the pain came on suddenly, following an incident or developed gradually, our chiropractors are sure to find the right treatment to relieve your pain and improve mobility.
Our clinic welcomes people from all areas of Warwickshire, including Leamington Spa, Coventry and Rugby.
The most common type of pain affecting the back is simple, or mechanical, pain. Simple back pain can involve muscles, ligaments and joints. Pain can also be caused by disc injuries and irritated, compressed or trapped nerves, but this is less common.
Pain in the back can be acute (symptoms are sudden and temporary) or chronic (pain returns regularly and can make everyday activities difficult).
Other types of back-related pain patients in Leamington Spa, Coventry and Rugby visit us with include:
Facet joint syndrome – affecting joints between vertebrae.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction – affecting the joints at the back of the pelvis.
Disc herniation/Slipped disc/Disc bulge – resulting from a disc injury and causing inflammation or compression of nerves.
Piriformis syndrome – affecting the piriformis muscle deep in the buttock which can compress the sciatic nerve, which in turn can cause similar symptoms to a disc herniation.
Muscle strain – pain in the lower back caused by overstretched or torn muscle fibres.
Back pain can start for all kinds of reasons. Our chiropractors identify the cause of pain to provide the most suitable treatment.
Common causes of pain in the back include:
You may feel pain in the lower, middle or upper back, or in more than one place. Pain can also occur between the shoulder blades and from waist level down into the buttocks and into the legs. Pain towards the top of your back may be related to shoulder pain or neck pain.
Pain which spreads down the legs can be the result of a slipped disc or wear and tear. This is called sciatica and you may also experience pins and needles, tingling, numbness and weakness in the leg and foot.
If back pain does not get better after a few days or gets worse, we recommend seeking professional advice – Walton Chiropractic is ready to help anyone in Leamington Spa, Coventry, Rugby and the surrounding areas.
The main treatment our chiropractors offer for back-related pain is spinal manipulation. This involves using our hands to free stiff or restricted joints. We also use mobilisation, which is the gradual movement of joints.
Our team can also provide other recommended treatments, such as dry needling, and rehabilitation. In addition, we offer lifestyle advice to aid recovery and prevent repetition of pain.
